Ricardo teaches Digital Design
After arriving in Houston from Miami (and Venezuela before that), it took just a few years for Ricardo Romero to make his mark on the Advertising and Marketing industry in Houston. He started out as a Graphic Designer for a small shop, then Six Foot Studios snatched him up to work on the AT&T and Disney accounts. He then headed to Astadia to be one of the lead Art Directors on the HP Account.
He’s now Sr. Digital Art Director at Lopez Negrete Communications, where he’s racked up more awards and international accolades than all the rest of us combined. But it’s not awards Ricardo is after—his passion lies in sharing his knowledge and love for great design. Ricardo is one of those rare and gifted Art Directors who always offers fresh design thinking and a unique flair that few Designers have.
Throughout his highly awarded career, Ricardo has worked with a long list of stellar brands: HP, AT&T, Bombardier, Verizon, HBO, Sony Pictures, Azteca Milling, Disney, among others.
Ricardo is very active in the local Advertising and Marketing communities, loves to DJ, and travel the world, like almost every weekend. When he’s not gallivanting across the globe or carrying home creative awards, you’ll find Ricardo whipping up gourmet meals and looking after his pet blue lobster, Bob. Seriously, he has a blue lobster.
