John Lasurdo graduated with a degree in New Media from San Francisco’s Academy of Art in 2004. He quickly moved into a design production position at Allan Schneider Associates in Bridgehampton, which set the foundation for his growth over the next decade. Lasurdo then worked as a creative assistant to one of the Hampton’s top brokers and helped establish one of the most prolific advertising campaigns in the history of Hamptons real estate. He carefully observed the needs of the community and in 2010 responded by opening Dead On Design; catering sagely to the real estate community, yet branching beyond, quickly and successfully. John’s welcoming demeanor, sharp eye for detail and get-it-done work style have established his firm as one of the fastest growing businesses in the Hamptons.
