I am an Art director / Sr. Graphic Designer specializing in layout design, website design and photography for small businesses and individuals. I usually work within the automotive industry, fashion industry, medical and health industry but I’m open to any proposal. My expertise can help your brand or business grow and bring new customers or partners.


GRAPHIC DESIGN

I have been working as a Senior Graphic Designer and Art Director for over a decade. Throughout my career, I have managed and directed many different projects with clients such as John Deere Canada, Forever Living Products, Siepa France, and Adderley Davis & Associates. I am proficient in Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Creative Suite, and a gamut of other graphic design software on both PC and Mac operating systems, including QuarkXpress, Adobe Indesign, Adobe Flash, Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Illustrator.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography is very important in the work of a Graphic Designer. It might be the solution for an entire campaign or just that extra that brings life to an add. They say that one image contains 1000 words. I always try to tell a story when I'm taking a picture or when I'm picking one from the image stock market. A good picture can be the difference between selling 100 units and selling 1,000,000 units.

WRITTEN CONTENT

Being able to articulate in few words the essence of an advertising campaign is the new form of art. These days people don't have the time to understand the purpose of each product and how that product can improve their lives. Sending out there a sentence that can be understood by a massive audience is a skill that every designer has to have. 



CREATIVITY

I have a very active and inquisitive mind, and enjoy working and creating in a diverse range of fields. I am also a professional photographer, and often integrate my photography skills into my graphic design work as well. I am very goal and customer oriented, and strive to deliver results that meet and exceed my clients' expectations.

VIDEO EDITING

I have always been a big fan of movies and moving images. Even if photography remains my main skill, I never step away when it comes to video editing. My favorite tools are Sony Vegas Pro and Adobe Premiere. Sometimes I also venture into Adobe After Effects. 

AUDIO EDITING

Music has always been my favorite activity. From playing guitar in small bands and with big artists to mixing, mastering and producing, music was a big part of my life. I'm self taught but I'm proud of my accomplishments. I work with Steinberg Cubase, Logic Pro and a multitude of plugins.
