Brandon Miradi (Los Angeles). This is a bio about Brandon Miradi written by Brandon Miradi. I’m a designer. A designer who fell into design through working in restaurants.
I come from a long line of artists, but in the beginning I decided to stray from that path, instead, for the glamorous life of becoming a restaurant dishwasher.
While washing dishes I became supremely fascinated by the food and beverage scene in front of me. I worked my way up from dishwasher to wine director of Michelin-starred restaurants. It was during that time that I found myself beginning to obsess over the profound impact design (graphic, branding) could have on the experience of dining out.
With a creative instinct already in my blood, I taught myself design. I began by designing the brands for the restaurants I worked in, and soon I was being commissioned for projects all around the United States. My freelance design work took over my wine career, and I started a design firm called, A-Design-Firm. And now, through that firm, I build brand identities for new restaurants.
