GEORGE A. TODOROFF – GRAPHIC & WEB DESIGNER
My objective is to obtain challenging and rewarding work that will utilize my creativity and strong graphic design skills. I'm a creative, dedicated graphic designer seeking a full-time position within a company that will utilize and further enhance my knowledge in graphic design. I am creative, dependable, and highly organized with a strong sense of design and type. I am experienced in all types of visual design, from print ads to web design and everything in between. I’m also able to work efficiently from inception to completion under any type of stress, and maintain a keen eye for attention to detail. I strive to solve any challenge creatively and effectively, and am able to work both independently and in group situations while maintaining a solution oriented attitude.
Freelance Graphic Designer
June 2009 to present
Starting while in college, I began working as a freelance graphic designer. I work for a wide variety of clients, which has taught me how to handle the specific and contrasting needs of different people and projects. Doing freelance work has also shown me the importance of time management, and how to manage multiple projects at the same time. I have also learned the importance of building strong relationships with clients. Perhaps most importantly, I’ve developed a much stronger graphic design sense which helps me to deliver a quality product to each and every client I take on.
