For Disney Store Senior Designer Enrique Pita, it’s always been a dream to work for Disney. Born in Havana, Cuba, Enrique moved to the US in 1980 and studied commercial art design at LA Trade Tech College. Since then, Enrique used his expertise to expand his career throughout a number of industries including print press, typography, illustration and graphic design for companies like Guess, Tiltworks and Jerry Leigh. At the Disney Store, Enrique creates artwork for everything from t-shirt graphics to Vinylmation. His recent creations include Radio Bot, Love Bot, UltraSonic Bot and El Elektro Bot from the Vinylmation Robots series.

An avid Disney fan, Enrique calls himself a “collector who creates collectibles”, and is proud to show off his robust collection of Disney figurines both at home and in the office.

  • Hi Enrique, I came across the announcement poster for your store appearance at a movie screening on the Disney lot. I’m not sure if you remember me, we went to LA Trade Tech together from ’86-’89 and I remember you really well.

    So happy for your accomplishments at Disney, and I’ll try to stop by at the store to meet you.
