ABOUT JESSICA BLOCK-VALDEZ

 

 

I am graphic designer specializing in branding and print design. I develop the overall layout and design production for advertising, magazine and brochures. My designs are simple, clean, current and easy to communicate. I strive for excellence in every aspect of designing, I desire to create works that are relevant. My style varies for each project, which gives me the ability to work in any media, format, and concept that I feel best convey an idea. I feel that each design piece should communicate the company persona and what it stands for. Gaining this knowledge of their goals helps me to make effective designs. I like to improvise, adapt and overcome each design problem I am faced with. 

 

My background in design includes working for marketing agencies, athletics and in education. My background in teaching design allows me to clearly communicate my designs, as well as receive and implement feedback effectively.
