I always challenge myself to produce inspiring graphics that exceed expectations. My skill is finding effective visualizations, making a point with or without words. I am comfortable working within a structured template, and I also exceed where there is a place for a creative solution. My experience has taught me a great deal about strategy, about how to understand the target audience and capture their attention.
