Who We Are
De La is a multidisciplinary creative agency that supports independent makers by helping develop and communicate their brand, and extending our curated network of experts in the fields they need most. In an age of automation, we remain passionate about handmade objects and the people that are committed to preserving the historical traditions of their craft. We approach design and its presentation in a manner similar to fine art, where the histories, social contexts, and artisans behind them are as valuable as the final work itself.
How We Work
We like to think of DE LA as a one-stop-shop for emerging artists and designers to develop their brand. In collaboration with our professional network, we can develop your brand identity, create copy, a website, portfolio, conceptualize and execute photography, and provide an exhibition or showroom space in our studio. We matchmake between our clients and roster of freelancers to streamline projects through a single channel of communication.
Wherever you are in your process, we can help hone your vision and create a streamlined portfolio of your best work, with the words and aesthetic to match your vision across all platforms, from web to physical products.
Our carefully cultivated network of creatives in LA and abroad can tackle anything from graphic and web design to art direction, photo / video, and more. We play middle man to ensure your vision is expertly executed.
Our studio in the Arts District of LA is a gallery of handmade design objects and antiques. As a platform for sales of emerging design, this curated shop sells our core brands and hosts an array of pop-ups and concept shops.
DE LA Projects aims to make space for individual artists to experiment and showcase new ideas with curatorial collaboration. We also curate off-site, multidisciplinary exhibitions of design-specific practices.
