Freelance Graphic Designer

I am a recent graduate of the Graphic Design curriculum at Tidewater Community College's Visual Arts Center, and am seeking an entry level position where I can continue my learning process and begin to contribute to the goals of a design organization. I have a strong design sense, and a sophisticated approach to the use of color and typography. I always put a great deal of thought into each piece I create and take pride in my projects. Also, I have a good working knowledge of Mac OS X, Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as a basic knowledge of the Microsoft Office Suite. I am currently studying part-time again at TCC to earn an Associates Degree in Studio Arts, to further my artistic abilities. I also intend to pursue a BFA in Graphic Design in due course.
