In early 2002, Mixer founders Blake West, Julie Heard and Chris Cavello gathered together for lunch to share their ideas about the kind of design consulting business they wanted to create. Quitting their jobs with mortgages and young families was pretty scary, particularly after the dotcom bubble. They needed to identify the magic sauce that would help them stand out and succeed. It turns out they didn’t need to look far. It was already hard-wired deep within each of their value systems. From that moment on, Mixer Design Group was built on a simple premise: a dedication to earning trust and developing great relationships.
Mixer continues to thrive on strong and lasting relationships with our clients. Not simply the companies we work for, but the people we work with. From our beginning in a small office in South Austin to our custom-built world-class design facility today, the talented people of Mixer have always come through to deliver world-class results. Our secret sauce is not magic. It’s not hype and it’s not a tagline. It is who we are. Thank you all for this wonderful twenty-year run. We look forward to what we will build in the future. You and us, together.
