VP of Design / Art Director
Loyal, talented, and sincere, Juan has an incredible ability to dig deep and bring brands to life, often uncovering bold new personalities for traditional clients. An innovator who blends an out-of-the-box approach with a keen attention to detail, Juan is dedicated to delivering impactful brand imagery that exceeds expectations while leading the entire team to find the best in themselves and their work.
Juan’s love of visuals goes beyond the computer screen. He has long made the local movie theater his second home (maybe even first?). For Juan, there’s nothing like the magic of an old-fashioned cinema, whether it’s the oversized screen, the immersive surround sound, cheering with a crowd…or the popcorn!
And when Juan’s looking for inspiration, he hits the road, tosses out his itinerary, and #juanders into spur-of-the-moment adventures. He’s chased amazing local cuisine across 17 countries and counting.

Peanut butter on top or bottom slice?
Bottom. Give me the jelly first!
What are you grateful for?
My mom’s roast pork, chicken nuggets, and friends and family who see my value.
What’s your Red Thinking highlight?
I’m proud of the work we’ve done on Middleburg and Watermark/Wren/Perch Putt because it’s creating a lasting look for communities I live, work, and play in.
