ABOUT

HOLA. MY NAME IS OMAR ESQUIVIAS

I am a Graphic Designer residing in San Francisco, California.  At the age of fifteen, I immigrated from Mezcala, a small town located in the beautiful state of Jalisco, Mexico.  After high school, I attended the College of San Mateo from which I graduated in 2007 with an Associate's Degree in Graphics. I transferred to San Francisco State University where I studied Design and Industry; obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Visual Communication in 2010. In addition to freelancing, I have been working as the Lead Illustrator for ABS Learning Systems on their Money Management 4 Kids program since 2006.
