FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Since a young age Brian has always enjoyed identifying the shapes, colors and objects that we see in our everyday life. Many years later it has formed into his need to express his thoughts and creativity in different forms of artistic work. At the age of eighteen, frustrated with college's rhetoric lectures and uninspiring homework, Brian began combining his love for Northern California and design by launching a graphic t-shirt clothing company with a friend. With a business plan and financial backing established he educated himself with design, sourcing, manufacturing, sales and marketing. The company was later receiving requests for graphic design work and t-shirt manufacturing.
Established with a portfolio of work, Brian went back to college in 2016 at the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering at Arizona State University to study Graphic Information Technology and Marketing. Brian's degree combines design, usability, content creation, web development and marketing into one major.
It may seem backwards to have happy clients first and then college but Brian says this path has led him to the excitement of designing late into the nights, wanting to capture the perfect light with his camera and continuing to identify those shapes in the world around us.
Maria, also known as Lupita, also the wife of Brian, graduated from Sonoma State University with a degree in Business Administration specializing in Marketing. After college Lupita's natural talent of coordinating and organizing a business came to light while working at Fruta All Natural Ice Cream. Lupita is a great asset to our team with not only her amazing marketing ideas, but her experience in business administration, human resources and logistics.
With by far the best eye for aesthetic on our team she is always finding ways to make things look as high quality and on trend as possible so that our clients brands are as impactful as possible.
