What's the coolest part about being a designer?

-

Research

-

Getting to know your brand  and your customers and what they are looking for using case studies, interviews, surveys, face to face conversations, while investigating competing brands in order to improve your own.

-

Organization

-

Companies have a tendency to accumulate information and material over the years. A fabulous part about being a designer is organizing that information and bringing that material into 2021, clean and organized and easier to comprehend, using the research done.

-

-

Teamwork

-

Working with you and your ideas, goals and dreams to continue growth and inspire passion for the work you do and how you do it. Not only for you, but for your teammates and clients.

-

Development

-

It’s not only about our ideas, it’s about what the client wants. By combining all the material, we together discover the best solutions the most interesting way to present the concepts.

 I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP YOU! And make life better, for us.

I mix and use my design experience, my customer service knowledge and love for good design, by finding the best solutions for the client. This includes graphic design/branding/working with social media. I am also in regular contact with budgeting and invoicing, pricing, public relations and marketing.

What makes me most enthusiastic is being able to help update and improve small business material and help freelancers to realize their ideas and dreams. My long-term experience in the service industry is where I learned how to meet and exceed each customer’s expectations. I excel in customer service and working with clients and customers alike.
