Hi everyone and thank you for viewing my profile! I am a Mid-Level Graphic Designer who has been working in the Home Fragrance industry for four and a half years. Aside from creating key art per client needs, I also am involved in Presentation Design, and working one-on-one with various print vendors to make sure all art is print-ready. Outside of the office, I take on various print needs for various clients ranging from the DIY Bride-to-BE, the start-up CEO, to the Parent-in-need-of-Invitations. Print, packaging, and some 3D Designs are my strong points. Web projects are not my strong points but I am ALWAYS willing to learn.
