Our Story

My name is Juan Paz, born and raised in Guatemala, Central America. I'm the one on the bottom left. I currently live in Amatitlan, Guatemala and I have 3 kids and a beautiful wife. I have been working design all my life. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Industrial Mechanics in Guatemala. Before getting into graphic design, I was designing industrial parts

for local companies in Amatitlan in a workshop called "Barimer." This was the first "Mechanical Workshop," I had ever worked in after graduating. My goal as a kid was to become a Mechanical Engineer so after graduating, I wanted to continue my studies in my local University, but given the type of job I had I felt like more time was needed on my end to pursue this goal. So, I decided to stop working at this workshop and get a job in the call Center Industry in Guatemala where they offered bilingual speakers the opportunity to work for big tech companies like Google and Wix. They offered me a time schedule that I would need to pursue my goal to finish my professional schooling and so, I went for it. Here is where time justs starts flying, I get older my kids do too, and before I knew it 10 years had passed and I 

never started my university degree. For some reason I always had an excuse, whether it was money or time. I decided to look for an alternative as deep inside my goal had changed from wanting to work for a big Industrial Plant as an Engineer to wanting to have the freedom to do what I loved to do (designing stuff). By this time I was working for Wix, a big Web Builder. I started to notice that most people loved my suggestions for their sites, and I enjoyed getting to know new people and they enjoyed talking to me. This is when it all "clicked," why don't I just start working web design? I already have a background in technical design, why not do this? My eldest daughter was already 20 by this time and she also wanted to work design with me as she enjoyed design work also when she was younger. So we both decided to start a business together. My daughter's name is Lucrecia she is the one on the right. By the time she

graduated which was 2 years prior starting this business she was already working for another company. For which she has a lot of love for so she currently does design part time with the goal of doing this full time as we grow.
