Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Abraham Garcia

Graphic Designer

Baltimore, MD, USA
My career in communications began over six years ago in Austin, Texas. Writing research papers by day and designing by night, I graduated from The University of Texas with a Biology degree and somehow also a portfolio of posters, flyers, and album artwork. I combined all of my interests through social marketing, using design for social and behavioral change.

My client list currently ranges from non-profit organizations to vulgar rap artist. The work is an odd mixture of good and grime–I like to call it life.

I currently live in Baltimore where I’m enrolled in the graphic design MFA program at MICA. I’m also currently not getting enough sleep.
