Mark Peñacerrada


Hello! My name is Mark Peñacerrada, a multi-disciplinary Graphic Designer with a demonstrated history of delivering creative solutions across brand identity, print, web, email marketing, and digital media. I bring together ideas, concepts, and design to create engaging brand campaigns that drive impactful results. I’m in search of new and exciting opportunities to develop and design effective brand experiences.

I started dabbling in design work independently back in 2001, creating posters, flyers and business cards for friends and really anyone in need. However, it wasn't until I went to my first design show that I realized I wanted to pursue Graphic Design as a career. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Visual Communication Design from San Francisco State University and never looked back.

Outside of the design world, I can be found looking for good eats or enjoying time well spent with family and loved ones.
