One of the things we take the most pride in at Gallardo Labs is the talent and diversity of our team. As a truly digital agency, we exist in the digital space, which allows us to work with the best talent across the globe — literally.
From Miami to Los Angeles, Chicago to Bogota, and even Jordan, there’s a team member there, ready to create something you’ve never seen before. As they’re often shedding the proverbial spotlight on whichever product or brand they’re lending their talents to, we thought it was only appropriate to return the favor.
In this series, you’ll meet the people who make Gallardo Labs the digital branding agency we’re proud to call our virtual home.
Today’s spotlight falls on Daniel Gonzalez, a Senior Art Director & Illustrator living in Hallandale Beach.

Why do you choose to work at a digital agency? Since I was a little kid I was always interested in illustration, typography, magazines, and different forms of visual communication. With time, this interest became a passion for creating images that represent ideas and concepts. Nowadays the channels of communication have moved to the digital space; for this reason, working in a digital agency is a great opportunity for me to keep pursuing my passion and love but on a bigger scale, where I can create things that matter and are relevant.
“Gallardo Labs is different because it gives me the opportunity to do what I love.”– Daniel Gonzalez, Senior Art Director & Illustrator
What makes Gallardo Labs different? Gallardo Labs is different because it gives me the opportunity to do what I love and choose the type of work that I like, all while in my home, so at the end of the day, work feels like a hobby.
Favorite type of project to work on? I have an interest in different areas of design, from magazine layouts to web UI and UX. But what I like the most is branding and illustration. The part that I really love the most is the creative process of any type of project. Just the opportunity to solve a problem and create a concept, something new — that’s my favorite part of any project. The projects that I’m most proud of are the ones that I was able to take from an idea to a final product
