Design to Impact
I’m a freelance creative director with 8+ years of experience in designing print media. Throughout my career, I have been on the academic side, the corporate side, and the agency side of work. Hence, I understand the needs, expectations, and limitations in these worlds. I have been engaged with providing creative direction, writing services, and marketing initiatives to various corporate clients and publicity agencies. From branding to public relations, I have worked with public and private sectors including education, communication, finance, direct marketing, lifestyles, home and property development, food and beverage industry, hardware manufacturers, news media, digital and mobile technology, and nonprofit organizations.
