Our Team

  • Rocio Santillana

    Founder, Designer & Developer

    Rocio Santillana comes from a family of graphic designers. She grew up watching her uncle create product labels by hand on his drawing table, and this example kickstarted her fascination with the process of how an idea can turn into a finished product.

    Rocio began igniting her creative spirit by attending the oldest fine art school in the west coast, the San Francisco Art Institute, where she received a BFA. There she learned the art of composition, color usage, and the overall importance of being bold. Upon graduation she navigated the ins and outs of the design industry by starting as a junior designer for an ad agency in San Francisco; satisfying a clientele based mainly in print work.

    However, as the print industry has changed to a more digital base, Rocio shifted her focus toward web design and development; a new phase of design that she enthusiastically embraces. She has worked with Levi Strauss & Co., Dolby, Lindsey Creative, Dell & Netskope Events, eBay Enterprise, HDL Companies and CEO to CEO among others.

    As the founder of Artkade, Rocio is keen to provide customized service to her clients. She brings expertise in color management and image retouching for print related products. She recently moved Artkade’s headquarters to Austin, with plans for growing the business abroad.
