Jason A. Pires & Marioly M. Molina
MVC AGENCY FOUNDERS
Founded in 1998 by then designer Jason Pires, MVC was originally called Modern Visual Communication. Jason Pires’ original vision was based on creating a business that would allow him to fully express his creative talents and vision. Starting as a multi-media design firm MVC was built to unbound by medium, and to use the full force of technology to creative modern, truly relevant and progressive work across any platform.
Jason A. Pires
FOUNDER, CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Jason Pires was born in Texas to a Brazilian father and Spanish/Italian mother. He spent much of his childhood in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, before moving to Dallas and subsequently to California. Not quite Brazilian and not quite American, Jason is innately unique. Without a defined place, Jason has embraced his individuality and allowed it to fuel his creative side. He attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he focused on design and multimedia, along with studying a multitude of other creative areas including music, theatre, photography and film.
Jason began a career in design and photography, but as his clientele expanded, along with their requests, he realized his passions and talents were much broader and multi-faceted. MVC was born out of the need to meet his clients’ demands and his desire for a career that could grant him creative freedom across multiple platforms.
Jason’s proud lineage and imaginative spirit have propelled MVC’s success since the beginning. His cross-cultural heritage provides MVC with a globalized perspective and helped expand his client base into the Spanish speaking market. He’s been responsible for the creation or revitalization of many notable brands, including Diesel, Universal Music, Youngblood, and Emani.
A dedicated husband and father, Jason spends his spare time with his wife – MVC’s co-founder and art director, Marioly Molina, and their two beautiful children. He is actively involved in his community and coaches his son’s soccer team.
