The world’s first design studio to have creatives with intellectual disabilities on its team.
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.
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.
We’re a team of highly specialised professionals with backgrounds in management, major advertising agencies, social enterprises and foundations. We’re creatives, strategists and professionals who one day came to the realisation that we had not only the opportunity, but also the obligation to use our talent and experience to make our business much more transparent, much more sensible, and much more human.
Our aim is to work only with companies, partners and brands with values and social purpose, who understand, as we do, that a new model of business management and communicating with consumers is needed.
La Casa de Carlota’s approach to work has become a global benchmark for innovation and social impact. In March 2018, we were invited to present our business model at the United Nations’ headquarters in NYC.
