"To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master."
It started with a paintbrush and turned into a mouse. My love of art steered me in the direction of the School of Visual Arts where I furthered my education in design. I hold a Bachelor’s diploma in Graphic Design and have a total work experience of 11 years. I am well versed in different areas of design and have successfully designed solutions for print media and websites. My key duties and responsibilities include, among others, the following:
Meeting clients to discuss the objectives and requirements
Understanding the client’s needs and developing suitable concepts
Estimating the amount of time needed to complete projects
Designing different types of illustrations and layouts as per brand guidelines
Produce excellent visual solutions
Working with different types of media
Working alone or as part of a team as per the requirements of the project
Collaborating with copywriters, photographers, printers, stylists, illustrators, and account managers to give the best service to the clients
I am comfortable with Mac OSX as well as Windows. In addition, I have in-depth knowledge about almost all top designing software, including the following: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Final Cut Pro, Microsoft Office, Sketch, and Adobe Acrobat Professional. Good communication and listening skills are paramount for an Art Director, and I excel in both verbal and written communication.
