In Development

Some Past Clientele

I’ve done award-winning work for these great past clients, and crafted campaigns for Sony Music, Bollé, Smirnoff’s, and more. I also have extensive B2B and non-profit experience, including campaigns for the financial, healthcare, and high-tech markets.


I’m Eric J. Trujillo. I love being creative and storytelling, so it’s no surprise that film production and animation are some of my biggest passions. Even as a young kid, I began practicing art and have been a proflific artist of various mediums since.

I entered the world of advertising and marketing shortly after college, founding two advertising agencies and more recently focusing on film.

As an Art Director, I specialize in character development, branding personalities, and lead illustration and 2-D animation. The clear distinction that gives me the edge is the years of experience I’ve had to learn many disciplines that relate to being a visual communicator, and effectively leading teams.

What’s a dream of mine? To produce full-length animated films.

I’m currently living out one of my dreams, living on the Mediterranean in Spain. I love sailing and enjoying good food and drink. I love traveling and work remotely or on-site, depending on the location.

You have done amazing work for Ethos Financial (A Barron Top 100 Firm) throughout many years… You are so talented at taking someone’s thought and developing it into a great marketing piece. And when a concept is needed, you deliver. Your unveiling is so you and clearly highlights the quality and creativity you bring to the table.

I hired Eric years ago to design my first collateral pieces. Since then, I’ve engaged him to do 2 websites, trade show materials, an elaborate coaching journal product and several client specific pieces. The end product is always terrific – creative, focused and very professional. We’ve even won a few Business Marketing Design awards along the way.
