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.

    Comments about Recycled Cardboard Trophy Fish:

    My son and I love to find unique projects and when we came across this one we thought it could be perfect. (I'm sure it's actually a Bass) We ordered it two days ago, received it today and constructed it almost immediately. I enjoyed a glass of red wine so as not to correct too much and he, my 5 year old, was really able to do most of the project himself. I did the paper bits at the end for the fins and face and it is already hanging in our living room! This was a BLAST to put together for both of us. while I don't much care for taxidermy I may have walls full of the other recycled creatures in the very near future. For any mom out there who is either a construction type gal or considers herself more Martha Stewart, this is for you!

    Service and delivery comments:

    My son and I (I being mom) saw this fabulous project online and watched the video and our jaws dropped. Perfect for us! we ordered it two days ago and just finished assembly. I'd say awesome for service and delivery.

    Comments about Recycled Cardboard Trophy Fish:

    My husband is a avid hunter and fisherman, and works in the public sector. He can't display any real mounts so these are perfect for adding his personality to his office space. I bought him a deer head mount for Christmas and he was really thrilled with it. He put it together last night in about one hour. He's very happy with the way it looks

      Gave it to my "bonus son" and his eyes lit up. He and I put together the deer a year ago and he was very excited to get this for his graduation from 5th grade.

            The pictures for putting this together were just the ticket, who needs words! Wayne, the fish, is happily hanging on the wall where he has already received many complements! Very unique gift and fun to put together!

            Comments about Recycled Cardboard Trophy Fish:

            Wayne is a big hit on my tween son's wall. The recycled cardboard is a fun and unique concept for "taxidermy". The all-pictures directions are a bit difficult to follow - wish the video version of the directions had been pointed out right up front.
