This year we had a big 10 Year Anniversary Celebration planned to thank all of our past and present clients and to highlight some of the best work of DYAStudio.
Given the recent humanitarian crisis faced by Puerto Rico, we are cancelling the event and instead focusing all of our efforts on helping our country through these hard times.
We had created a fundraising campaign – Rise PR – to help send aid to families in need. DYAStudio has donated all funds from our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration Event to the fundraising efforts and Rise Puerto Rico has already been able to help several families.
Due to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria, DYAStudio will be taking a sabbatical from our regular operations in Puerto Rico to focus on raising funds for Rise Puerto Rico.
If you would like to join our efforts, click here to make a donation. Your money goes directly to families in need. Every single penny goes towards purchasing much needed items that are sent directly to low income families currently struggling to get through this crisis.
We thank you all for trusting us.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eileen Riestra.
Eileen, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I still remember the day I designed my first piece of graphic design. It was in my third-grade class in 1990. Computers were introduced in my classroom and the teachers asked us to play with the software Paint already installed in the Apple Macs. I came up with a fish made out of big pixels, and I remember the teacher showing it off to the rest of my classmates. I went home proud and gave my mom my first computer generated artwork. Throughout high school, I often helped my friends design covers for their presentations. And by the time I was applying to college I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer.
This year, Eileen Riestra, owner and graphic designer of DYA Studio & Depict Brands, was selected by GDUSA as one of the ‘People to Watch’ in the Creative Community.
Eileen has more than 10 years of experience in the creative world and, as a woman entrepreneur, has focused on helping others grow their business through creative and targeted branding and design.
