I wanted to take a few lines to thank Ernesto Gonzalez for supporting the SUWC. Last fall, he helped us explore options for an updated logo. While the Board of Directors opted to stick with tradition, Ernesto generated a great range of logos for SUWC. And he also gave us a fresh look for the Redbook cover art. As such, I wanted to give Ernesto our highest recommendation for graphic design work—so keep him in mind if your organization is in need. Work samples shown here: Project 1, Project 2.

Ernesto’s sister is an administrative associate at the School of Medicine. When she learned about the SUWC pro bono project, she told us about her brother.

About Ernesto…he was born in San Francisco and raised in the East Bay. He currently attends the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he is studying Graphic Design. Ernesto’s love of art started at an early age, around 11. His interest in graphic design blossomed in high school through a class on “Commercial Art” which uses art mainly for advertising purposes. One of Ernesto’s favorite graphic artists is M.C. Escher who is known for his mathematically inspired woodcuts and lithographs. Ernesto likes to incorporate geometry into his art using large, bold typography designs. His interests, apart from art, include sports, running, and exploring new places. He also loves the city of San Francisco. Its urban environment, with its natural beauty and diversity is a huge inspiration to his art. Ernesto will be receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University in the summer of 2013.
