Dora Drimalas is the executive creative director and co-founder of Hybrid Design. Dora’s extensive background in brand strategy and design has allowed her to work intimately with some of the largest brands in the world such as Nike, TED Conferences, Lego, Apple, Samsung, Mohawk Fine Paper, and Starwood Hotels.

The studio environment at Hybrid centers around the idea that new things happen when opposing influences collide. Hybrid proves this theory daily with their studio work and their experimental toy company and retail store, Super7, and its various artist collaborations and projects.
