Web Graphic Designer with excellent UI skills and print experience
A love of art and design forced me, happily, to earn a degree in graphic design. My working experience is in both print and web design. I am equally adept in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign as I am in HTML and CSS. My other strengths are the ability to work effectively under pressure while maintaining strong team relationships through humor and communication. Experience has taught me to ask a lot of questions. Getting a clear picture of the emotional feel of how exuberant or staid a project should be is as important as its specification requirements and deadlines. The benefits are fewer misunderstandings, changes and a visually pleasing complete project delivered on time.
