Today we’d like to introduce you to Ozzie Savinon.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Osvaldo AKA Ozzie. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started designing at 15 years old in my living room. I went to DASH, one of the top-ranked high schools in the United States, and it was through my work experience course that I started to learn the niche techniques of the sign-making industry. I loved it because there was something different to do every day, and it was exciting to start seeing my design on peoples’ cars.
My experience in the sign shop taught me how to work a cutting plotter and hand-paint signage. I bought my own machine and started working out of my house until I had enough clientele and funds to get my own studio in 2000. Once I started, it was a slow build of clientele but my work always brought me back more referrals.
The years brought bigger jobs and bigger clients, but I still had (and have) loyal clientele from my early days. Originally I had intended for my studio to work with large commercial vehicles and cruise ships, so I named my shop Fantasea Media.
Once we partnered with Visuapex Creatives, Fantasea Media was able to offer website design and digital advertising as well as large format printing and vehicle wraps. Each member of our team brings their own skill sets that are integral to the quality services we offer our clients. Our team is a family, and each of our clients has become part of that family. Not only do we support local businesses, but we have had the opportunity to work with Telemundo, The Children’s Trust, Zoo Miami, Mundo Fox, Buchanan’s, and even Airbnb.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It was an everyday challenge, there were a lot of hardships and obstacles. I worked by myself for a long time, so every role of the business was left up to me. You can’t grow to be all of those things at the same time, so I struggled by myself to make the impossible happen for clients. I’ve been broke, had people smear my name and business, and even had people take clients from me.
Despite these obstacles, I kept moving forward. I took steps to keep up with technology and stay on top of the creative curve. No amount of trash-talking kept me from learning new techniques and keeping up with my industry. Some people have jobs filing papers, then you wake up one day and realize you’ve been filing papers for 15 years. For me, every day challenges that I have faced proved to be what makes it all worth it.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I think I’ve had good luck, we can’t complain. But luck doesn’t play a major role. What plays a major role is that we hustle the way we do and that we constantly work the way we’re working. There’s a lot of people who don’t hustle the way we hustle.
