About // Me

“You've taken your first step into a larger world.”

My name is Arturo Cortez and I'm a Graphic and Web Designer based out of Southern California. I have been designing for at least a decade now with years of experience working with various clients and businesses. My skills range from digital to print and even video and animation. I have won 5 awards and have gained recognition for my work and am very honored by it. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree from CSU Channel Islands and I've learned from the best teachers and best instructors out there. Since then, I've been working with clients to create groundbreaking designs and help businesses get discovered.

Services // Offered


Not sure what you want your product or business to look like yet? I can help you create conceptual designs to help you get the ball rollin'. Whether it be websites, logos, packaging etc. I can get the fire started to help you bring your ideas to life with digital or physical mockups.


My favorite part! After finding out the direction and target audience, we get to work. I strive to make my clients feel satisfied and I always put high-quality work into my designs and make sure every pixel hits it's mark. I have experience with working on everything from print to digital.

Branding & Identity

More than anything a business needs an identity. Having a brand or an identity helps people remember your business or product. Design goes a long way in this and unfortunately businesses that don't have an identity don't stand out very much and are seldom remembered.

Print Design

I have vast experience in print design and can help you create an invitation for a loved ones wedding, a flyer for your next birthday party or even a poster for that film you've been working on. Print is far from being dead and is still one of the best ways to advertise.

Package Design

Wouldn't just love for everyone to try that new product you just created? Package design will help your product stand out from the shelves. Don't settle for generic packaging that is just going to be over-looked as if it didn't exist. I can make your product look like the only one there!

Web Concept Design

If you're looking to start a website for yourself or small business I can help you conceptualize your vision and even design it for you. Taking the first steps to starting your website are big ones and I will make sure you are 100% satisfied and ready to jump into the endless world of the internet.

Front-End Development

Front-end developing is the actual coding part of designing a website. This is where the action happens and I sit down and code your website for hours. It's a lot funner than it sounds, believe me. I make sure that all my clients' websites work across multiple browsers and work perfectly.

Search Engine Optimization

Having good SEO can really increase the traffic you want on your website. It can double or even triple your web visitors to help increase sales through your ecommerce site and increase your search ranking through Google, Bing, Yahoo and many other search engines.

Motion Graphics

If you're working on a non-stop action sci-fi flick, I'm your man! Visual Effects has been one of my favorite hobbies for a long time now. Laser shots, explosions, lights and gunfire can really add that BOOM! to your film to make it possibly the next Star Wars.
