Our team defies the laws of status quo, and takes an innovative approach to redefine the standard event formula.
The DeMartino Design Group team is headed by CEO and Creative Director, Taylor DeMartino. With his direction, DDG has celebrated incredible occasions with some of Houston’s, and the country’s most notable of brands and clients. Taylor and his team create one-of-a-kind experiences that span the spectrum from intimate dinners to large-scale corporate and nonprofit celebrations.
While event elements remain similar across the board, its DeMartino Design Group's approach to how those elements are shaped that makes us different. We are involved in essentially all portions of each celebration including forming budgets, selecting venues, creating specialty menus, selecting incredible design and décor, experiential lighting, crisp sound, specialty entertainment and overall management to ensure a quality, creative and cohesive experience for all guests.
