    San Francisco, CA

I recently returned to the Bay Area after completing an MA in Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, London and am looking for design work on a freelance or full-time basis. I have five years experience in San Francisco, New York and London for clients from various industries. This has involved designing corporate identities, print collateral, websites and motion graphics. I've worked in agencies and independently with clients and am proficient in all the industry-standard applications.
