About Us

A central coast start-up founded in 2019 by two college students.

Armadillo Designs was founded by Sam Hunt and Fabian Araujo, two Cal Poly SLO alumni who started this venture in the 2019 summer accelerator hosted by Cal Poly's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.


With both founders being raised in the construction and automotive industries, they were eager to solve the problems of the everyday tradesman, construction worker, outdoor and truck enthusiast. 

At Armadillo Designs, their mission is to innovate for an easier tomorrow within the automotive world.
