Carmelo Samano

Senior Art Designer

Joining the HMR Designs team nearly ten years ago, Carmelo has proven to be an irreplaceable craftsman in our ever-growing art department. He specializes in 3-D art and prop work, producing oversized (or undersized) design elements to any custom celebration. A six-foot broadway sign for your birthday? Carmelo. Giant ice cream cones for a mitzvah? Carmelo. He’s even executed a functioning ferris wheel on more than one occasion. When he’s not busy bringing a designers vision to reality, Carmelo loves to spend time with his family.
