I have over 12 years’ experience as an artworker and graphic designer in advertising agencies and media companies. With an in-depth knowledge of the pre-press process and photography retouch, I have the ability to manage projects from concept to print. I have a proven track record with book jackets, magazines, POS, catalogues, brochures, direct mail leaflets, banners, large format ads, reports, business cards, letterheads and other marketing collateral. I have also worked on websites and mobile app interfaces and am currently developing my skills in User Experience and Digital Design, as these are areas in which I am keen to expand
my knowledge.
