Brian Raszka has joined the Estipona Group as Senior Art Director – again! Brian first worked with the agency from 2004-2009 until the local economy imploded and the agency was forced to downsize. Brian brings his incredible talents back to the agency and an expanded creative team where he helps develop strategy-based marketing communications for a variety of Estipona Group clients.
“It’s great to be coming back to the Estipona Group,” says Raszka. “These are a talented and experienced bunch of people and I am looking forward to working with them and learning from them.”
Originally from Connecticut, Brian earned his BFA from the University of Connecticut, began his design career, then spent a year traveling the world. He settled on the West coast and built a successful graphic design and illustration business, first on his own then for various marketing agencies. His client list has included Bayer, Jello, Capital One, Intel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hometown Health, Boys & Girls Club of the Truckee Meadows, and Nevada Department of Wildlife, as well as a variety of clients in the healthcare, gaming, entertainment, higher education and technology sectors.
Equally comfortable designing with a pencil, paintbrush or computer mouse, Raszka is also an avid photographer and painter. His award chest is full including regional and national ADDYs, Print’s Regional Design Annual, 3×3 Magazine’s 6th Annual Pro Show Select, American Illustration: 27 +28, Society Of Illustrators of Los Angeles-Illustration West 35 and 45 and San Francisco Society of Illustrators. His artwork has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, Bon Appetit and National Public Radio’s calendar.
“I am just delighted to have Brian back on our team,” says Estipona Group Creative Director Paige Galeoto, “He brings a very hard to find combination of truly strategic thinking and just kick-ass artistic skill. He’s a big thinker who can draw!”
For more than 20 years, the Estipona Group Advertising and Public Relations team has been providing marketing communications that arrest, engage and deliver results to local, regional and national clients based throughout the United States.
