Ep. 042 – Cory Cote & Brandon Ramirez, Owners of Mystery Made




This week’s guest is Cory Cote and Brandon Ramirez, owners of Mystery Made mens apparel and action sport oriented graphic design firm in The Admiral District of West Seattle.

Highlights From This Episode:

After 10 years at K2 and Ride Snowboards, Brandon and shortly after, Cory decided to take the leap into self-employment to start their own design firm and then more recently, opened the front of their space into a men’s apparel shop. As artists and designers, they wanted to branch out from the cyclical nature of working at just one company and really explore the opportunities with starting their own thing.
  • Mystery Made primarily does branding and design for action sports but also love doing branding and design for local companies, new restaurants (like The Nook) and individual entrepreneurs.
  • One of their life mortars & slogan is “Get Busy Living”. They live by the saying of “find what your passionate about and you’ll never work again in your life”… it may be cliché but it’s true.
  • Best advice Cory remembers getting was from an old boss who told him to “Make a decision and be confident in it”. Own it and move forward!
  • Best advice Brandon lives by is to “put your passions in your backyard”. Pursue your passions and it will work out.
