Myles Mendoza Interview Transcription

Myles Mendoza: Before I even got into design, I originally wanted to be an architect when I was probably a senior in high school, like I took drafting and I really thought it was fun to kind of design layouts of houses and foundations and stuff. But when I kind of looked into how much math you really need to know for architecture, I was like, “Ooh, I’m going to pass because I’m terrible at math”. But I knew that I wanted to do some kind of art because I’ve been sketching since I was a little kid.

I used to draw logos in my notebooks just because I thought it was fun and it would be logos like my favourite skateboard brands, and I actually used to if I would, my dad would get me a toy or something. It’s so weird, but I would actually cut out the logo of the toy and just keep it for whatever reason. Like I had no … I just thought it was cool and fast forward to today, it’s so funny that that’s what I ended up being in the industry for.
