Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. I am presently taking some online classes with Treehouse Island Inc. It is a wonderful website to brush up and gain new incites on resources and different ways to approach coding. I also like the fact they have offered App programming for Android and Apple which I am planning to get into very soon.
Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. I have been drawing my whole life and have a love and passion for design, painting and photography. I was hoping at one point to get into illustration but I absolutely love where I am at right now. Freelancing and getting to meet new people and work on a variety of different design projects and photography projects has been my biggest love of all time and greatest outlet.
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. I work on a variety of Graphic & Photography projects such as:
Album & DVD Covers
Brochures & Catalogs
Sweet 16/ Quincenera
Album Cover Shoots
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. Recently I worked with a cousin of a famous painter. I was asked to develop her idea into a t-shirt design. I am a big fan of this artist and he has been one of my inspirations. When I developed the looks for the t-shirt I was very happy with them and excited. When I presented them to my client she was MORE than happy with them and in awe by the time frame I had finished them and out come. I look forward to working on more designs with her in the near future.
Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to
professionals about their project?
A. Many people think this is easy. Ive been told that I'm lucky because I get to play with crayons all day. Its really not that simple. The proper way to develop any graphic material is to research the demographic, competitors and then devise multiple looks for the project in question. Once that is done then you sit down with the client and compare and contrast what is liked and what is not and then another round of mock ups are made. Web design is even more complicated with knowing coding and testing constantly to make sure everything works as it should. Everything takes time just not excessively.
