Dominic Montante

Taking things apart before he could walk, Dom has always been interested in how things work. Growing up, he realized product design offered the perfect intersection of his lifelong passions for problem-solving, drawing, and making. Dom believes that in a world of frustrations, design is the solution.

Imported to Canada, Dom was raised in Rochester, NY and is a 2017 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, OH. During his fourth year, Dom won First, Second, and Third place for three separate design submissions in the International Housewares Association Student Design Competition as well as awards from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio (AICUO).

When not immersed in product development, Dom enjoys studying foreign language and is an aspiring children’s book illustrator.
