SNAKE HAWK PRESS is a competitive creative factory founded by Cruz Ortiz, an International Contemporary Artist based in San Antonio, Texas. We concentrate on graphic design, illustration, marketing and branding. Our targets are companies who value the growing Latino and Millennial market.
We are nestled in an old train station just south of downtown San Antonio. Our studio includes a fully operational fabrication shop, a print studio with screen printing presses and three classic vintage letterpress machines.
SNAKE HAWK PRESS presents a fresh perspective that offers clients the buckets of super cold beers at the backyard bar-b-que experience, but also the super slick hip foundation of contemporary design. We understand and contribute to the beat of today’s local and global design needs, which provides us a solid competitive edge to the typical design firm.
Cruz Ortiz is an International Contemporary Artist who uses print, painting, and public interactive works to address issues related to his experiences growing up in the bicultural landscape of Texas.
Cruz has had solo exhibitions at: ARTPACE in San Antonio, Texas; the CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM in Houston, Texas; and the University of Texas in Austin. He has been invited to participate in many major international exhibitions and institutions such as: the LOURVRE in Paris, France; EV-A in Limerick, Ireland; the traveling exhibition PHANTOM SIGHTINGS with the LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART; the SAN JUAN TRIENNIAL in San Juan, Puerto Rico; and at THE BLUE COAT MUSEUM in Liverpool, England.
