We did not start off in a suburban garage! It was more a three person outfit,
packed into a small, rented space in Colombo with a vision to deliver benchmarking
creative communication solutions. We were a small team, with a big dream in a
huge industry of gigantic players! Size aside, we were (and remain) passionate,
driven and bold, confident that our work would speak for itself.
With a growing interest in our design work, which back then was our sole offering,
we started gaining recognition as a ‘design house’. Not long after, EL Art Studio 89,
as we were then known due to our exclusive design services, was servicing local
start-ups, SME’s and enterprises.
Long story short, 17 years, 3 shifts, 1 re-brand and many expansions later, EL89
Studios is today a fully fledged brand communication solutions provider, servicing
local and global brands across multiple industries. However, we remain
uncompromisingly faithful to our ‘small team, selective client, quality output’
philosophy, ensuring our team of craftsmen retain their mastery, producing
nothing short of a masterpiece on every delivery, every time!
