Born in Texas, Francisco lives and works in both New York City and San Francisco.
Having practiced architecture, furniture design, graphic design, and being an artist at heart, Francisco is inspired by many visual, cultural, and geographic perspectives.
His work makes use of clean design, bold color, and an "artist's sensibility." With a no-nonsense, direct approach, in which communicating an idea is essential, he gets the message across simply, elegantly, and powerfully.
Over the past 25 years, he has completed projects for clients such as the New York Times, Otto Tootsi Plohound, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the Latino Commission on AIDS, the Crime Victims Treatment Center, the UN Intellectual History Project, the Ralph Bunche Institute, and the Empire State Pride Agenda. He has worked with architects Sam Lopata and Kevin Walz. He currently teaches at the New York School of Interior Design.
