I have several areas of skill and talent that would be useful to a prospective graphic design employer: graphic design work done on the computer (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.), photography, drawing, and writing. I have significant amounts of experience with each of these skills, and would be able to fully utilize them for a prospective graphic design employer, as needed. I have several years of experience as a freelance graphic designer. As a freelance graphic designer, computer software knowledge, design skills, customer service skills, and communication skills are all essential. I worked from home assisting customers with their graphic design needs. I communicated with clients by email, phone, etc. to assess their design visions and needs and to make their dreams a reality. I designed CD packaging, logos, business cards, a store sign, etc. And I had extensive additional design experience in creating many other types of design works in my years in college. I have advantaged-level expertise in Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator, as well as knowledge in many other graphic design software programs. I love design - it is a passion for me.
