Cylvia Santillan is president of C. Santillan, Inc., an advertising and design firm dedicated to meeting clients’ objectives with fresh and original advertising through effective messaging and design. In 1996 she began teaming with corporations and small- to midsized businesses to provide communication materials for various marketing needs.

Prior to starting C. Santillan, Inc. in 1996, Cylvia was the Los Angeles Times Creative Director managing an in-house advertising agency staff of 49 employees leading development of all Promotion Department projects for Consumer, Display and Classified collateral sales materials and internal communications. She also managed the print, radio, print production, photography and multi-media departments, as well as freelance creatives and support design studios.

She understands the need to keep her creative approach fresh–having studied with the great graphic designers of our generation–Milton Glaser in New York City through the School of Visual Arts and Neville Brody in London through the Yale Institute Summer Program. These influences and others have contributed to shaping her creative approach to conceptualizing fresh and original ideas when meeting client objectives.
