A Little About Me

Who I Am

avatar

Hi! I’m a San Diego based graphic designer with over seven years of experience creating and implementing multimedia solutions for a variety of high-profile businesses and individual clientele.

I earned my degree from San Diego State University, where I also minored in psychology, during which I gained the necessary skills of understanding the impact of color schemes and design on the human mind.

With a proven track record of success, I can implement designs and incorporate them into marketing campaigns to capture audiences attention and to persuade individual clients visually to take my advocated action. I have ample knowledge of Adobe Master Suite CC: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, which enables me to create professional, creative solutions for email, direct mail, print media, web design, and other marketing communications.

With a strong background in sales and customer relations as an Expert for Apple, Inc., I have the ability to work diligently at solving problems and appeasing customer concerns. My interpersonal skills carry over into this role as a graphic designer in that I can comprehend a client’s needs and execute designs that exceed their expectations.

My Process

Brainstorm

"Let's think about what you'd like to see."

I will think of various directions in which this project will be successful. I do this by making mood boards and or showing examples of other things out there that I think would relate.

avatar

Sketch

"Here are some ideas I came up with."

The ideas that I came up with will now be drawn out so it is easier to see what my mind is seeing. I will physically do this on paper or something use computer programs.

avatar

Mock-up

"Here is how it would look in reality."

This is taking the sketches to life, making them in real world pictures so the client can visualize my idea better. This step will show much more detail in the product as well.

avatar

Options

"Let's take those ones you liked further."

Options are important because sometimes one will spark a different idea. Mock-ups will be taken further by showing examples which explore other fonts or colors.

avatar

Fine-tune

"I will now work out any little kinks."

We are now close to the final product. I now go through the entire project and check for any errors or inconsistencies. Any last minute design also can happen at this point.

Execute

"it was nice working with you!"

The final project is now presented to the client and made sure of flawlessness. I warm welcome to return and a fond farewell is given.
