HELLO, MY NAME IS MARIO GARCIA.

________

I’m a Creative Director with a passion for reinventing brands and products. I’m a creative thinker and designer that loves working through failures, no matter how long it takes to find a great idea. I’ve led creative teams within global companies and worked on the agency side of branding and design. I thrive in collaborative environments and believe in creating the conditions for companies and cultures to flourish.

I currently live in Orange, CA with my amazing wife, three children and our pet guinea pig named Chloe. Don’t judge me. Born and raised in San Diego, I’m a so cal boy who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. Yep, you read that right, a math degree! A few years after graduating my creative brain decided to come alive and the next thing you know I’m attending Miami Ad School in San Francisco sharpening the conceptual thinking and design skills I never knew I had. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects from traditional ads for Electra Bicycles (which scored me an awesome cruiser) to rebranding Easton Sports, one of the most innovative sports brands in the world.

I appreciate you taking the time to read a little bit about me and I’d love to hear more about who you are and what inspires you.
