We are Cherry Bomb, a multidisciplinary creative studio focused on Brand Creation, Branding and Illustration and Web Development.
We believe fervently in the power of design as a “Massive Construction Weapon”. For us, design can unite and inspire people; it can simplify conversations, abstract the world and elevate experiences. Good design is not meant to be seen, but to be enjoyed.
We are Pop because we are delicious and sweet as a cherry. We are Pop because what can be more pop than a cherry in a milkshake? We love the use of color, of illustration and the infinite use of creativeness. We are Pop because we love our friends, our families, homemade food, plants and little puppies who say hello out in the street.
But also we are Punk. We are Punk because we know that a good design is not condescending neither conventional. Good design must educate and transgress, just like a good designer must not be condescending with their client. Probably, if you wish that your designer be just that, your designer, we might not be your best choice. We don’t have absolute truth, but we can find it, together, just like we can create brands that endure and transcend.
We are Punks because we are against both people who throw trash and cantankerous old people. Because we know that the world can be a better place if we effort a little bit of being empathic with other people, on being responsible with our environment, with the people, with ourselves, promoting the culture of love instead of hate. We know that the world will be a better place with music, smiles, culture and education. “…We can be heroes, just for one day.”
Our studio is small and pretty: we are six people compromised with quality, by giving the best of us and reflecting it doing our work better each day, contributing with that little effort to make this world a better place.That’s why we can’t do any other thing, but deliver all our passion, ability and imagination on each project we do, because for us, each of our clients is unique and special. That’s the challenge we want to overcome, so, why don’t we make a better place together? We are the cherry of that delicious cake that is your brand.

Nora la Disenadora
Art Director & Founder
Less complex than you think. Lover of mystery and unsolved cases. I don't like sweet desserts, nor anything cloying, salt or citrus, what better!
Admirer of weird styles, wild hair, striped clothes (I love it!). Still learning to illustrate, to be an adult, to take care of plants, to have friends (although sometimes I'm terrified to meet new people)… Not much to say. Simply one day I will take the initiative.

I'm not that quoting kind of person, but here there it is one I like it: "Never let anyone make you feel that you don't deserve what you want". Is not a deep thought from Sartre, Kierkegaard or some other existentialist philosopher. It's from a movie. In fact is from a 90's teenager movie; it's said by Heath Ledger in "10 Things I Hate About You".
I think is a good thought, very simple, yeah, but promising. Because if you put everything you have (and a little bit more) you may end up reaching what you want. But if you don't, at least you know you gave everything to achieve it.
I'm a guy with simple tastes. I don't have a fortune, but I have a beautiful life next to my girl. I don't have a car (and I don't want it), but I have a bicycle. I like indie pop and cloying songs. I'm the cofounder of this little creative studio, in which I put all my heart every day to make all who work here have a beautiful and calm life. For me, that's happiness.
Strategic Account Director
Designer by profession, dreamer by conviction. I'm that kind of person that is at peace with the environment. I like to be cool with people around me and I'm always looking for nice stuff for everybody and from everything. I'm very talkative and smile almost all the time, but overall I enjoy making others smile, I analyze things all the time, sometimes I would like to turn off my head but I can't, I sleep a little, but eat a lot.
I love my Yeyi, my family and my friends above all things. I like to meet people, places and music. I can spend hours listening and looking for new bands, live versions of songs, anecdotes and all that has to do with music.
I'm never too cold or too hot. I’m more into salty tastes than sweet ones. I like to feel the water from the sea or pools, but not from the rain. I like to walk and ruffle my hair when it’s cold. I wear glasses even to sleep. I collect hand watches, and astronauts or space images make me smile.
I get into what I do not care (because I do care) and always want to help with everything I can. Do you need something? :)
Enrique "el Hein"
Lead Programmer & Cofounder
Mine is the programming... It remembers me when I used to disarm my toys to see their inner working; although I did not always manage to rearm them, but it satisfied my curiosity and inquired into the operation of each piece.
Now I'm still doing the same but inverse: going from the tangible —the artifact—, to the intangible —the web architecture—. Writing pieces of logic that modify markups carved by declarative styles.
I'm always working to the rhythm of electronic music, so I'm into a kind of active meditation.
Diseñadora Gráfica Sr.
The best thing I do since 2015 is to create logos. After a long journey this is where design best treated me. On my free time I do tarot, make playlists and write horoscopes.
A secret about me that few know (apart from listening to Reggaeton) is that I like to cook: I research first for the millenary recipes from the family (I become a Sherlock Holmes, do research and identify concepts), then as a good millennial I watch some videos (references, Behance are my shepherd), I know how to ask for good advice (here comes the influence of friends, chiefs or a client who explains pretty well the brief), but also from time to time I like to experiment; I use more basil than normal (I have leaned towards neon colors, contrasts and typographic games), finally I season and use a nice crockery (my favorite part, take out applications, embellish the logo and play with my creation) and in the end I serve it warm.
And look at me now design/cooker in Cherry Bomb. #whodidyoumakefunof
Web Developer Jr.
I started doing web desing a little less than a year ago, after many events and decisiones led me to educate myself as a programmer at Laboratoria, and now I’m starting my career at Cherry. I know I am where I must be, I take pride in being a part of the Studio and I always give my outmost for the work we do.
I believe in friendship, empathy and honesty. The people around me who have shown me those values are an example for me to become a better person every day. There’s always a lot of work to do and a lot of things to learn! There’s nothing like breaking with your own prejudices, reprogramming your mindset, and taking what’s though set in stone to question, take apart and improve.
As for my hobbies, a favorite of mine is dance (at the Free Dance Workshop in UNAM, formerly Coreographic Workshop), I also cook, spend time out with friends or just stay at home.
I consider myself a normal person, I just happen to have interests and tastes that some might find quirky or extravagant, but don’t we all? How boring would it be if we didn’t! My choice ways to express myself are trough fashion and coding, speaking of which, I’ll let you in on a little secret, at some point I was going to pursue a career as textile engineer. I have some interesting projects that I definitely want to take beyond the drawing board, but I’m taking things one day at a time.
More than any luxuries, I just aspire to lead a quiet life doing what I love surrounded by the people I love and who love me.

Press up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A.
Congratulations biography unlocked!
My love for visual programming of digital products began with my favorite video games: so many ways to present to the gamers the actions that you could perform always seemed fascinating to me, from the simple 4 options in the 64-bit games in the 80's to the projects in VR of 2016.
I started as a designer, but I was never good at translating my ideas to developers. One day Napoleon Bonaparte spoke to me in the form of a Facebook post and he said "If you want something well done, do it yourself."
My hobbies are few, but they keep me entertained. I’m a supporter of both the FC Arsenal of North London (Over land and sea and Leicester) and the Jaibas Bravas de Tampico, player of ALL the FIFA video game editions (1993 to 2018 and counting) and proud taster certifier of enfrijoladas and molletitos (because frijolitos).
I'm PJ of the Cherry Bomb cast this season! #gg
I work since little. Norita and Gabo adopted me, they put me a cool name and brought me to Cherry, where I have the most important work: I'm in charge of making the guys happy!
It's a very demanding job, just imagine having to be pretty and playful all the time! Very tiring.
Luckily I'm doing well, I have unlimited hugs and pats!

they trust in our work
A few years ago, we began an intimate relationship by renewing one of our identities. Their professionalism led to create an indispensable synergy for us. Just enough to take one or two coffees and listen to us et voila!!! They give life to all our ideas, materializing everything that we had between the lines, not to mention the great warmth and human understanding from the study, before different adversities from us as clients.

It has been very pleasant to work with the Cherry Bombs: not only because of their high talent that they have deployed in Ventus Mexico to transform their identity with great creativity, nor for their competence and professionalism in capturing our needs, nor for their fun and genuine illustrations... but for the hullabaloo of having met a team with an authentic sense of humor and great human warmth. Thank you!
