Our Story

DeuxSouth is a band of creative dreamers and doers, posited and ready to take over the 35 corridor (San Antonio to Dallas) with their innovative designs, engaging content and knack for brand development. Though small in numbers, our dedicated team of visionaries has honed their crafts to expert levels. With offices in both Waco & San Antonio, DeuxSouth offers a diverse list of services perfect for businesses wanting to reach new audiences and grow their brand.

Tanner Freeman, with the help of Tori Cox (an intern at the time), founded DeuxSouth in the fall of 2015 to fill a void in the digital design landscape of Waco. An adventure-seeker at heart, Tanner embarked south a few months later and opened a second location in San Antonio. As the members of the “DeuxCrew” increased, so did our list of services. DeuxSouth’s services now include brand development, graphic design and illustration, print design, web design, signage & environment, packaging design, photography/videography and brand consultation.

We have worked for a diverse list of clients comprised of everything from a local barbecue food truck to a network of orthopaedic clinics to an international heavy-equipment manufacturer and craft whisky distillery. Though every client brings new needs and projects, we commit ourselves to a consistent process: learn your story, understand your needs, and innovate creative solutions designed for your success.

Our purpose and our passion is to tell brand stories better. Now, it’s time to tell yours.

Tanner Freeman
[Owner/Art Director]

Owner and lead designer, Tanner brings visions to life through creative illustrations, logos, web design and art direction. After graduating from Abilene Christian University with a degree in Graphic Design and a brief stint in Ft. Worth, he moved home to Waco and started what would become DeuxTone (now DeuxSouth). Tanner’s passion for giving a voice to the members of his city developed during his WacoTown days, and he carries the same devotion to community of San Antonio. Tanner is a lover of the great outdoors and his wife Angie. Some of his latest adventures including bumping into bears at Big Bend, cycling his way from Pittsburgh to DC and adopting our shop dog Joey.

Kristi Pereira
[Project Manager]

Kristi grew up in the Piney Woods of East Texas, but has called Waco home for almost 11 years. After finishing college at Stephen F. Austin State University, she started her career in education as a middle school English and Art teacher, and has most recently worked for local non-profits.

The common thread that runs through these two professional experiences are the people. Kristi hopes, as our new Project Manager, to carry out the collective passion for telling better brand stories by caring for the clients behind those stories.

Her own people include her husband, Hermann, and two kiddos Hudson and Ruby. Kristi loves CrossFit and all things nutrition and fitness, but is also passionate about pie. (Balance, folks.)

Rebecca Kaiser
[Graphic Designer]

Rebecca’s artistic endeavours started with her snatching art supplies from her sister. Years later after watching her graphic designer hubby work in Illustrator, Rebecca began researching the colorful avenues of the digital art world. Teaching herself the Adobe Suite became a full time hobby outside the daily grind of her 9-5 job. In 2016, she transitioned into a full time graphic designer and joined the DeuxSouth team. Rebecca is well-versed in all aspects of digital design, but her numero uno speciality is typography, lettering and illustration.

Originally from Alaska, Rebecca made her way to sunny San Antonio with her husband and their cat. She has been known to while away Saturday mornings snuggled up with her cat and binge-watching cartoons.

Brian Closs
[Photographer]

For most of his early life, Brian dreamed of becoming a marine biologist. Then he learned that marine biologists do not spend their every day swimming with sharks.

Thought for a while Brian thought he’d become a marine biologist, Brian now studies Film & Digital Media at Baylor University. His love for photography followed his interest in videography. Brian dipped his toes in the waters of design during an internship with a creative agency in his home state, Maryland, and realized a passion for branding.

Originally from Frederick, Maryland, Brian and his family spent summers in Florida, spurring his interest in marine life. In middle school, he placed second in the state for a bridge design competition, so he apparently had many career paths available to him. But we are glad to have his eye as a photography and junior designer.
