Brooklyn, NY, US



Steven M. Caruso is an Experiential Creative Director and Creative Technologist with a background in Industrial Design, Exhibit Design, and 3D Graphics.

Working as an industrial designer and agency creative has given Steven an appreciation for the equal importance of both the artistic vision and technical execution of design projects, whether physical or digital.

A native of upstate New York and graduate from Rochester Institute of Technology, he’s been living and working in Brooklyn for over a decade. Outside the studio—or in it, at odd hours—he’s a persistent tinkerer and amateur engineer. He’s continually building, experimenting, coding, restoring, studying, and creating.
