My professional background.
Over 10 years of agency hopping, I've worn many hats sometimes befitting and sometimes not. From multi-national food brands to international financial services, mid-size companies to small independent shops, I've worked multiple roles for brands of all sizes and contributed to projects at various stages.
Brand Designer. Art Director. Environmental Designer. Web Designer. Copywriter. Janitor. Dishwasher. Pizza Deliverer. It might not sound as sexy as say, a photographer nor as authoritative as say, a creative director. Regardless, at my core, I'm a Graphic Designer. Jack of all trades. Master of some.
design with intent
As a Graphic Designer, I enjoy solving problems related to visual communication. Before I start doodling or creating an artboard, I think about Design and how it can:
- Accommodate company/business goals
- Reflect brand strategy
- Meet budget expectations
From a team-side, I work collaboratively with core members. No bickering, no politics, just straight-up, solid, exceptional work. So, if some of my rambling resonates with what you're looking for, feel free to contact me.
By the way, it's pronounced "Mang" but if you mispronounce my name, no harm no foul.
