Culturally Based Design
Otto Design Group was founded in 1990 to explore the intersection between design, innovation, culture and enterprise. We are design professionals with a depth of experience in creating cutting edge cultural environments, community based developments, and successful brand strategies. Our purpose is to help bring forth good design, ideas, and businesses that improve quality of life on the planet.
Founder, Phil Otto, completed his studies in Cultural Anthropology at Stanford University, as well as advanced studies in Human Development from Pacific Oaks College of Pasadena before embarking on a journey of making memorable spaces. A point of view based in culture informs the work we do and influences our approach to place making and experience.
