1646 Ideation Studio is the joint venture of Carlos Avila and Andrew Leslie. The studio began when both Carlos and Andrew met while attending grad school at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California. Sharing a mutual interest in methods to practice and explore the discipline of design, the duo decided to form their own studio.
