Hello! Thanks for stopping by...
I always been interested in all things creative...after studying an Arts Foundation in Spain, I decided to move to London. The city dazzled me for a while but I manage to settled and enrolled in various creative courses while working.
I developed my graphic design skills working in-house for various cosmetic brands for 7 years. I was exposed to both print and digital projects, working closely with the creative director as well as the marketing team in a fast pace environment.
I left for an artworker role in a high end paper goods and decoration company, where I stayed for 7 years, growing to a senior lead position and managing a small team of four in a busy studio environment.
During that time I specialised in factory ready product and packaging final artwork.
I acquired an excellent knowledge about printing processes and how to keep colour consistency across different substrates and platforms to safeguard the brand.
I got a quick mind, keen eye for detail and a problem solving attitude, with very good retouching and visualisation skills. I'm comfortable in busy studio environments and working across departments. With very good planning skills to deliver work efficiently and manage resources.
