Miguel A. Martinez
A native Houstonian who moved to Brooklyn for love and wonder, Miguel has worked for small branding studios, non-profits and start-ups across Texas and NYC, including Shelf Studio, the Clinton Global Initiative and Square Roots, an urban farming platform.
No matter the role, he loves to guide and mentor diverse groups of creatives. He is always eager to support and inspire others to use their individual talents and imagination in order to create work that’s beyond expectations. As an educator, his goal is to help foster the mindset that will allow his students to become strong designers.
Branding is Miguel’s passion and he loves the challenge that comes with creating the relationship between brand and customer. Over the years, he has gained expertise in creative/art direction, brand story development, brand positioning and voice, UX/UI, environmental and experiential design, packaging design, digital/print marketing materials, illustration and photography direction/execution.
