Juanito Maiquez aka QUICCS is a self-taught toy designer who has developed into an internationally famous visual artist via drive and endurance. QUICCS is a household name in hip-hop, basketball, street fashion, toys, and the world of street art, and a large part of his credibility stems from his collaborations with renowned businesses worldwide to create spectacular items that reflect his one-of-a-kind style and artistic vision.

By no small coincidence, his creativity was also partly molded by PLDT and Smart growing up. “My dad, Teody Maiquez, was an executive in PLDT and Smart for 35 years where he dedicated most of his life to,” QUICCS shared. “My sister, Luday/Angel Maiquez-Guiang who is also my manager, also worked with PLDT and Smart for a time. Back then, PLDT was known for holding art competitions, and my dad would encourage me to join every time.”

While he grew up to become a graphic designer, his main dream was to create, design, and produce his own toys. His road to becoming a famous toy designer in the Philippines was no doubt challenging, but his passion never wavered. QUICCS would eventually see his passion bear fruit, especially with the advancement and accessibility of technology.

That grind would eventually turn QUICCS into the internationally sought-after toy designer and artist he is now. After a long journey, his toys have become must-have icons among toy collectors and street culture aficionados all over the world, drawing tons of hype with each highly-anticipated release. He would also eventually land his career-defining partnerships with brands such as Adidas, which hugely contributed to his rising stock in the culture.

He embodies the passionate dreamer in Smart Signature customers by being a certified goal-slayer who has managed to bring his passion and love for the arts to life with the help of the world-changing power and possibilities of technology.

“You don’t need to follow the blueprint of being a traditional artist,” QUICCS said. “Back in the day, artists are expected to join art competitions and connect with galleries. Now, you can use social media as a tool to make your own gallery. You don’t have to follow the norms, there are other paths that artists can take. The world is your gallery.”

QUICCS’s trailblazing work and journey are fitting for his partnership with Smart, as the telco giant is also leading the way to new and limitless possibilities for its subscribers by providing the fastest 5G network in the country.
