As a creative professional and manager, I have successfully worked for hundreds of clients of varying business needs on their graphic design and marketing projects including brochures, logo design, ad design, billboard design, trade show booth graphics, brand development and other print and web marketing material. My MBA in management and strategy gives me an edge over other marketing professionals and designers in developing marketing strategies and designing corporate marketing material. I have experience with all social media platforms as well as Wordpress, content writing, product listing on Amazon, ebay, Shopify and Teespring. I have the ability to juggle multiple projects simultaneously and I am open to feedback and customer/team input during the design process.
