Advertising Design
Fashion Institute of Technology
I'm currently seeking a position as a junior art director. I know working at an advertising agency requires you to think quickly under pressure, especially when making a pitch. I currently work at a studio specializing in design and print production, located in the East Village called Andrij Borys Associates. At ABA, there isn’t a problem I can't solve. I am very comfortable working under pressure. As a senior designer, I handled my fair share of crisis situations. I know I have a lot to offer to a team.
