I am a Graphic Designer/Creative Artworker with more than 10 years of experience in printed media. I am passionate about design, typography and, in particular, Mac systems. I am excellent in Adobe Creative Suite CS4/CS5/CS6/CC (Indesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, and Photoshop.) Brainbench Certified Master User in Adobe InDesign CS5.5. Transcript ID#: 327612. Date: 2013-06-11. Scored higher than 97% of all previous test takers. I am also, if necessary, expert user in QuarkXPress. I speak more than 7 languages (fluent in English, Russian and Latvian). I feel this is a strong advantage. I have the ability to take a brief, successfully develop my ... designs laterally with creative vision, produce accurate print ready artwork or eBook, work within deadlines and project manage work through to completion.I have worked with major brands such as M&M;, Mars, Snickers, Whiskas, Lipton, Merrild, Sheba, Samsung, Tramontina, HP, L'Oreal, Lancome, Renault, Mazda, Jaguar and Adidas. My skillset includes creating corporate identities, logotypes, stationery, brochures, annual reports, magazines, catalogues, flyers, business cards, posters, and presentations for exhibitions and events and I have extensive experience working both B2B and B2C. Although, I have worked on the creative end of producing ads, I currently enjoy taking creative works and fastidiously preparing them for production. I feel that I have the advantage because I have worked on both ends of this process.
