Lisa’s first step into the design world came during high school when she decided to try her hand at sign painting to earn summer cash. That experience started her down a path that led to a degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, to jobs with several leading design firms, and to founding Catalone Design in 1997. Lisa approaches each job with the same mindset: every client has a story to tell, and no two stories are alike. A creative thinker and team-builder with a talent for grasping a client’s “big idea” or core concept, Lisa advises clients not to settle for the conventional when the unconventional will work better. She oversees the firm’s operations and is involved in the creative process for every project. She is former adjunct professor at the Corcoran College of Art + Design and has served on the executive board of the Washington, D.C., chapter of AIGA.
Rodolfo is your quintessential “idea guy.” A veteran designer and visionary thinker who previously worked with some of the top design firms in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, he has an uncanny knack for coming up with design solutions that take clients above and beyond what they might have imagined when they first called to discuss a project. Multitalented and eager to learn something new, Rodolfo is a man of varied interests—architecture and furniture design among them—and many media. He is leading Catalone Design’s ventures into the evolving field of 3D animation and digital media. He guides the creative concept for all projects, overseeing design and art direction. Rodolfo is a graduate of Atlanta’s prestigious Portfolio Center and has taught at the Corcoran College of Art + Design.
