What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes . . . I am constantly continuing education through online training webinars, video training of the latest design software, techniques, tutorials and developments in graphic and web design. I also study graphic design trends from the US and Europe. This helps me to maintain a high level of visual sharpness and inspiration.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started drawing and designing from the age of twelve. 15 years ago I decided to get into graphic design after helping a friend of mine start their own ad agency. Businesses started bringing their advertising needs to us, so I suggested to my friend; "why don't you let me design your client's ads, logos and marketing materials and other graphics design needs. " This would be a great fit!"
Soon there after I began doing freelance graphics for non-profit organizations and small to medium sized businesses.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Jobs that I commonly get are identity branding, outdoor media design, web design and logo design packages. Then other type jobs may vary from client to client: such as out door signage and ad design.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The job that I am particularly proud of is an identity branding project recently created for a radio talk show. This project included a website, business stationery, and a logo design package. Upon completion of the project the client was able to immediately strengthen their brand. Overall my client was very satisfied with the quality of the work and service.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advice for a customer looking to hire a provider like myself would to be to first verify that the provider has a professional website that showcases their history, portfolio, clientele and testimonials. Last but not least get all agreements in writing specifying all fees, up front costs turn around time and legalities.
