WE'RE APSARA

Creating is not always creative. More often than not, effectively conveying information to your clients, staff, and prospects can be a problem. We’re here to provide creative solutions to these problems with professional design.

Apsara is a creative studio that uses design to help your company surpass competition by increasing your brand’s perceived value—which results in a premium return for your products and services.

Design is more than decoration. Design helps draw attention, clarify data, and communicate complex ideas. Design interprets your information by using proven aesthetic techniques like symbolism, balance, contrast, color theory, typography, order, uniformity, and data hierarchy.

SERVICES

We’re a full-service creative studio. We provide a wide range of professional services for the entire scope of your project. From concept to creation, all the way to distribution, we’re here to help your business grow.

TEAM

Apsara’s two principals, Adam Ross and Joe Velasquez, each have over 12 years of experience in graphic design working for a large range of companies and clients.

ADAM ROSS

Partner & Creative Director

Adam entered the design industry in 1999 with several freelance jobs in website and logo design. He received a BFA in Graphic Design before working at a design studio in Virginia, followed by a senior design position for the federal government, and continues to expand his professional experience with Apsara. His extensive travel abroad is a major influence on his creative process and culinary preferences. He especially enjoys eating falafel in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC and dreams of a restaurant that successfully combines Indian and Mexican food.

JOE VELASQUEZ

Partner & Creative Director

Originally from Mexico, Joe grew up in Texas for the first 19 years of his life. He then moved to the DC area where he attended every other university in town. It was then that he discovered that computer science and medicine was not where he belonged; he eventually received a BFA in Graphic Design. Joe has worked for the federal government, waiting tables, design firms and as a freelance designer. An avid photographer and mixed media painter, Joe’s main passions are art, food, travel, and criticizing terribly-designed ads in DC Metro trains.
