Experience

Graphic Designer

Tallahassee Community College

Meet with clubs and Organizations to determine the scope of a project. I also advise these clubs on strategies to reach a particular audience
to determine what message the design should portray. I also create images that identify a product or convey a message. I’m responsible for developing graphics and visual or audio images for product illustrations, logos, and websites. I create designs either by hand or using computer software packages. I then
Present the design to clients or the art director
Incorporate changes recommended by the clients into the final design. And I finally review designs for errors before printing or publishing them.

Graphic Designer

App Innovators

Designed user interfaces for mobile applications. My responsibilities included creating & designing solutions while interacting with clients to make sure each application had a high visual impact. I also designed the company official sign and shirt. I was also in charge of social media interactions.
