Bio
I am a Graphic Designer/Creative Artworker with more than 20 years of experience in printed media. I am passionate about design, typography and, in particular, Mac systems. I am excellent in Adobe Creative Suite CC 2019 (InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, and Photoshop.) I am also, if necessary, expert in QuarkXPress.

Brainbench Certified Master User in Adobe InDesign CS. Transcript ID#: 327612.
Date: 2011-02-14. Scored higher than 97% of all previous test takers.

I have been working within the international community for the past 25 years and have spent time in America and freelanced with US companies. I speak more than 7 languages.

I have the ability to take a brief, successfully develop my designs laterally with creative vision, produce accurate print ready artwork, work within deadlines and project manage work through to completion.

I have worked with major brands such as M&M, Mars, Snickers, Whiskas, Lipton, Merrild, Sheba, Samsung, Tramontina, HP, L’Oreal, Lancôme, Renault, Mazda, Jaguar and Adidas. My skillset includes creating corporate identities, logotypes, stationery, brochures, annual reports, magazines, catalogues, flyers, business cards, posters, and presentations for exhibitions and events and I have extensive experience working both B2B and B2C.

I worked with M&M, Snickers, HP and Tramontina, in marketing campaigns created for Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland and South Africa. My language skills were invaluable in these projects (catching last minute typos and misspells).

Although, I have worked on the creative end of producing ads, I currently enjoy taking creative works and fastidiously preparing them for production. I feel that I have the advantage because I have worked on both ends of this process.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any further info you may require.
