Death By Design, Co. is collaborative venture of Michelle Maynard and Teena McClelland which began in 2005. A special effects and video based project, Death By Design, Co. offers a unique service to individuals who are interested in constructing, exploring, watching, and documenting their own fictional “Hollywood” horror movie death scene.


Maynard and McClelland see Death by Design, Co., as a safe vehicle for exploring ideas of myth, storytelling, cinematic illusion, celebrity, and our own mortality. They achieve this by incorporating the formal appeal of splattered gore with a narrative structure and providing a humorous encounter with death through extreme situations and stunning visuals.

DxD provides immersive experiences where every detail is choreographed to transport the client into a new dimension.
