Experienced Designer seeking new and exciting opportunities!
OBJECTIVE: To acquire a long-term position in graphic design that will showcase my creativity, interpersonal, and organizational skills
As a highly creative and tech-savvy individual I go above and beyond the call of duty, to provide a vast amount of support and insight to better both my employer and myself. I am a wearer of many hats and have achieved the ability to problem solve and multi-task for quite some time now. During the past ten years, working as a designer I’ve demonstrated the capabilities to: think outside of the box, generate a streamlined work environment, provide cutting edge designs while undertaking multiple projects. Being a self-starter with exceptional talent and organizational proficiency, I am confident that my personal interests, academic background, and work experience will surpass any employer’s needs.
