La Casa de Carlota is a design studio where creative and professional designers, illustrators, students of design schools, creatives with autism and Down’s syndrome, a Dutch and a couple of vegetarians work. Having this unusual and extraordinary mix of different and, at the same time, complementary talents allows us to offer our customers innovative, fresh and different design solutions for their products and services.
Thereby, we have become a worldwide reference in creative innovation and social impact. We didn’t invent creativity, we only explore new ways of discovering it.
"Good creativity arises when the brain interacts by interpreting things from different points of view and from different perspectives"
La Casa de Carlota was chosen by Forética as one of the best social initiatives in 2014 and selected by La Caixa as "Empresa Incorpora" for its social work. We have also been awarded several Laus, International Graphic Design and Visual Communication Awards.
We received the international prize of Corresponsables Foundation for the best social project of 2016 and the European Design Award IED in 2017. In 2014 and 2016 the Aura Foundation chose us as "Empresa con Aura" for our contribution to the labor insertion of people with disability and in 2017 the City Council of Barcelona has awarded us the "Ciutat de Barcelona" award in recognition of our innovation work in the design field.
Since 2017, La Casa de Carlota became the first European design studio with the BCorp certificate.
