Twenty Years of HMG: Our Timeline

Twenty Years of Building Better Brands

It’s HMG Creative’s 20th Anniversary and we’re celebrating with cupcakes, ping pong, and a look back at the last two decades. With so many changes in the industry and our company since we started way back in 2003, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the world as we know it and forget exactly where we came from. After all, we’ve changed a lot since ’03! Our happy hours consist of Miller Lite instead of Smirnoff Ice, we work out of an amazing office rather than an apartment, and our team has grown from an army of one to a family of senior-level designers and marketers. Although we’ve evolved over the past 20 years, our guiding principles have stayed the same. We are good stewards of our clients and community, we find purpose in everything we do, we navigate growth with grace, hold ourselves accountable, and always remain authentic. Witness where these principles have taken us through our 20-year timeline below!


Welcome Our New Senior Visual Designer, Chris Cortez!

We asked Chris to tell us about himself

I am a Texas native through and through! I grew up and spent most of my life in sunny Corpus Christi, but in 2015 I was itching for a change of scenery and relocated to Austin. My design career kick-started during an internship way back in 2011, where I was thrown into the deep end and got my hands dirty working on everything from print to digital to broadcast media. I must’ve done something right because they ended up offering me a full-time position, and the rest is history!
