MIAMI — (July 2, 2024) — Studio DADO, the Miami-based design practice, has named Jovanny Lopez as an Associate and Camilo Peña a Senior Designer in a move that strengthens the firm’s next generation of design talent.

In making the announcement, Yohandel Ruiz, one of DADO’s four founding partners, praised the talents of both Lopez and Peña: “Jovanny and Camilo contribute so much to who DADO is. They’re both impressive creative talents who understand the unique challenges of what we do, but they also help define our culture and personality. They’re our future.”
