Senior Designer

About Us

Entrepreneurial spark. Insatiable curiosity. That’s what drives the team of public relations, advertising and public affairs specialists that makes up KGBTexas Communications. It’s in our DNA.

Our job is to create ideas that reach the people our clients want to connect with. Then move those ideas into action. We’re good at asking why, and even better at asking why not. That attitude has taken us far.

We’ve built a portfolio of Fortune 500 companies, start-ups and nonprofits. We’ve grown beyond San Antonio, and set up a second shop in Houston. We’ve made national headlines for local clients, branded San Antonio’s epic 300th birthday and passed a billion-dollar city bond. After 25 years, we’ve gotten pretty good at producing work that creates fans of brands and makes a difference in communities.

At our core, we’re a group of like-minded people who agree on a few simple but profound truths:

  • It’s more fun to be great than it is to be mediocre.
  • It’s better to outsmart the competition than to outspend them.
  • There is nothing more powerful than a compelling idea, persuasively expressed.
  • Integrity matters.
