Graphic Designer, Art Director, Illustrator, Painter, Cartoonist, Thinker and Creative Mind
I believe in creating work that is both aesthetically pleasing and strategically sound, and of course, will get your business growing. I am currently working for my own business, SozaDesigns, based in Dallas, Texas. Before striking out on my own, I was part of the creative team at Javelin, a direct marketing agency based in Irving, Texas. I was the Senior Art Director for more then five years. Prior to my experience at Javelin, I worked at Rapp Collins (Rapp) as an Art Director. At both agencies my role was to create strategically sound direct marketing campaigns, from the concept stage to production, for both print and online experiences.
I have more than 15 years experience in the graphic design and art direction fields. I have worked on a long list of projects ranging from logos, posters, website, emails, marketing brochures, sales-sheets, packaging, point-of-purchase displays, direct mail, advertisements, complete branding identity packages, as well as promotional marketing. One of my latest endeavors has been creating and managing the brand identity for The Behavior Exchange. I have worked on all aspects of the marketing efforts, from the logo to the website, as well as creating on site inspirational posters and even some fun buttons. I’ve also created Buddy The Bee character. A whimsical and fun spoke-person/bee.
Besides working with a myriad of small businesses, I have also created and art directed marketing materials for a large list of clients, some of them Fortune 500 companies. The list includes:
• Adobe Software
• Sony Playstation
• Tecate Beers
• DELL computers
• Javelin Direct
• Habitat for Humanity
• Benchmark Bank
• Dallas Cowboys
I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, 1997 . I was born and raised in Managua, Nicaragua. I’m fluent in English and Spanish. If you would like to view a sample of my work or portfolio, please go to my portfolio page.
