who we are
FROM OUR FOUNDER
Graphic design came to me in bookstores. Growing up, I was drawn to books where the visual experience went far beyond the cover art — where the design spoke louder than its form, producing a powerful moment of connection with the reader.
I decided I wanted to work in pursuit of moments like that: creating opportunities for people to find something that truly speaks to them. My team and I carefully approach every project to find the concepts that click right into place.
My work is truly my passion, and my family is my lifeblood. My wife and I are raising our two daughters in sunny Austin (amid tacos and cedar allergies) and we love the life we’re building here.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Having visited his family’s hometown all of childhood, Ernesto was finally exploring the city on his own — while his mind swirled with thoughts of his life and career ahead. As he looked to the taxi driver’s window, he noticed the name on the ID: ‘Malagón.’
As it turned out, the actual taxi driver didn’t match the picture at all: ‘Malagón’ was a borrowed name. It served as a sign for Ernesto, an invitation to form a new identity and bring an adventurous spirit to his work — and to the world at large.
