SOME BRANDS WE’VE DESIGNED FOR

WHERE DID THE NAME CARDBOARD HELICOPTER COME FROM?

The first time I can recall using my imagination was when I was a young boy at my grandma’s house. I remember finding a large cardboard box in one of the playrooms, and I found myself fascinated by it. I told everyone in the house that I would make this cardboard box fly by the end of the day. While I wasn’t able to make it take off, it inspired me to keep creating and make bold, exciting things happen. The name is a reflection of the limitless imagination, fun, excitement, and play everyone has as a child.

STUDIO

Constructed in the early 20th century as a meat shop, our studio has housed a wide variety of businesses over the years, from an appliance repair facility to a temporary YMCA. While gray and unassuming from the outside, you’ll find a vibrant mix of color and inspiration in a wide open interior. In the nine thousand square foot studio you’ll find no enclosed offices, but instead welcoming, playful areas that foster creativity and evoke collaboration. The 2-story workspace was designed to reflect our limitless imagination, and with plenty of room to create, our team at Cardboard Helicopter is well equipped to transform product ideas into successful design achievements.

We are situated just a few miles from downtown Cleveland, which is experiencing a transformation that hasn’t been seen in years. Cleveland’s move from an industrial city to an innovation city has brought an influx of exciting projects and vibrant, new companies to the area. We couldn’t think of a better place to launch Cardboard Helicopter, and we are eager to grow and evolve with a city on the rise.
