Background

Summary

In my 10 years experience of designing websites, I have built a strong branding ethic for creating sophisticated designs with simplistic user interfaces. The goal for all my projects: staying within the lines of a corporate identity yet expanding the horizon to match and appeal to modern taste. Fully experienced with all Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and currently building animation skills with After Effects. HTML, CSS and Javascript coding proficiency. After working in Japan for 5 years I have developed extremely organized goal procedures for prioritizing and finishing projects pre-deadline. My focused markets of interest tend towards current fashion, art galleries and forward-thinking design movements. Therefore ideally, my career will surround me with corporations that have a dream to make the world a nicer place, so I can easily help to design the dream.
