Attributes that best describes:
I have an education background in Concept Art & Illustration and hold a Bachelor's degree in Communications and Design and, before running a design studio and print shop for 9 years, I had developed my skills over 10+ years in corporate sales. Through my experience, I have always kept in mind the importance of organizational processes and customer-oriented services.
My last work position was as a Graphic Designer / Sales Associate at Captain Printworks (www.captainprint.com), in Toronto, where I was responsible for the Invitations Department and had to perform tasks such as printing setups; customer service; graphic design & layout; portfolio; orientation and meetings with other companies and designers. I also had to deal on a daily basis with corporate clients and their short-deadline requests.
Previously, I have founded and operated a profitable invitation design studio and print shop for 9 years in Brazil - bricks-and-mortar and e-commerce. Together with my team of 5 graphic designers, I've accomplished steady growth and over 2.500 happy customers. I had been responsible for landing some great corporate customers such as Swarovski, Harper's Bazaar and the Olympic Committee. My company was selected to attend the National Retail Federation Congress in New York (2015) and meetings at Google, LinkedIn, Yahoo! and Facebook in the Silicon Valley (2015) due to its potential.
In 2016 I've sold the physical operation to a team of publicists and kept the brand and website, due to moving to Canada. I'm looking at this transition as an opportunity to keep developing my career and to connect with professionals of the area.
