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.

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.

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 re-branding company 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 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.
