Rafael AvalosRafael Avalos
Art Director

Award-winning graphic designer with more than 18 years' experience in marketing and advertising including business to business, business to consumer, corporate communications, print and digital media. A stickler for detail, Rafael is never satisfied with his work and is constantly striving for perfection (wish him well). When not sitting in front of a computer, you'll probably find him at the local bookstore mooching off of the latest design publications and anime mangas (you may even catch him actually buying something).
