Product Designer, Benjamin Kelley, and Interior Designer, Vanessa Kelley, team up to fill a gap in the A+D marketplace.
Culminated out of our garage, we began with a desire to ease the difficulties with assembly, transporting and presenting client presentations in a professional manner. This sparked the beginning developments of a simple, versatile and stylish solution that provides designers and architects the basic tools they need to work smarter and communicate more effectively.
Prototype, market test, refine and repeat. This cycle happened hundreds of times with hundreds of very talented designers. But, finally the Ando Design Box was born.
We do want to give thanks and credit to all of our amazing and talented friends and partners. Thank you for the opportunity to connect, inspire and contribute.
Our journey has just began. So, please keep in touch and let us know where we can improve and contribute.
