At Crush Interactive, graphic design, art direction, and web design isn’t just what we do, it’s who we are. Crush’s founder, president, and creative director Gonzalo Montes de Oca was born in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, and raised in Miami, FL – the product of a hard-working family determined to make their American dream come alive in the land of opportunity. He understands what it means to work diligently, create opportunities and see them come to their profitable fruition.
Although he opened Crush Interactive in 2009, Gonzalo has been in the industry since 1997 – around the time when websites were still being built in tables and frames and a transparent GIF could make you look like a coding wizard. Boy Bands were still all the rage. Gonzalo’s extensive professional and creative experience has seen him work at agencies large and small as designer, lead artist, and art/creative director, do boatloads of freelance work for a multitude of divergent clients, and now as head of Crush. His experience also includes working with and for marketing companies, in teams large and small, and hand-in-glove with copywriters, marketers, advertisers, search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) experts, social media mavens, and C-level executives.
Crush Interactive has handled projects for Fortune 500 companies, publicly traded behemoths, sports franchises, Grammy-winning and platinum-selling entertainers, world-class artists, and 100s of local businesses. The partial client list includes: 7 Eleven, AT&T, AOL Latin America, Coca-Cola, Dell, Ford, Hertz, Invicta Watches, Jon Secada, MasterCard, Miami Dolphins, Mount Sinai Medical Centers, Nelly, Sony/Aiwa Latin America, Vivant Skin Care, Wizard Digital and many more.
