Anton Medalla, Entrepreneur

Drawing inspiration from people, culture, nature, sports, experiences, and spaces, Anton Medalla has always been passionate about design. His businesses: a.kin (an artisan eyewear brand), Off Course (a contemporary golf apparel label), and Medavis Builders (an innovative construction company) are all testaments to it.

Since starting a family and raising his new-born daughter, Anton and his wife has traded night outs for early mornings with family and friends. Working from home gave them the opportunity to design a rich lifestyle with a healthy balance of work and family dynamics.


What do you love about being an entrepreneur? How do you express your creativity through your businesses?

What I love about being an entrepreneur is the autonomy and freedom to pursue businesses akin to the things I am into. It also gives me the opportunity to purvey ideas and express creativity through branding, products, and service.

How does design shape your perspective on business and life? Where do you draw inspiration for all your design pursuits?

I have always been passionate about design, the intricate details, the way things come together, and the feeling it gives people. In a way, it has made me more observant and detail-oriented, which has become part of who I am and what I do. Design is everywhere, and always comes out where we choose to look. I personally draw inspiration from people (friends, family, artists, etc.) different cultures, nature, sports, experiences, and spaces to name a few.

What does a typical workday look like for you? What’s the best part of your everyday routine?

A typical work day is waking up (normally caring for my daughter), freshening up, making a cup of coffee, meditating, and then I start with work. For our retail business, apart from research, planning, and conceptualizing, the everyday work is normally comprised of checking our website, sorting orders, booking deliveries, and packing and dispatching product orders. We also check our brand’s socials to monitor our reach and impact, as well as create new content for marketing and brand awareness. On the days I schedule my workout, I normally leave for the gym around 12 pm and get back to the grind by 2 pm. The best parts of my day are the moments in between—the first sip of coffee, the walk to my car after a good workout, and the mini breaks where I get to spend time with my daughter.

How has starting a family changed your lifestyle? As a new dad, how do you balance your work and family dynamics?

Since we had our daughter we traded most of our nightlife for earlier mornings, meals/playdates with family, friends, and their kids, and other activities centered around our daughter. As both my wife and I work from home, we are able to fix our schedules in a way that complements each other and our responsibilities as parents. This is one of the best perks of being able to work from home, we get to spend more time with our daughter.

What’s your favorite after-work activity? How do you unwind after a busy work week?

My favorite after-work activity is spending time with my daughter, conversing with my wife, or putting on a show or a movie to unwind.

What does being “On the Move” mean for you?

On the Move” for me is motion in a state of flow. It’s doing what I need to do every day for the different roles I play and the responsibilities that come with it. It is purposeful action for progression.

What does your everyday wardrobe look like? And what was your favorite look from the “Rustan’s Man On the Move” shoot?

My everyday wardrobe is composed of pieces that are functional and comfortable—mostly with a minimal aesthetic. My favorite look from the shoot would have to be the Tailor Vintage Airotec shirt, paired with the khaki shorts, American Trench socks, and Satorisan trainers. Each piece is pure quality and the outfit as a whole was incredibly comfortable, stylish, and versatile.
