NoDá Design Studio started as a company that offers a wide range of creative services with a focus on Laser Cutting and Engraving. Our passion for design led us to create our very own product line: Laser Eye – NoDá Design Studio®. We’ve created a range of laser cut and engraved home products, greeting cards, games, gadgets, accessories and other gifts.
We work with various types of materials, but tend to use sustainable wood as prime material in our products. Everything we make is a combination of our design skills and the technology of laser cutting and laser engraving. Our product design is 100% original, every piece is made and hand finished in Brooklyn, NY.
One of our biggest challenge is working from our home studio. We’ve outgrown our space, and there’s no more room for additional tools that can benefit our processes. We’ve managed to turn our living room into a full production house, and we look forward to move into a bigger space where we can fulfill more orders.
Our customer base comes from both sides of our business, both retail and custom services. Our retail side allows us to promote our laser cutting services, and our retail production has made us perfect our use of our tools and finishing processes. We carry our craftsmanship into our professional services, creating that way a customer base that can help us promote our business by word of mouth. We have several goals for our company, both short term and long term.
Our short term goals include fulfilling our holiday market production (Union Square Holiday Market, Artists and Fleas, Greenpointers Holiday Market, and Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar), buying a second laser engraver, and moving into a new studio space. The holiday markets participation covers about 40% of our annual market income; therefore, we give priority and focus on this time of the year. Some long term goals include, having a production house in Brooklyn NY where we can bring the community together with job opportunities and art related workshops. We look forward to excel in our industry and become one of the top design companies in USA.
We are proud that we were able to quit our jobs in “Corporate America” and put all of our focus and energy into something we are really passionate about. We started with a few ideas and very little knowledge of how to run a business. Now, a year and a half later, we feel like we’ve learned so much and we are ready to take this business to the ultimate level of success.
