The list of positive adjectives used to describe Victor Bejar – the man, his approach to work, and interactions with clients and coworkers seem endless – and paint a picture of a highly motivated, forward thinking, intelligent creative director. Bejar has earned a reputation with clients of being an approachable, well-organized and results oriented professional, who takes the time to understand both the brand, and the company behind the brand before he begins any design work. In addition, he is open for collaboration and provides a clear rationale for decisions made. All traits which contribute to his success at whatever he puts his hand to.
In 1999, Victor Bejar created Viveelrock.com, one of South America’s first internet radio stations. Soon after it went live, Victor went on to organize concerts in South America from his apartment in Pennsylvania. Despite the popularity of the site, he cleaned floors, served donuts and poured concrete to pay the bills. Using Viveelrock.com as his portfolio, he landed a job at Al Dia News, Inc., a Spanish language newspaper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During his five years at Al Dia, Bejar created graphics, managed the IT department, and learned everything he could about text, typography, and layouts from news veterans.
In 2010, Victor made the move to Blue Acorn, Inc., where he currently functions as Creative Director and UX Designer. The Charleston based e-commerce agency allowed him to transition from content-focused design to concentrating his expertise on user experiences. In the ensuing years, Victor has been the creative force behind all of Blue Acorn’s design work. Today, Victor’s work is well known in the e-commerce community. His designs for Blue Acorn have received accolades from Magento, and were featured in Internet Retailer earlier this year.
Apart from his duties at Blue Acorn, Victor wears the hat of Consultant. He is the owner and operator of Picture & Sound, an outfit founded in 1999, which offers graphic design, UX/UI design and user experience consultation with an emphasis on e-commerce and responsive design in Agile environments. At Picture & Sound, Bejar is responsible for the sale, planning, production, and execution of all projects; and effectively markets these services internationally, embracing Latin American countries.
This Fall, Victor will join us on October 29 to share the merits of Building a Profound Connection with your Client Around the User’s Needs during Revolve Conference at Wild Dunes Resort.

Attendees can customize their personal agenda by choosing sessions with an aim to improve their craft, fulfill goals, and learn cutting edge trends and best practices in a relatively short time. Revolve Conference will be much more than just another conference; bring your curiosity, your appetite for Southern food and your desire for a good time.
