Ringling College Patricia Thompson Gallery Presents Pedro Pérez
Selection of work on display through October 21
Sarasota, FL – Opening June 10, the Ringling College of Art and Design Patricia Thompson Gallery will host the work of alumnus Pedro Pérez, Class of 1996. This multi-media exhibition will include design work from his various advertising campaigns and present several projects he has completed over the course of his professional career.
An exploration of the creative process, this exhibition will lead the viewer through the behind the scenes decision-making and experimentation of advertising, culminating in several polished, completed campaigns that demonstrate the result of this foundational work.
Pérez is a founding partner of Nuevo Advertising Group and an adjunct professor of Global Brand Strategies at Ringling College. He founded his first company, Merging Point Design, Inc., with fellow students while they were attending Ringling College. This first venture specialized in custom website design and development and quickly landed some impressive local and national clients such as Sarasota’s own Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Lee Wetherington Homes, and Stardust Casino and Boyd Gaming in Las Vegas, Nevada. Merging Point focused on the front-end beauty and functionality of websites as well as the back-end management systems.
