Very nice to meet you! My name is Frank Vallejo III and I am art director/graphic designer in both digital and print. My previous role at Hawkeye Agency ( was as an art director where I had been for just over 5 years. My key role was in developing high level concepts, design and production for a variety of projects. My primary clients were the San Diego Zoo and Wildlife Association, NRG (A Texas Energy Company), GIA (Gemological Institute of America Inc.), Google, Brookdale Assisted Living, USAA and Sparkling Ice. If you’d like to see examples of what I have done my online portfolio can be found at

I grew up in Garden Grove, CA and attended Mater Dei High School. I received my bachelor’s in graphic design from California State University, Long Beach. I moved to San Diego in December 2017 from the San Francisco Bay Area. Before that I lived in Chicago for 17 years. I am very happy to be back home. I am also extremely excited to be part of the HDSI team and look forward to meeting all of you!
