An award-winning design and innovation boutique. Since 1995 We have collaborated with business directors and entrepreneurs to improve their results, by developing new products, services, brands, strategies and spaces, bringing bold ideas to life.
Working globally, acting locally! Is at the core of our business; we work in small team Groups, dedicating special attention to every customer's needs.
Since 1995 our team has kept renewing, allowing young, talented individuals to work and learn alongside our best professors, businessmen and entrepreneurs.
Each project we take on is particularly designed and crafted through our Toronto team's futuristic lens, the Latin touch of our staff in Bogotá, and our team members' outstanding experience and assistance at our European and American offices.
Through consumer analysis, we identify trends, formulate visions, propose strategies, and combine solutions to create spaces, brands, products, graphics, and services to maximize our clients’ brand exposure, recognition, social benefit, and profitability.
In addition to advising and designing the right strategies, we work together with our clients to develop real opportunities to improve their business goals.
By applying ten innovation variables, we deliver transversal solutions that range from product design, business models, channel and network design, retail space, and consumer experience to customer service, branding, marketing, and communication strategies that generate a real commitment from their customers.
Many people claim to know the trick when it comes to innovation. But how many experts really have what it takes?
WHAT WE DO

WE BRING IDEAS TO LIFE
The world of ideas and business are related, but how many of those ideas are the billion-dollar ones? Which of them should be considered? We have developed methodologies to go from a dream scenario to a business focused on results, giving life to the ideas that make a difference.

Check out some of the highlights!
MORE THAN 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, DREAMS AND RESULTS
CD&I Associates was born in 1995, where our founding partners, the designers Angelica Díaz, Luis Angarita, and the industrial engineer Lina Angarita, got together with the idea of having fun, getting ahead, and earning enough to live as "creators" in a place where this was a utopia.
We have understood this whole time that in our business, the results are what count, and in this way, we guide the projects so that we can help our clients grow.
Over the years, we have had the opportunity to grow and expand to countries like Spain and Canada, as well as develop projects in Italy, Spain, Germany, Mexico, the United States, and Central and South America.
We have enjoyed working with startups, entrepreneurs, and Fortune 500 companies in different categories ranging from artisan products with local indigenous groups to services that support entrepreneurship for non-profit organizations.
SUCCESSES, AWARDS, AND RECOGNITIONS
We have received more than 30 distinctions, mentions, and recognitions, including the Red Dot Design Award, Montreal's Arts and Business Personality, the Steel Pencil Award three times, the nomination for Innovators of America, the Madrid and Shanghai Biennials, and more.
