My first branding experience.
I made designing and branding a career because I make it less about me, and more about my clients; about the direction their companies are heading and about the success they will achieve. Not only do the identities design & communication ensure my clients stand-out, they also provide visual expressions that stand the test of time, enabling clients to engage and connect with their own customers more effectively than ever before. I enjoy working within a team but I’m also a self-starter and a leader. I enjoy the psychological aspect of the user experience and will take the time test, interview and analyze a variety of users’ profiles to create solutions that make even the most complex of solutions user friendly and enjoyable for both the novice and expert. Throughout the years I developed the ability and flexibility to see the grand scheme, from concept, to design, to the finished piece by utilizing a variety of skills as a designer, team player and competent leader help to enhance the process. I am highly motivated to produce strong conceptual designs, communication and social experience under tight deadlines and use effective visual communication skills to complete projects efficiently while maintaining positive working relationships.
