PROFILE/RESUME
Jen-jen Juan Ratcliff  
Freelance Graphic Designer
 
With over 16 years of experience in visual communication design, I’ve worked with a variety of brands and clients - ranging from entertainment and fashion to luxury bath fittings and small biotech companies.  I’ve taken projects from concept to completion, created mock-ups and gone on press checks. I understand budgets, deadlines, and the need to think creatively while working efficiently to deliver the client’s vision. Having designed billboards, bus wraps, logos, print/digital ads, packaging, collateral pieces, e-blasts and banner ads, I am constantly honing my skills in both print and digital media. I am ready for my next creative adventure with a great group that will further challenge my skills and allow the opportunity for growth.
