About Me

Short Intro

Twelve years ago, due to the housing bubble of 2008, it was still difficult to find work in the architectural field, so I resourced to learn other design trends. Graphic Design became very necessary back then due to mobile applications, new websites emerging, etc.
I became the graphic designer at a small, family-owned company of light and electrical manufacturing. From graphic designer to wearing multiple hats for 11 years, I excelled in B2B marketing. I redesigned the company's website, their packaging, and their entire brand.
Having been educated in architecure and in art, I used all my will and knowledge to find strategies to uplift the company's image.
When it comes to consumer's perception, branding is everything.
