Around the Studio

In 2011, we launched the design studio and began the entrepreneurial shift from visual design strategy, to textile & surface design.

In 2015, Gino + Dot began.


It was born out of a love of family and a love of creativity.
Two essential fibers that fold both inspiration
and authenticity into daily work life.


original designs

Gino + Dot is located in warehouse studio space in The Pendleton Art Center in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine district. We proudly tap into the talents of the local and regional maker community to fabricate our original pattern designs into printed and finished products.

We design our own patterns, then create coordinating collections of pillows + prints with a fresh, authentic personality. Designs begin at the old drafting table. Then recreated & colorized in the digital world. And final collections are born.

Small batches. That’s how our products are created. No large production runs. Hands on. Everybody pitches in.
