I am a senior designer with 15 years experience in Advertising in South Africa (Cape town) and has worked with overseas clients before. We simply dropsend or u send it files after artwork has been signed off. I would like to build up a relation with overseas clients due to our rates being more affordable. I have worked on portfolio's like Innoxa skincare, furniture, international underwear and jewellery clients. I can conceptualize on my feet and take great pride in my work. I take deadlines seriously and produce high quality work. Furthermore, I have art direction experience and styling in photography and can conceptualize great campaigns keeping in mind the marketing demographics. My other fields of expertise is print production experience and how to set up for print. My photoshop qualities are exceptional and I can enhance any photo or image without it looking unnatural. Attention to detail is one of my strong points. I hope to hear from you soon Kind regards Annelle
