The Match Starts Here

Cue the theme song and get ready to climb into the ring.

At a secret training facility located deep, deep underground the El Designo contenders are hard at work. The main room is piled high with inspiration collected over 20 years of design. Looming bookshelves are filled with books of the past, present and visions of the future. Masks and maps, paintings and antiques, illustrations and art supplies, paper samples and swatchbooks are efficiently laid out in misleading disarray. Here is where we, the design luchador's, the design free fighters, hone ideas into spectacular maneuvers.

El Designo offers our clients unique, custom-made design and illustration solutions. We create high quality crafted products. And promise the use of local suppliers and reduced environmental impact.
