    TOP RATED Graphic Designer | UI/UX | Website | Badass Creative

    Argentina - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 5

    TOP RATED!! Since 1985 designing and coaching companies of all sizes and industries. My passion and dedication have been rewarded with 26 international awards, Including New York and London Festivals. From everlasting logo design to the most complex UX mock ups and UI crafting, I am as enthusiastic as the first day. I am detail oriented (very picky) and deadline driven. I add value to my work by providing new insights, vision and ideas. I see the big picture even when clients assign me a very specific detail of a work. I am a natural out-of-the-box thinker and creative problem solver. Before applying a traditional method I push the boundaries to let the innovation gain terrain. HIRE ME NOW! You will never let me go! Do it before I become more expensive!
