My Name is Victor James Toro and I am a Design II at New Balance, Boston. I spend most of my days working on the "Elite Edition" Collection every season, in addition to other key and core 574, 501 and 565 projects for both the US markets and EMEA. I am also an Illustrator in my free time and work on my own webcomic and printed comics to keep up to speed with my print design background. My illustration skills have been useful at New Balance for supporting my daily projects, and also for the pursuit of fun side projects like book covers and character designs. In my spare time I LOVE to draw, play video games, cook, buy art books, and just enjoy the simple things in life. I feel I can find inspiration in anything and with enough concentration and the right music, I can put it to use.
