The Drive To Create
Tony Canepa was raised in Colorado and has since called Las Vegas, Dallas, Seattle and Austin home. While traversing those different environments one thing was consistent, his drive to explore new creative outlets. Music, film and athletic activities were always present, but art and design took to the forefront and remain there today.
Over his time as a contributor to and manager of creative departments, Tony has provided content and branding for: a dozen AA and AAA Minor League baseball franchises; AHL and NAHL hockey teams; Mandalay Entertainment; Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF); Coors; Miller Lite; Budweiser: Dr Pepper: Museum of Glass; KeyBank; Propel Insurance; Franciscan Health System; State Farm; and Heritage Distilling.
Tony currently works as the Creative Director for the Tacoma Rainiers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, as well as working with select clients as a freelance illustrator and designer.
He has been a guest speaker at the University of Texas at Austin, University of Washington, Tacoma and is a member of the International Academy of Design and Technology-Seattle (IADT) advisory board providing feedback on graduation portfolios and course improvements.
In his free time, Tony is a collector of hobbies which include mixed martial arts, bass guitar, art, travel and tiki culture and cocktails.
