Peter Horjus enjoys creating original images every day whether working on a commercial logo, an editorial illustration or a fine art piece. He loves design and illustration because of its ability to tell a story better than words ever could. Whether his work inspires and entertains people or delivers a compelling visual message that serves your product, publication or company, he is grateful to use his design skills to achieve his client’s goals.

The Peter Horjus studio is an award-winning workshop based in Santa Barbara with top-notch creative services in graphic design, branding, illustration, fine art and art licensing. The studio’s portfolio spans the scope from Fortune 100 companies to small business, from top shelf national magazines and newspapers, to local publications.

Peter studied and taught graphic design at Point Loma College in San Diego and has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Art & Graphic Design. He continued on in Graduate work in graphic design at San Diego State University and studied Landscape Architecture at Cal Poly, plus had the privilege to serve as Chair of Communications AIGA/SD. He enjoys good friends, mentoring design and illustration students, coffee shops, talking shop, laughing, reading, running, the ocean, fishing, vintage typography ephemera, and old Land Rovers. 

Peter’s inspiration varies, from fashion found at art openings to objects found at hardware stores, but what he loves most of all is meeting new clients and coming up with innovative solutions to their design challenges.
