Diversity
is the new creativity.

La Casa de Carlota is a design studio that operates on a different business model. We work with extremely diverse talent and have a serious conviction that creativity is the path to revolutionizing our industry and making our work more impactful.

Generating new ideas is easier if (very) different brains work together.

We wanted to experience what happens when we take the creative process to the limit. What happens if an experienced creative works with a fine art student or with a person born with Down Syndrome? And how can the chaotic and unexpected brain of a person with autism influence and question linear thoughts?

What we’ve discovered is that having an unusual and extraordinary combination of diverse and complementary talents allows us to offer our clients innovative, fresh and vastly different design solutions for their products and services, while at the same time, contributing to generating a valuable and transcendent example of social impact.
