Often, the best business ideas are those that satisfy an unanswered need. For designers Sergio Max Legon-Talamoni and Sonia-Lynn Abenojar, the sense that their community was missing a much-needed resource was the impetus for launching their Seattle-based design practice, La Union Studio. Noticing a lack of BIPOC designers who could serve the many minority- and immigrant-owned businesses in the region, Legon-Talamoni and Abenojar decided to take the leap and launch their own practice. Centered on cultural placemaking, the duo has built a small but mighty portfolio, with several more projects on the boards.

What clients are saying about us

Sergio and Sonia are a perfect balance of accessible and professional, of community-based and institutionally-connected. They can help bridge the often totally disparate worlds of small business and commercial development. Their design solutions to complicated problems are intuitive and straightforward.

What clients are saying about us

La Union Studio has helped us connect with people from the community that we were not in connection with before this project, which allowed more people to know Chebogz's story and legacy. They also have your back when issues rise and they do it in a way that doesn't scare the clients. They care!

With Sergio and Sonia, you get two people who are insanely intelligent, incredibly creative, but also really patient. I really appreciate their ability to stick to a timeline, to meet deadlines, to continue to push and to reach a vision.
