Luis Rodrigalvarez

After working as a designer for several design firms, manufacturers, and advertising companies in Madrid, Luis followed his wife to Charlottesville, Virginia and landed at Cardboard Safari as head designer. The quick success of his first design, a cardboard deer trophy, emboldened them to make more.

Luis discovers new ideas from traveling in airplanes, subways and cars. "The process of being in motion to another place makes me think from a different perspective and gives me time to turn ideas around in my head."

When starting a new design he considers the material or the tool as these define the possibilities and limitations. "The fragility, flatness and strength are the main characteristics of cardboard that drive my projects and spawn many small sketches and notes."

When not designing Luis loves to cook and share his recipes with family and friends. collection

    Comments about CARDBOARD ANIMAL HEADS:

    I bought this to use for our son's nursery and it's absolutely perfect. You could spray paint it for some color, but I love the cardboard! If he ever grows out of it I'll use it for my own decorating. Ha! I was a little intimidated by the number of pieces it had, but they were SO EASY to assemble! If you can match numbers together, you can put this together. I was also concerned I'd ruin a piece when removing it from the cutouts, but that was fine as well. Great quality, great product.

              Comments about CARDBOARD ANIMAL HEADS:

              My son, who falls in the tween category, is so hard to shop for! If it's not an expensive electronic game, he's not interested. I went out on a limb this Christmas, purchasing the cardboard moose head for him and the results were fantastic! He chuckled at first sight, noting that he's never seen anything like it, and then commented that he looked forward to putting it together right after we finished opening the rest of our Christmas gifts. To my relief, the cardboard pieces were sturdy and yet still easy to punch out, making the assembly as easy as pie for my 12 year old. He had it assembled and hung on the wall in under an hour.
              I love how the moose head looks so much that I look forward to purchasing the rhino head for my own classroom!

                This was the final gift of our Christmas evening, and it created much laughter and, perhaps, a little envy from non-recipients.

                    I bought two elephants and one deer. After reading on the package that the assembly was listed as "advanced", I decided to open one to see if it could be assembled by a 13 year old. The instructions inside were very vague and consisted mostly of arrows pointing in the general direction of what, I supposed, would be the spine for assembling the head. I had nothing in my package resembling this piece so I went online to watch a video. Sure enough I was missing not two pieces but four essential pieces. The only comic relief i had out of this disappointment was watching the person struggle putting the pieces together. even she was unsure about which piece went where! Otherwise, I am very sorry for this purchase and will return the two unopened packages.

                      This was to be a substitute for a mounted deer head for a young man who had just shot his first deer.

                        I bought the elephant head for a birthday gift for my brother. It was very simple to put together since it was all numbered. Don't be afraid to use some elbow grease while putting it together.

                        I also spray painted the elephant grey after it was assembled. The cardboard is very sturdy and held up well to being painted. It makes a great gift.

                        Purchased this as a housewarming gift for my niece's first apartment at college. It looks awesome and we had a good time putting it together, finding the perfect spot for it, then taking pics with it! It's made of cardboard so not super sturdy and we had trouble getting the final backing on it but nothing an extra nail couldn't cure.
