I have gained an excellent knowledge in all areas of design and related technology during the past 10 years. I am very passionate about the industry and identify my adaptability as one of my major strengths. I am able to jump easily from being a designer to a sub-editor, from a colour adjuster to a decision maker. This flexibility can also be seen in my design work where I am capable of any task, be it multimedia, branding or print.
