Small Team, Big Impact

Mother Daughter Team - Barbara & Monique Virgilio
Coming from humble beginnings, was established as a freelance designer portfolio back in 2001 in East Harlem, NYC.

The portfolio we provided included graphic designs and web designs, as well as UX and UI design too. We’ve worked with notable companies such as Triumph Learning, eBay, adMarketplace, Thomas Publishing and more, bringing our creative web services to startups and small-to-medium-sized businesses across the US.

After moving to the midwest and incorporating in 2015 as MyDesignSpace, Inc. we have worked steadily to build a new portfolio of local client work.
