Crispin Porter Bogusky
Juan Perez, a Southern California native, initially studied as an painter/illustrator and then ultimately graduated as a designer from Otis/Parsons. He spent the initial years of his career as an award winning Graphic Designer developing corporate identity systems and collateral for entertainment and automotive brands and then transitioned into advertising. His early years as an Art Director were spent working and freelancing in Los Angeles at agencies like Chiat Day, Saatchi & Saatchi and Foote Cone & Belding. After cutting his teeth in L.A., his career continued at agencies outside of California like GSD&M in Austin, BBDO in Chicago and most recently as Creative Director at Crispin Porter Bogusky in Miami.
Juan has won various awards for work on a wide range of Fortune 500 brands, and he enjoys working on categories spanning everything from Spirits, Confections, to High-End Automotive, including Life Savers, Nissan, Beam and Pennzoil, but what truly inspires him to get up in the morning, is the joyful pursuit of the singularly unique and at times elusive but always worth it “Aha!” creative moment.
