Designer, artist, and entrepreneur Rubén Quiza spent most of his childhood in the seaside town of Ladrido, Spain where he began his studies in music, later becoming a classically trained pianist. In 1989, his family moved to La Coruna, Spain—a city with a vastly larger population, offering many different cultural and creative influences. Quiza received his first informal training in design while working with a furniture restoration company in 1999. He continued to develop interest in the design field as a window design technician for Zara (Inditex Group).
In 2001, Quiza moved to London to pursue a career in interior design. He enrolled in the Regent Academy of Fine Arts where he completed two Professional Interior Design courses. In the fall of 2002 he was accepted into the London Metropolitan University where he would obtain his Higher National Diploma. In 2005 he obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design and Technology with Honors. His final project was selected among the top designers in the U.K. to be displayed in the New Designers Exhibition at the Business Design Center in London, U.K.
During the time of his studies, Quiza spent his summers in Spain, working with various film and T.V. production companies as a set designer and art director on films such as “Sommne” and “La Velocidad Funda el Olvido”.
In the summer of 2005, Quiza would return to La Coruña to open his own design studio, where he carried out various design and consulting projects. It would be three years before he would move to Chicago to marry his wife, whom he met while they were both studying design in London. In 2008 with his goal to establish his business in the U.S., his first project would be to remodel her clothing boutique.
Since then, Quiza has worked with clients such as Toyota, HHG (Hispanic Hospitality Group), Local 150 (International Union of Operating Engineers) and Sushi Samba, gaining international praise. In 2011, Rubén was invited to Toyota City, Japan, to present his design at a symposium for a concept car. His design for Toyota Motor Corporation, was recognized for its groundbreaking innovation.
In 2015 he designed the set for the critically acclaimed “Cool Swing a Night with Borja Quiza”, completed the design and construction of a floral boutique in La Coruña, Spain, and worked alongside the Steel Consulting Group as part of their 3D and graphics department.
His other noted works have been a resort and hotel in Solta Island, Croatia, a Bikram Yoga Studio in Chicago, and a luxury condo on 1110 North Lakeshore Drive. His current projects include TRYP Hotel by Wyndahm in Chicago, IL , and the Olympic Arts and Tech Incubator in Cicero, IL.
Rubén has helped develop the digital signage platform, Bannervision, and since its inception in 2014, was the source of market knowledge to make it the product that QMA is able to deliver today. He has over 15 years of experience in the interior design, 3D rendering, content creation, and marketing fields. QUIZAGIL Group is the newest addition to the family, joining forces with Manuel Gil, a 30 year veteran in the Chicago real estate community. They incorporate their respective knowledge and experience in development, design, real estate sales, fundraising and property management to ensure that client’s needs are met from every angle. In 2017, Rubén established Quiza Media and Advertising under the umbrella of QUIZAGROUP.COM which also includes Rubén Quiza Design LLC, and QUIZAGIL Group LLC.
