Adam LaVail: Lead Designer

> Back To Articles

Adam’s a bit of a know-it-all. Skipping grades in secondary school, studying the classics in college when most people were still wondering who to ask to prom. He won first prize at the state fair for a watercolor painting and used the money to buy his first electric guitar. Three years later he was playing that guitar on live television, radio and even on stage at the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas. At an age when many are finishing their first internships, Adam was managing multi-million dollar construction projects. In 2000, he jumped out of his successful contracting career to be more involved in design, bought a tangerine iMac and founded Meridiansix out of his living room.

Adam kept his nose to the grindstone and worked hard to grow Meridiansix from a concept into the second largest web design company in New Mexico. After the 2008 market crash, he hunkered in the bunker and survived, and so did the clients he represented. The market wasn’t driven by luxury and indulgence anymore, things had become more fundamental, more “value-centric.” He embraced these shifts and aligned to new expectations.

15 years since he founded our company, Adam has become a seasoned veteran. He works fast, he works smart. He’s aware of trends and is experienced enough to avoid folly. A natural problem solver, Adam isn’t interested in creating large invoices, he’s interested in giving his clients great value and sustaining long term relationships.

Adam’s one of those people who doesn’t talk too much, but when he speaks, he sure thinks it’s profound. If he wasn’t correct most of the time, we’d ask him not to speak at all.
