Background

Mason spent his childhood in a small town in Texas where he collaborated on projects like building tree houses, rolling giant boulders down hills, building skate ramps and jumping bikes into creeks. He played varsity basketball in high school, drove a VW bug and worked as a cave tour guide for multiple years.

After graduating from the university, he spent seven years designing and art directing at an Austin ad agency where he executed projects ranging from logo design to art direction for full campaigns. At the agency, he learned valuable skills such as project management and small business marketing, as well as winning a few awards in the Austin industry.

In 2012, Mason went out on his own, establishing Hello Maseman as his full-time gig. His studio is a small 100 ft office located inside a screen printing shop in East Austin.

Outside of his personal work, design projects and commissions, he spends time with his wife Jessica Rose Clark and his two cats at home in East Austin.
