Brandon is an alum of the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. After growing up in the mountains of Colorado, he moved to Denver for school and has been there ever since. Brandon’s experience has taken him from a small product design agency, to his own two-partner design studio, to MojoTech, where he enjoys the challenge of solving real-world problems. He’s a major coffee snob and is often seen hanging out with his wife, and Dachshund, Parker.

I went to college at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Denver. While in school, I hopped around a couple shops as an intern, eventually accepting a position at a small product design agency right out of school. After a couple years there, I left and started up a two-partner design studio working on projects both print + digital. A few years passed and then I became interested in MojoTech for the next step in my career because of the great projects and team that work here.
The most interesting project I’ve ever worked on was a product for buying and selling cars. It was interesting because I’d just been through the dreadful process of buying a new car with my wife so I was able to use that knowledge to inform my decision making during the project.
The best thing about design is having the opportunity to create solutions for everyday problems. My least favorite thing in the design industry are egos.
You have to be a good listener. As much as you’d like to think you know about a particular subject, it’s good to be able to understand knowledge from others, and receive feedback on your work.
Sitting down at a desk every morning and owning the potential to make something, it’s a great feeling. Better than filling out spreadsheets all day.
I’ve worked on a couple naming projects in the past that were extremely challenging. Naming someone else’s company is no easy task.
I’m excited to work with a team of talented individuals on fun/challenging projects. Also, the office dogs are a major perk.
Tough question. A solar powered drone maybe? So I could see how far I have to swim to find civilization. Or it could be a high-tech ‘message in a bottle’ situation.
I’m sure VR and AR have been common answers here so I’m gonna go off the cuff and answer with Chatbots and/or one of the Boston Dynamics Robots.
If I wasn’t a designer, I’d probably be an Architect or a Chef. Architect because I love working with space and dimension. Chef because I love food/tacos. Who doesn’t?
I’m a simple guy. Sharing a quality cup of coffee and a tasty pastry with my wife is what makes me happy.
Both. See you on the other side!
