Tony is an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) and the country’s first and only Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) in Illustrator (CS6 and CC).
He took up Electrical Engineering at Mapua Institute of Technology, and never thought he would end up as a graphic designer. After leaving college, he decided to explore his artistic skills and worked as an artist for a garments factory, designing shirt graphics. He has never looked back, and has been a designer for the last 20 years.
Tony has worked as a freelance consultant/designer for FMI, Bozell, Basic FCB, Campaigns and Grey, and Leo Burnett; and as a full-time designer for PixelMagic and Gimenez Group. He has art-directed photo shoots for BPI and Equitable, and is an experimental photographer in his own right. Tony is also lead vocalist for the indie band X2M.
