Senior Graphic Designer

Specialties: Branding, identity, print design, packaging design, conceptual design, creative strategy
I came to Orange County after living in San Francisco where I studied at the Academy of Art University, majoring in Graphic Design with an emphasis on Corporate Identity. I have 10+ years of experience and have created award winning concepts that produced successful campaigns for many clients.
My style is modern with a clean, simplistic approach. I provide creative solutions with a unique use of color, conceptualization and problem solving. I meet challenges head on, with intelligence and finesse.

My branding and design skills helped turn one job into three:
First we won the bid to re-brand Chevron Federal Credit Union (“FCU”), once completed, the client liked my designs so much they took all the elements and incorporated them into their own and gave us the task of re-branding the FCU a second time. They were so pleased that when they purchased Spectrum FCU they gave us that re-branding assignment too.
Out of ten designers, my work won the re-branding for PSB. This project included new logo design and creation of all collateral.
