Austin based company, and Proud of it!


Our Mission

Circtistic LLC, bringing art and technology together is an Austin, Texas startup founded by an MIT engineer, an architect, and an entrepreneur.  The diversity of this combination is exemplified by Circtistic's products, a unique fusion of art and technology with one simple idea in mind:

Hi-tech can be beautiful.

For the enormous part technology plays in our lives, we pay relatively little attention to it, merely assuming that our various gadgets will continue performing their stated function.  Here at Circtistic we hope to open your eyes to the overlooked and unusual nuances of technology, and hopefully, through creative expression, make you look at the modern world in a different light.

All our products are 100% lead free manufacturing and 100% original artwork.  They were designed in-house, right here in Texas, by a real artist. No computer programs or scripts were used to generate the painstaking detail on each piece; they were done entirely by hand.
