Mochila was founded during a cross country road trip from Oklahoma to California to New York. After 7 years running a screen printing and design studio, Valentin Esparza set out on a 10,000 mile journey to start a graphic design company. Mochila is not only a company, Mochila is a way of life – a way to find yourself and your purpose in life by hitting the open road. All while working remotely. We are now composed of individuals with various disciplines. Our work encompasses brand identities, digital design and development, print and packaging, and photography. Our commitment is derived from a serious love of design – we not only love the creative work behind each project, but also the thought and reasoning behind each decision. The road to a good brand is long, but we’re here for the ride.


Your brand establishes identity and values through logos, colors, typography and icons. Giving your brand a signature personality results in a clear message that will help resonate with your customers and their goals.
