About me

I am a creative designer I love to come up with ideas and I love to execute those ideas. I can work as part of a team yet I can be pro active to work alone and manage my time effectively. I am extremely passionate about anything Digital and I'm constantly seeking for inspiration on blogs, in books, though music, and films. My working process is made up of planning, learning, designing, executing, re-learning, re-designing, re-executing all this to get the best results for you. I am confident in producing high quality work and making sure it is on time and on brief. My work has ranged from designing responsive websites and online banner campaigns to online tools and graphics for campaign videos. Although my profession has mainly been in Digital I have often had the opportunity to contribute to 360 campaigns through brainstorming sessions.
