Duke de Castro
About this pro
My band, Madison Grove, came to Duke to help design our very first album cover. All we had going into the project was an amateur sketch and a vision for what we wanted the art to look like. What we received was an album cover that I could only describe as "iconic". What he imaged out of our initial concept is miles ahead of anything we could of come up with ourselves. His perception and realization of our sound, style, and ambition brought to life this incredible piece of art that not only accurately represents our music, but also his own personal style. I cannot stress enough how frustrating designing this album cover was until coming into contact with Duke. He is kind, humble, and rocks the hell out of a kimono. 10/10 would use his services again.Mar 27, 2018
For the past six years, I have worked on many creative projects with Duke ranging from logos, flyers and program designs. Duke has an exceptional eye and most importantly, he is open and positive about collaboration. He is diligent and professional, creative and engaging. I love working with Duke and I highly recommend his services for others.Mar 26, 2018
Duke has gone above and beyond with every project we’ve done together. He has the ability to contextualize words and ideas into graphics that fit perfectly. I highly recommend his services.Mar 25, 2018
Duke was excellent! I needed a logo but didn’t have much for him to work with, but he provided an amazing logo and included multiple copies in different formats and styles which have proven to be super useful. The price was right and he was super responsive. I plan to continue to use Duke for all my creative needs.Mar 22, 2018
I have worked with duke for over three years and can say without a doubt he is the best of the best. His work is creative and fresh, and he is incredibly adaptable to the needs of each different project with a thoughtful, unique approach.Mar 22, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing varies on the project, but I usually charge by a per project basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Initially, I like to hear their vision of what it is they want to create, and what message they would like to get across. Then I will try my best to create what it is they had in mind. Through a few back and forth interactions, I hope to have a quality piece that they are highly satisfied with.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Since 2010, I have been attending different colleges and trade schools. In 2012, I graduated from the Los Angeles Film School for Computer Animation. There I learned how to use Photoshop, among other programs used for creating 3D media, etc. I continued my studies at the Laguna College of Art + Design, where i learned more extensively, the intricacies of graphic design, 3D art, and art in general. Coming from this background, I am not only proficient in Graphic Design, but I can also accommodate other types of works such as 3D models and Photoshop illustrations.
