I am a trained graphic designer and illustrator looking to share my skills with new employers. I spent two years studying fine arts at York University in Toronto and three years studying graphic design at Durham College, during which I developed a unique style and flair that has impressed both my clients and my employers. I am currently working as a graphic designer for Mr. Print Canada, where I have been for two years. I recently made the switch from an in-house to a remote position, to give me more time to focus on my freelancing work. My business card, brochure and poster designs have been used by a number of local companies, and my illustrations can be seen in prominent publications, such as Postscripts to Darkness, an Ottawa-based anthology. I have experience with a number of different clients in a number of different fields, and will always employ the best art and design strategies for your particular project. I look forward to working with you on your next project!

Experience

Graphic Designer

Jan 2012

As graphic designer at Mr. Print, I designed brochures, business cards, stationary, posters, forms, coupons and other advertisements. I have developed brand identities for new businesses, as well as working with in the branding guidelines of companies already well established. I bring a unique flair to my design work, and I have a style that can suit any niche need, from the professional to the underground. After two years at this position, I have transferred from an in-house role to a remote role, to spend more of my time focused on my freelance and illustration work.
