    Hi there! :) Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. I'm a graphic designer with a degree in the field from CSUS (California State University, Sacramento). I specialize in (but not limited to) Print Layout, Pre-press (setting files up for the printers), packaging as well as the creation & layout of interactive Apple Newsstand magazines for the iPad. I have 10 years experience in graphic design. Four of them were spent working for an international company as a Text & Layout Assistant. My primary responsibilities were: design of packaging labels, updating catalogs in different languages, setting up all design work to print-ready format and communicating with the printers until completion. Since then, I have worked as an independent designer and have had the opportunity to work in many different areas of design; from tedious typesetting work to more creative work like logos, interactive magazines or flash web banners. I'm based in France but my English is excellent having had the chance to experience and follow my education in two countries with completely different cultures; France and the US (California). Being bilingual also allows me to do translation work from English > French & French > English in my spare time. 3 of my best qualities: -Reliable -Good communicator -Perfectionist Software of choice: Adobe CS6 & Mag+ plugin (for iPad) Please feel free to view my online portfolio here : www.eclipsegraphix.fr I am available to chat on Skype (and have a working mic).
