This was a huge honor for Cruz Ortiz. This collaboration with Absolut Vodka wouldn't have happened without the creative direction from our homies in Austin, GUERRILLA SUIT. Absolut Vodka chose Cruz Ortiz as the artist to represent the entire great state of TEXAS. The design is based on the cosmic connections Texas has, from rockets shooting into space out of Houston to the flickering and strange mystery lights in Marfa.
We were super excited to create the branding and marketing elements for the 2017 World Heritage Festival. This was a major undertaking that required a number of design elements including a logo, marketing collateral, posters, t-shirts, interactive passports, signage, social media, website design, and much more. We used cutting edge marketing tactics to promote this festival. We also designed the branding and marketing elements for the 2016 campaign as well.

Papa John’s has a strong national brand but wanted to increase sales in the Hispanic community using San Antonio as a trial market. We took their direction and put a uniquely San Anto spin on this iconic brand. We tied the city’s culture into each of our marketing initiatives including our love for the SPURS and FIESTA! We not only created pop up events but also designed interactive social media posts using our illustrations and custom hand lettering made specifically for Papa John’s. This project was in collaboration with KGB Texas.
We were super excited to work with Texas Monthly for their "Cook Like a Texan" event at the historic Pearl Brewery in San Antonio, Texas. We designed and produced the custom napkins, event posters, and other various deliverables. The night of the event we activated the space with live screen printing and pop up. Cruz Ortiz Art was also represented with a mobile art gallery and live painting by El Jefe -- Cruz Ortiz.
We were given the opportunity to redesign the event that has been historically referred to as the EPICENTER OF FIESTA! Fiesta De Los Reyes is a 10 day event that takes over La Villita and turns the middle of downtown San Anto into a nonstop party. By using the sun and moon throughout the festival, we highlighted the endless spirit of Fiesta. The crown is a visual reminder that this is the must go to event of the Fiesta season. FDLR is a culturally rich celebration featuring live performances and delicious cuisine. Party hard for a cause! We used cutting edge marketing tactics to promote this festival. It was truly an honor to be part of the Epicenter of Fiesta. VIVA FIESTA!!!
We designed the menu for the Esquire Tavern Downstairs in San Antonio, Texas.

Branding and Marketing super projects for San Antonio's hippest downtown development, THE PEARL BREWERY. One major project has been the Echale Latino Music Estyles outdoor concert series. Which brings in cutting edge Latino Musicians from all over the Americas. This project is apart of another amazing collaboration with PR powerhouse GIANT NOISE.
These folks are hilarious--- we love clients with crazy big ideas - so when someone asks us to make work that reflects SAN ANTONIO we immediately think mariachis and tacos - but we wanted to go beyond that hacienda - we think of san antonio as one of the great metropolitan epicenters of TEXAS - SAN ANTONIO is truly a city on the rise - so the design strategy was to create illustrations for progress and change - but in a very SAN ANTO way ----ITS GRITO TIME!!!!!!!!!!!
