In short i am a creative problem solver with good taste and a softspot for data. As graphic designer I've had extensive work experience within various B2B and B2C sectors. This has given me a diverse skillset and a broad knowledge of different deliverables for both print and digital platforms. I am mostly skilled at maintaining, “gate-keeping” and extending visual identities as an in-house designer as well as ensuring unity across all corporate communications from a visual branding perspective. My focus as a designer is to translate complex ideas into easy-to-digest, creative visual stories. I aim to constantly maximize my output without compromising on the quality.
My programme skills include :

In addition, I have developed branding and marketing strategies for various concepts across a wide range of projects, which has equipped me to offer clients a full package of deliverables and services from beginning to end.
I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail.
