malaquita design

Being born in Mexico City represents an interesting challenge to the senses, it implies a handful of patience and tolerance towards the city itself. Design is for me the tool I use to keep it real, to keep myself free. 

In a city brimming with diversity, I needed to recognize the things I could work with and to always try to do my best. As a designer, I developed my Mexican identity by living in a busy city filled with contrasts between the ancient 16th century, Modern times and the Contemporary era. In my professional career I've been part of Zurdo Lab, a design collective, and worked as an ambassador for Adidas All Originals. I have also published my work in different printed media like Nylon Mexico, Podio, and Glocal Magazine. 

Today, I´m expanding my business as entrepreneur and co-founder of the brand and atelier: Mona Taller. Since 2013 we've been given projects of furniture and interior design. Early into my career, I´ve learned that leading is a tough task. Leading a project from beginning to end requires true effort and strength. As a leader, it is necessary to have the ability to listen to other's opinions in order to have the best results for the team.
