Ricardo Bojorquez is an artist and graphic designer in Los Angeles. He was born in 1985. He earned a B.A. in English with an emphasis in Creative Fiction from Azusa Pacific University in 2008. Immediately after graduating he continued to work within the freelance circuit where his knowledge of design was applied across a wide range of disciplines from traditional print design, brand development, web design, interaction and research. Ricardo received his MFA in Media Design from the Grad Media Design program at the Art Center College of Design in 2012. In 2011, Ricardo was invited to the Werkplaats Typografie / ISIA workshop in Urbino, Italy, where he studied under the mentorship of Armand Mevis, Maureen Mooren, Leonardo Sonnoli and Karel Martens. He has worked on projects for Target, Kasthall, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design, UNICEF, Woodbury University, and Media Design Practices.
Project 1 of 5
This project is a study within "Feedback Occurrences," which explores the concept of object to object communication through simple means of technology and materials to give spaces and objects new meaning. Echo explores fluorescent light, height, and distance as a medium of communication between majestic objects.
Project 2 of 5
A series of posters for UCLA Architecture's Rumble event, which explores the concept of a system slowly destroying itself through the montage of bitmap graphics, mishap renderings, overlays and default layouts.

Project 3 of 5
A series of posters for Ingrid Hora & Daniel Soloman's project "Suspension of Disbelief." The following posters explored the concept of commodities as a form of fetishism, where designers tools can be seen as tools of worship, and then applied in a way to visually exploit this idea.
Project 4 of 5
These experiments are part of "Feedback Occurrences," where rockets are used to explore a more primitive form of communication between objects. These experiments rely on very simple measures of communication — pull, force, gravity, resistance, in order to achieve very complex results. The same way that light produces light, rockets produce movement and that becomes a platform of communication between the rockets and the objects.
Project 5 of 5
Defiant Alphabet is a graphical study of the letterform explored through the concept of the sublime, this moment in nature where beauty is marked by the power and destructive forces within.
