COMPANY

WHO WE ARE

When a Blue Man with a passion for rhythm and soul off the stage joined forces with a film Set Decorator with the vision to shape lifestyles rather than just set the scene, Me and General Design was born.

Real-life couple Cristina Casañas-Judd and General Judd both had former careers as individual collaborators in large-scale production ensembles charged with creating mood and personality and ultimately, entertaining. With what better arsenal to veer off into the interior design space? To us, a neighborhood’s history and future inspire in both direct and experimental ways, the demographic needs to be spoken to both aesthetically and emotionally, and team effort informs every nuanced decision.

We lead a roster of talent from our Dumbo, Brooklyn office who share our vision for pushing creative boundaries and building not just beautiful spaces, but inspired brands. We specialize in new residential development and/or restorations with full amenity packages, hospitality and retail design, as well as private residences. Take a peek into our design world and see how we have even created customized papers and products to help our clients stand up and stand out. For M&GD, the journey truly is the destination.
