His heart tells his why and his hands show his how.
Carlos Fernandez is another businessman staying loyal to his hometown of Wichita. And while his work has taken him from Silicon Valley to the Oval Office, TWICE, he doesn’t allow his accolades or his fanfare to change him. His goal is to help others succeed.
“My why is to represent change,” Fernandez said. “When people see me, I want them to be inspired. I’m still working on my legacy, but I do know I want to spark positive change.” Creating change hasn’t come easy for Fernandez, 36, CEO of Clutch Studio, a performance-based creative powerhouse.
Fernandez started his career doing graphic design work for record labels and musical artists. That eventually turned into building websites, custom digital solutions, mobile apps, and other technology-based products. Starting out Fernandez made his basement his office and spent most of his work time there constructing things and working on projects for people all across the world.
Eventually locking in major clients required him to open a studio in the heart of the city. Clutch Studio is now located across from the Intrust Bank Arena on Commerce Street. Commerce Street is a relatively small warehouse district bound by INTRUST Bank Arena, Kellogg and the BNSF railway. For generations, this area holds many of the city's industrial warehouses and served as a major manufacturer of broom corn.
