I am currently working as a freelancer. For one of my design projects, I created visual branding for a mapping technology company called Urban GIS. I designed a logo, a brochure, business cards, and other promotional materials, and I also created user manuals for their clients. I have a BFA degree in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I also worked as a designer for the campus housing department.
