Illicit Graphics

Illicit Graphics is a media production company created by me, Alex Rodriguez, to showcase my freelance work. I have successfully worked for FOX Sports for just over 7 years while also freelancing for other networks such as DIRECTV and LATV. My greatest strength is my overall knowledge of the media production business from editing, production and media management. My area of expertise is motion graphics design, but having learned traditional arts, I believe computers and their programs are just another tool for creativity. I have made it my priority to keep up to date with the latest tools in this ever changing business. My passions for design will make any project you have stand out. Please take a look at my portfolio, feel free to ask questions, and don't hesitate to contact me.

I've worked in sports graphics for a great part of my broadcast carrer, however, the extent of my knowledge goes beyond that. My foundation is made up of traditional art skills such as drawing, painting, sculpting and photography. Before I started working consistently in broadcast I worked at a large format print shop where I learned about composition, copyright and color reproduction. My main work tools are After Effects, Photoshop, Premiere, Speedgrade many of the other programs in the Adobe Creative Cloud. In the time I have spent at FOX Sports I also learned VIZRT and Cinema 4D. While working on independent films, Zbrush is the latest program I have mastered. If you have specific software you need me to work with, feel free to contact me with your specific project's requirements. Thank you.

He has delivered numerous graphic compositions and created an arsenal of 3d elements that have taken the channels look to a new level.
