Genaro Design understood what our organization's need was. From our initial communication, to concept, incredible design and then launch—we have been beyond pleased with the quality work and attention to detail this firm has done and continues to do!
I have worked with Genaro for many years on several projects, some small startups and other larger, more sophisticated companies. I find he brings a strong bi-cultural mindset to his creativity that makes his artwork stand out in a very unusual way. If your idea is to have a design that gets you noticed ... Genaro Design is your branding agency!
I have worked with Genaro Design on various projects and have always been incredibly impressed. For the McNay, they created outstanding branding for two great events . . . They understand clients’ needs and translate them into sophisticated, powerful, and memorable design that is used to deliver cohesive messaging across platforms.
Genaro Design team is brilliant in the arena of brand representation and brand management. Their ability to probe into the strategy of a business and how it desires to represent itself combined with their creative mind and their mastery of graphic design and brand elements make them one of the best in the business.
I have had the pleasure of working with Genaro Design. I cannot say but compliments of professionalism and good work. The rebranding they did for our company is not only amazing but has received an honorable mention at the Graphis Design Annual 2020 competition. I recommend Genaro if you want to take your company branding to the next level.

Genaro Solis Rivero is a Mexican graphic designer and design educator teaching Communication Design in the School of Art and Design at Texas State University—San Marcos since Fall of 2018. He began his career as a graphic designer at Equilibrio in Mexico City and cofounded Contrasto Group, a graphic design studio that specialized in editorial design and branding. After Genaro received his M.F.A. degree from Texas State in 2012, he opened Genaro Design, a boutique branding agency in San Antonio, Texas.
Genaro strongly believes in giving back to the community; hence, he has utilized his expertise in graphic design to support several cause-based NPOs throughout the years. His philanthropist spirit began with his active involvement with the Shriners Hospitals for Children in the late 90s. In 2017, Genaro undertook the Classical Music Institute rebrand as a pro-bono work and this relationship led him to serve as Chair of the Marketing Committee of the CMI Board of Directors. He continues to use his resources to design their collateral materials and maintain their website.
Genaro’s communication design has been recognized by national and international industry leading organizations and publications, which include: The American Advertising Federation, Art Directors Club of Houston, Creative Summit, Dallas Society of Visual Communications, Good50x70, Graphis Press, and Logolounge.
Teaching what I love and loving what I teach, is how Genaro describes his new passion for design education. He loves a good glass of wine, is a foodie—and espresso is a must. He is fan of the Dallas Cowboys; although, his passion for horses influenced his inclination for the Denver Broncos when he was a child. He is a member of Community Bible Church and enjoys Christian contemporary music. He is married and his two boys keep him busy when he is not teaching or designing.
