de la Riva Brands is a creative studio specializing in branding and web design for new brands, rebrands & startups.
Founder Tony de la Riva is an independent art director and multi-disciplinary designer who combines strategy, creativity, technical expertise, fanatical attention to detail, and a sharp understanding of marketing principles and tactics to provide exceptional creative solutions that are accurate, excellent, and right the first time.
Tony has been designing for over 15 years and has a degree in visual communication. In January of 2017, he left an award-winning agency in San Luis Obispo, CA to establish de la Riva Brands. Today, Tony oversees a small team of talented creatives and leverages partnerships with industry professionals to provide businesses, nonprofits, and organizations of all types with first-in-class communications and design. However, he enjoys doing most of the work himself—from strategy to execution, from development to design, from copy writing to the occasional photo shoot.
Originally from Fresno County, CA, Tony and his wife Beki met in college in Arizona and were married in 2007. They eventually returned to California and spent almost 10 years on the Central Coast, most of that in Los Osos in San Luis Obispo County, where they settled in and really felt at home. In March of 2020, they relocated to Prescott, AZ area where Tony now serves as the Associate Pastor of Firm Foundation Bible Church. His responsibilities include overseeing the young church’s communications—their brand, print and digital media, and marketing and content strategies.
Tony and Beki have four children, Chloe, Daisy, Manasseh (“Nas”), and Israel.
