Alumnx Exploration Series: Art Baez ('02 BFA Toy Design)—Officially Licensed
Art Baez is not a household brand, but his toy designs over the past 20 years have been in thousands of homes across the globe. He approaches his concepts and product development with a fan-based passion that has led him to work on over 50+ officially licensed entertainment properties, video game franchises, and adult collector products. Whether creating an exclusive for Comic-Con or designing a master toy line for a feature film release, he strives to make it fun, on-brand, and hopefully resold on eBay in the aftermarket for twice the cost.
Unlike the famous toymaker Geppetto, Art Baez is a husband, a father to three real humans, and three big dogs. Much like Santa’s elves, he is short.
