In college, I began as a marketing major to gain skills and knowledge to enhance my ability to create effective designs. Shortly thereafter, I decided to focus on Graphic Design. I transferred to the Art Institute where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design. To further my knowledge, I later returned to add a Diploma in Web Design and Interactive Media to my resume.
I enjoy building designs from the bottom up starting with the framework of coding a website - using Bootstrap, HTML, PHP, CSS, and CSS3 - to designing branding, promotional material, advertisements and graphics. I am skilled at using the Adobe Creative Suite with advanced knowledge of Illustrator, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver in particular.
There is a constant learning process involved with this type of work. Technology is always changing and advancing and trends morph with the times. As a designer, I continue to research and update my skills and knowledge. There is always room for growth in this industry.
