I love seeing how my graphic design work changes a company's image and propels them to achieve higher goals.

My graphic design background

My name is Pete Castillo, and I have 16 years experience as a graphic designer. I strive to create the most effective visual solution for every graphic design project I undertake. Professionally, my greatest joys come from seeing how my design contributions positively affect my clients' business and propels them to achieve higher goals.

I began my graphic design career in 1995, after graduating from the Art Institute of Houston. I've worked in advertising agencies, sign shops, newspapers and magazines, and I feel that I've cultivated a great amount of experience and have carved out a solid career for myself. I am currently employed full-time at Sanborn's Mexico Insurance, where my graphic design duties entail website design, logo design, graphic elements and travel publications; however, my schedule allows me to also accept freelance projects from time to time.
