About

I’m Marco Rosales, a Graphic & Web Designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. My style ranges from Corporate, Hand-drawn Illustrations, to innovative Grunge layout and typography. I currently sell stock images at iStock, Shutterstock, and other top micro sites.

I was born in the Philippines and started drawing as early as 4 years old. Art has been my hobby ever since, creating my own superheroes, comics, to doodling in notebooks, and representing my school at design contests. It was then automatic that I would take an Art course in College. I was fortunate enough to be accepted in the country’s Premier University – The “University of the Philippines, Diliman”, and took up Visual Communication & Advertising. I was given a Juror’s Choice Award for my Thesis.

I moved to San Francisco after graduating, worked my way up, from retail jobs, until I landed my first design job in a couple of years. The experience then grew from Tech companies like: Pinnacle systems, Yellowpages.com, ePlay.com, until I finally decided to start my own design firm called “madebymarco”. I started my client base locally, through referrals and word of mouth in the Bay Area, until a it grew to different states in the US.

Outside Art, I’m a musician at heart. I’ve been playing drums since the age of 13, and have been with countless bands to date, winning a Battle of the Bands, Best Drummer award, and helped wrote a few hit songs. I also love meeting and connecting with people. So in 2007, I founded a music magazine community website, and successfully organized sold-out gigs in Downtown San Francisco.
