Assembly Design Studio (ADS) is a design and branding firm that caters to image conscious, experience driven businesses with a focus on hospitality. Located in downtown Boston and built on well over a two decades of experience, ADS is the creation of Michael and Erica Diskin
Erica is a former real estate marketer and high-end corporate event producer. She brings to the table a critical eye for interior design and a passion for working at a construction site. After a short stretch in print media at Boston Magazine, she got involved early on in the marketing and development of Boston’s Fort Point Channel neighborhood. During that time she was able to leverage her access to these raw spaces to build an impressive portfolio of brand launches, restaurant designs, and creative productions. Her hands-on approach to each project has allowed her to create unique experiences that pair classic design elements with raw materials.
Michael is a professional photographer, graphic designer, and writer who has spent the past two decades building a successful career in the worlds of fashion, food, media, travel, music, and commercial real estate. With roots in print design and experience producing high-end commercial and editorial projects, Mike is often asked to be involved in situations from concept to completion. He’s worked closely with some of the country’s top chefs on the opening of their new restaurants, he’s photographed some of the most beautiful people and places in the world, and his ability to understand how his work is consumed by the viewer has afforded him success.
The pair met in 2008 over the creation of an event and often discussed opportunities for creative growth within their city. Assembly Design Studio was born soon after.
Oh…and this is Assembly’s Director of Quality Control, Wrigley “the Wiggles” Joy and her assistant Lil’ P. Don’t let those googly eyes and smooshed-in-faces fool you, they are as relentless as they are cute.
