Dondi Aguirre is a multi-disciplined artist and visual designer with a concentration in EGD/ XGD based in Austin Texas. Growing up in Santa Monica he was enriched by the diverse culture of Los Angeles taking interest in music, art, good food, and surfing. Going back to his home-born city of Austin Texas in 2008 he immersed himself in Austin’s artist community showing work in galleries and selling work as a commissioned artist.
With a background in fine art and working in hospitality, he transitioned his passion for helping others and natural creativity towards earning a BFA in Communication Design at Texas State University.
His interest in ethnography, architecture, and experiential design has led to a high passion to understand people’s experiences in their environments. His fine art, inspired by figurative forms and abstract environments, has cultivated a foundation to understand emotions; which has fostered an awareness of human empathy. Dondi cultivates design solutions through story and empathy in his work to enhance the digital and physical environment for people's experiences. He nerds out when at the airport from all the wayfinding signage systems and place-making pictograms at the zoo. Dondi is a current member of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design.
Laina is his design partner and you can often catch them playing fetch at Zilker park when they aren’t in the office. They are always up for coffee so feel free to reach out for a chat. Don’t forget to bring a pup treat for Laina.
