Robert Repta is a Minneapolis-based creative designer, who enjoys long strolls along the lakes, puppies and delivering kick-ass work to clients. Don't be fooled by his tall stature and semi-serious gaze. Inside, Robert is a big, lovable bear who enjoys RuPaul's Drag Race, glitter, and bright colors.
Robert has a collaborative spirit and an elevated design aesthetic. This, coupled with his strategic art direction, makes every design stand out, and disrupt the category.
His positive vibe, level-headed temperament and a strong work ethic carry into his projects.
Robert’s diverse and well-rounded skills include: art direction, branding, brand management, print and digital work, photography, packaging design, web design, copywriting, and social media. The brands with whom he has worked are equally diverse, ranging from beauty (ex. Neutrogena & Elizabeth Arden) and fashion (ex. Bulgari & Kenneth Cole) to Fortune 500 companies (ex. General Mills, 3M, ConAgra, and Merck & Co).
Fun Fact: Robert initiated National Packaging Design Day to be celebrated on May 5th, officially registered on the National Day Calendar website.
Robert and his husband David have the two cutest pups, Lilly and Olivia, and ParkerCat, the adorable symmetrical feline. When he is not working away, he enjoys traveling, cocktails, attending art shows, and people watching.
