Graphic Design Principal
Deva Montalbano has lived and worked in the art and design community all her life. The daughter of an artist/graphic designer, she started in the “business” in the 80s helping her mother paste-up logos and packaging designs for some of Boulder’s premier startups. She is a graduate of the Metropolitan State University of Denver and has traveled extensively to China, Japan and Italy studying architecture and graphics and their cultural impacts on everyday life.
Deva and Joseph initiated studiotrope in 2003 around the belief that integrated design leads to the highest quality of life. This initial idea has manifested into the design collective which now includes graphic design, architecture and interior design. As Graphic Design Principal and Managing Partner for the firm Deva brings her passion for branding to every project.
