What is CBLU Design Studio?

We are the world's first "sip and print" studio where we connect people through art and technology in a completely new way. Our patent-pending Design Parties take groups on a journey of digital design, tapping into ancient art techniques that are seen across time, religions and cultures.

How does it work?

How does it work?

Each Design Party focuses on abstract art where there is no such thing as perfection: Mandalas, Paisleys or Geometrics. With tablets as our canvas, a user-friendly app and Art Instructors make the experience fun, simple and memorable. Even the least creative person can make breathtaking designs that we can print on items like journals, apparel, jewelry, pillows and more.

Meet Desiree, our Founder

CBLU Design Studio is the brainchild of St. Petersburg entrepreneur, Desiree Noisette.  Desiree's background is varied - she practiced construction law for years before jumping ship to start a swim and resort wear boutique (Cerulean Blu).  

During her time at Cerulean Blu, Desiree learned how to design apparel by harnessing her new found passion for textile design.  After studying the technology and art form for years, she created patent-pending technology that gives CBLU Art Guides the ability to help people of all skill levels design amazing prints for custom apparel, home decor and gifts.
