A little about myself...
I am a Canadian multi-disciplined freelance designer currently based in Montreal. With a focus on information design (user experience and user interface design for websites and mobile applications), I create visual communication graphics and strategies across various media, from conception to production. I work with clients of all sizes and from diverse sectors, both locally and internationally, and I am supported by a network of talented collaborators and suppliers. I specialise in branding, editorial design, web design and concept development. I always aim to produce a high standard of design that is driven by bold creative thinking.
I have just completed an MA in Information design at the University of Reading, near London in the United Kingdom. I also hold a BFA in Design and Computation Arts from Montreal's Concordia University. I currently work as a part-time freelancer, and a part-time lecturer at Ahuntsic College.
Why work with a freelance designer instead of a design agency?
A growing number of clients prefer hiring a freelance designer to working with a design agency. This is due to several main benefits. The biggest benefit being that the work delivered by a skilled freelance designer can be exactly the same as the one you would get from an agency, but at a fraction of the price. This is mainly because freelancers have fewer overheads! Besides, more and more agencies are relying on freelancers to get the work done. By hiring a freelance designer, you also get to work much more closely with your designer, instead of relaying your project instructions and requirements through an account manager.
