A Little About Me...

Graphic Designer

I was born in Costa Rica and raised in Miami, Florida. I come from a big family with two older sisters and one younger brother. My parents gave me a great upbringing and gave me something that can never be taken away. The freedom to choose what I wanted to do with my life.

 

My love for art started from a combination of two things. First, seeing my father create ads for a small paper in Costa Rica when he was young. Second, my eldest sister's love for design.

 

I began my career in the arts when I tried out for Norland Middle School’s Art Magnet Program and studied fine arts. I then auditioned at New World School of the Arts and was accepted into the program. I graduated with a focus in Visual Arts. Later I attended Broward College and graduated with an AA in graphic design. I loved art so going into the world of design was a natural next step.

 

"Design is a solution to a problem. Art is a question to a problem." John Maeda

Now with over seven years of customer service experience, twelve years of design experience and over 4 years of social media management experience, my skills have grown and matured to a level I feel can accomplish whatever task is set before me.

Chovitta is an amazing, outgoing person. She came to me and asked me to give her business cards that would best represent her. I asked her to pretend I was a client of hers and through the experience she gave me I came up with this business card.

When Casa Interiors came to me they were a mess. Their printed material and website didn't match, their business cards and color palette was horrific. I got in and learned as much as i could about what the company did and how they did it and what they were about. The result was an elegant and modern look that personified what Casa Interiors stands for.

What

I do best

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” –Steve Jobs

It all begins with an idea, a sketch and great execution. I have a diverse work experience, from customer service to social media management to graphic design and creative direction. I have experience in two different worlds, office administration and the world of art and design. I feel that the skill set I can bring to the table is one that can help benefit and grow your organization.

 

I am proficient in all print creative programs provided by Adobe: Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign.  I also enjoy working further and taking a brand into the virtual world with a beautifully designed website. And then taking it to the next level by helping brands make their identity and mission present through social media.  In today's world a social media presence has become a must for growing companies.

Core Skill Set

Creative Direction

This goes far beyond a sketch or a blurb of text quickly put together. I meticulously go over every aspect of a project and set a vision for what we want a brand or an idea to be from print to web to its social media presence.

Brand Identity

An organization's identity goes beyond their logo. Color, typography, voice, style and mission are all elements that create a brand. I enjoy developing and rebranding company's identities.

Logo Design

I love creating a brand from a simple sketch to a clean logo to a modern informative website. I like to work with new companies' on their logos or established companies' on rebranding their current logos. The key is to do it right. When you do it right a logo will last forever.

Email Marketing

Email marketing is a great way to reach thousands of potential customers directly. It brings your business’ message through an attractive mix of graphics, text and links directly to people who may have never heard of your business.

Here's a Little Bit About

My Background

Experience

I have 10 plus years of experience in the design field. I've worked in many places from startups to well established companies and I always make room for freelance work.

Roberto is a fantastic asset. As a graphic designer and email campaign creator for my marketing team, he was always on point in design and message. Roberto was willing to add input to any project, even outside the scope of his immediate responsibility. He is a pleasure to work with, and very intelligent and thoughtful. He would make a great addition to any team.

Kevin Webster
Sr. Director of Marketing, The SWI Group

Roberto is an excellent Graphic Designer, who you can tell truly loves his craft. He always took direction well and had a great willingness to work on any project, both big and small. Knowing that knowledge in HTML code would help improve his contribution to the team, Roberto was super eager to learn, even if it meant on his own time - which showed a lot of drive. I was consistently impressed with his work and know that he'd make a great addition to any creative team.

Tammi J. Myers
Email Marketing Manager, Zumba

Roberto designed the public face of Woodsdale Group LLC, including the logo, website, business cards, PowerPoint templates, etc. Additionally, he supports and maintains these products for us. He is responsive, flexible and professional. We are incredibly happy with all aspects of his work and recommend him fully.

Alan Spies
President, Woodsdale Group

Roberto is always willing to lend a hand. I've worked with him in a freelance capacity and no matter what he has going on, he always makes himself available. He is a team player and always has ideas that go beyond what is asked of him. He pays great attention to detail and his designs are clean and modern. He keeps a pulse on current trends and is very knowledgeable about social media. Roberto always tries to go the extra mile and doesn't just get a job "done", he always brings more to it. He is an asset and a great person to work with as well.

Kimberly Costa
Owner/Printer, Honizukle Press

He helped develop Artistic Lifestyle's brand and did a great job of it. He was also actively involved in the day-to-day social media developments. Great personality and very focused in all he does. Would be a great asset to any company.

Pilar Campos
General Manager, Jonathan Adler

Roberto's talent for design was a great resource for our team. He provided amazing graphics and extraordinary ideas and always delivered on time. Roberto is very detail oriented, always asked as many questions as possible in order to deliver the right finished product. He never failed to impress us with his speed and talent. He is a brilliant graphic designer and his creativity always went well beyond our expectations. Aside from his design skills, Roberto also shared the workload in our multidisciplinary team, taking the role of Social Media Manager with great attention to detail when setting up marketing campaigns in diverse platforms and tracking results every morning. This helped us to measure the overall online sales performance in order to make it better each day.

Elvis Morales
Developer, Forum One

Roberto is a pleasure to work with. He's always willing to help and lend a hand when needed and is never afraid to take on a challenge. His creative process and graphic design skills are exceptional and would be a great asset for any company. His ideas go far beyond what is required for the task at hand and you will never receive anything less than 100%. He is a team player and a great person to work with.
