Background

Summary

As a Graphic Designer I have stressed the importance of creativity and attention to detail. Every piece of a composition should be weighed and no item should go overlooked. I aim to show logic and reason in my work for the benefit of clarity. In this context, I use visual design as a tool that can transmit and transform perceptions of a certain product or service. I have focused on uniqueness as a strength that can make a design stand out from the rest to better serve its purpose. I stress commitment to deadlines, organization, and sharing thoughts and ideas with confidence in group and client settings. Whether as an individual or a participant in a group, I strive to handle the project with ambition and enthusiasm from start to finish.
