Emilio brings a distinct insider/outsider perspective to his design work at Offset.
For the past seven years, he has specialized in brand development and packaging for the wine and spirits industries both domestically and internationally. Emilio spent his formative years at Auston Design in Emeryville, CA, focused on wine and spirits projects that ranged from small family-owned brands to larger entities such as Constellation and Diageo.
After his stint at Auston Design, he was offered a design position at Co-Partnership, a boutique branding and packaging studio in Sydney, Australia. The international move allowed him to broaden his skill set and immerse himself in the Australian, New Zealand, and Asian wine and spirits industries. During his time in Australia, he had the opportunity to work for Landor Associates (the world’s largest brand agency) and other Sydney-based boutique agencies. After living abroad, he returned home to the Bay Area and briefly ventured outside the wine and spirits industry, working for Olio Studio, Kimpton Hotel Group, and in-house for Method cleaning products.
At Offset, Emilio takes pride in our ethos of not having a studio style and doing what is strategically appropriate for each project.
Outside of design, he loves to explore color and pattern through his paintings and large-scale murals. Emilio has been with Offset for 3 years.
