New York born.

A short Biography of Patrick Lugo

I’m an accomplished designer with well over a decade of creative problem solving experience. My formal education in art and design began prior to the apple computer’s revolution in digital desktop publishing. The result was traditional design and production training combined with a do-it-yourself ethos and an ongoing desire to learn while doing.

I’ve applied this drive to identifying strengths and untapped potential wherever I bring my attention. Organizations I’ve been employed by have opened departments or developed products as a result. This has also driven me to find projects and freelance clientele literally across the globe. I continue to seek new ways to apply my skills and aesthetic sensibility.
