Memorable Moments with Jorge Mesa, Founding Partner

How do you look back on the last four years, and how do you look forward to the next four?

Looking back at the past 4 years it’s hard to believe that we have come this far in such a short amount of time. It feels like just yesterday we were having conversations about starting Studio DADO and now it’s incredible to see how our team has grown and to see what a positive reaction Studio DADO has had in the cruise ship industry. The next 4 years are going to be even more exciting as many of our new build projects will have been delivered. A lot of the work we have been working on these past four years will finally be showcased and will be center stage for more press and opportunities for DADO. Excited to see what new and exciting relationships flourish from our expanding portfolio.

Favorite Album?

Beyonce duh! Lol

Most memorable design moment since DADO’s inception?

For me it was when we refurbished the spa on Carnival Sunrise (aka Carnival Triumph). It was one of the first projects we did with Carnival and the feedback we received that “it’s the most beautiful spa in the fleet” was something that warmed my heart. It was great to give an old vessel a new life and create a space that can compete with the new vessels out in the water. Honestly, for me it’s about the human connection with our clients and seeing them happy with the final results. It makes what we do so rewarding.
