Hello there, My name is Maxi, and if I can describe myself, I would probably say, "optimistically impulsive," but that is mostly what my friends and family say about me. I am a recent graduate at Cal State University Dominguez Hills, with my degree in Graphic Design with at least three years of experience as a freelance designer. In the 5+ years that I have been a student, I have gained experience in the classroom and have used it in the professional field. I was a Community Service Officer ... [more]
I have take Prepress at my university as a graduation requirement. I understand the basics of inDesign and have used them to create booklets and pamphlets for class and for my internship. I have created a song lyrics booklet, an informational on the history of the iPhone, and a children's booklet for a project at school and have created educational documents and booklets for my internship using inDesign.
I am a recent graduate at Cal State University Dominguez Hills, with my degree in Graphic Design. I am a self starter and self motivated. As a result, when I was first introduced to a Macintosh, I easily played with it and explored its many contents. When I entered the university, I had to learn to use all the Adobe programs using a Mac. I learned the different keyboard commands and how to navigate and organize all my files. Learning all these tricks, I managed to translate Mac language to PC. I would help my friends learn the Mac and translate the keyboard commands to the PC and eventually help my boyfriend understand his Macbook Pro when he stopped going to his Apple classes.
I have been using Microsoft Publisher ever since I was a high school student. I was a JROTC cadet and in charge of creating a newsletter reporting everything the battalion did from school events to school visits and even city and state competitions. After graduating high school and entering college, I first used it to create flyers and other forms of literature because I didn't have Photoshop or any of the other design programs. Publisher was my first design program until I started taking my major classes in my third year of college. During my third year, some of my friends needed help learning Publisher since they didn't have access to Photoshop so I helped them out free of charge (or I got a free lunch out of it) to create small flyers.
Graphic Design is my major at Cal State University Dominguez Hills and I will receive my Bachelors in December. I have experience working as a freelance designer as well as working for a company. I also have an internship in Graphic Design and I am currently the main artist partnered up with Mario Williams.
