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 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.
