Chowning J. Aguilera
Dallas joined JS as an intern in 2016 and was quickly scooped up as a full-time graphic designer for our creative team. Project managers come to him for digital and social graphics, as well as print designs. His clients include Chick-fil-A, Orkin, Delta and Coca-Cola, among others. Prior to joining the agency, Dallas earned his BFA from the University of West Georgia (UWG), where he concentrated in graphic design and minored in marketing.
During his time in college, Dallas interned on campus, most notably with the UWG Recreation Department, developing promotional materials for rec events sponsored by the university. His work was accepted to a number of juried exhibitions and he was recognized in Graphis Magazine’s annual New Talent competition.
His artwork isn’t limited to one medium. The creative gene runs rampant on his family tree, and he’s been encouraged almost since birth to dabble in it all. He enjoys portraiture, painting, photography and relief wood block printmaking. And, one day, he hopes to illustrate a storybook. Dallas also spends much of his spare time making music—strumming his guitar or writing folk songs in his house, which is dotted with sticky notes scrawled with lyrics.
The Norcross native is also an outdoor enthusiast who finds his muse in nature. On weekends you might spot him hiking in north Georgia, strolling through Piedmont Park or kayaking the Chattahoochee.
Dallas is a member of the Atlanta chapter of the American Institute for Graphic Arts. In the future he sees himself focusing on developing brand identities and conceptualizing ad campaigns, while also volunteering at national parks. He recently proposed to his high school sweetheart after a six-and-a-half-year courtship, so tying the knot is on the short-term bucket list.
