I couldn't run my business without these:

Meet our founder

I’m Meredith.

I didn't major in this. I didn't dream of this when I was a kid. I stumbled into design, did the work, and fell in love. 

I was working at a restaurant in Santa Barbara and the manager asked me to try my hand at designing the menu. I got lost in the joy of the project. After I thought “maybe I could JUST DO THAT.” Since then I have trained at top tier agencies with high profile brands before launching Quixotic and building the design agency I dreamed of. 

I’ve helped hundreds of women-owned businesses become the go-to in their industry with Quixotic’s signature, results-driven branding process. 

Being able to use my struggles in building a successful design biz to help someone else fasttrack there success brings me so much fucking joy.

a note to our students:

We’re here for the ambitious, creative, and brilliant entrepreneurs that want more.

(Psst - that's you!)

Married to:

my middle school crush

I know it might seem like my vibe is all champagne, leather, and late nights. But the truth is, I've got some grandmother vibes IRL. You can find me knitting in a cozy chair after work.

SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGIST

Hey there, I'm Tori!

 

I love all things marketing and specialize in social media strategy. I think it’s so cool how much the right branding and strategy can catapult the success of a business. Prior to working for Quixotic I ran a business development company where I coached other women entrepreneurs.

I just had my first baby in February #newmom and I'm a huge reality TV fan... Bravo is life.

SENIOR DESIGNER

Katie, here! After years designing for the corporate world, I found my true love: graphic design for small businesses with big dreams.

I'm born and raised in Sacramento, and made my way down to LA where I received a BA in Graphic Design from Azusa Pacific University and stayed in LA ever since. While I have a love for all things design, my specialty is minimal, modern branding. When I'm not designing, you’ll find me with a book in hand or trying a new craft brewery with friends.
