You may know Rico Tallud as one of the founders of Be Well. The Art of Asian Therapies, one of the city's top spas and massage centers. An "ideas guy," Tallud is excited about a new project, an on-demand draw and print center called Diti (Draw It, Take It!), located at 2250 W. Foster. Tallud says the inspiration for Diti came from a birthday party he wanted to have for one of his children and creating t-shirts for the event. That conversation with his business partner, Tony Grammatis, sparked the idea. Grammatis, a childhood friend of Tallud's, already had the fully-operational print production business, and the two talked about how to best utilize a commercial space that became available next door. That entrepreneurial mindset was the catalyst for Tallud and Grammatis to collaborate, share ideas and launch Diti. Read more
