Graphic Designer/Creative Professional

I'm a recent graduate with my BFA in Graphic Design with a minor in Studio Art. I love vintage design, typography, and color and take care to put these details in my work. Whatever skills my projects demand, I do my best to be creative and professional. Some of my skill sets include logos, branding, web layouts, posters, postcards, banners, apparel design, package design, printing, photography, digital editing, illustration, painting, marketing, and advertising. I love being a creative and have a passion for learning.

I am wildly passionate about design, branding, and innovation.   If I'm not designing for clients or work, I'm browsing through books or the web for things that inspire me.  I am fearless, hungry, and passionate.   I have over two years of graphic design experience in a professional setting.  I’m a recent graduate with my BFA in Graphic Design with a minor in Studio Art.  Over the summer I interned at nAscent Art New York and gained experience meeting tight deadlines, creating brand identities, designing web layouts, merchandise design application, photo manipulation and editing, and collaborating with a team.  I also fell in love with NYC and proved to myself that I could leave home and thrive off the culture and energy New York has to offer.

I'm currently the Graphic Designer/Marketing Assistant at New Mexico State University Career Services.  I have rebuilt their brand and designed their marketing collateral for career fairs and events.  I revamped their identity and made it appealing to the student body. Some of my responsibilities include creating design concepts for career fairs, illustrations, logos, presentations, event banners and working off style guides.  The Office of Study Abroad noticed my posters and banners around campus and commissioned me to revamp their marketing materials as well.  I currently freelance for Study Abroad now creating banners, postcards, and posters. 

I do freelance work with The Fullbridge Program in Boston.  They contacted me through a referral from my employer in New York to design a leave-behind folder and PowerPoint slide show to provide for new clients at their NYC office. 

I have extra skill sets that some designers don't have.  I can draw, illustrate, paint, photograph, print, and craft.  I have also tried my hand at ceramics and 3D modeling.  I come with an open mind, sense of humor, and thrive on constructive critique.

I understand the vision that a client presents to me and I’m capable of fulfilling and even expanding their vision through my design work. I integrate the knowledge and skills I learn from class and work and incorporate it into good design. I am always open to learning new skill sets because I want to be beyond proficient with my work. I pour my heart into my work because it’s something I enjoy; something I care about.
