We would like to extend an enthusiastic welcome to our newest open submissions winner Rius. His design, Mixtape Meltdown, is gracing the Infectious catalog and flooding our eyes and hearts with a little bit of that 80’s nostalgia we all long for. This talented designer graduated high school with dreams of becoming a macho hospital janitor, when he found out that he lacked the muscles needed for the job, he settled for art school. We are certainly glad he did.
Based in the Philippines, Rius balances a successful career doing international design consulting while also maintaining a personal art practice. He is currently getting ready for a show opening in January with fellow artists and friends, Jaco Payawal, Mervin Malonzo and Renan Ortiz.
