Justin Abercrombie

Visual Designer

San Diego, CA, USA
What I strive to be is something more than I was the day before. My ambition and drive, as well as my experience with design, Adobe software, and adept computer skills enable me to be an effective designer. When I generate an idea, I won’t stop fine-tuning until it is something I am proud to put my name on. I am a punctual, articulate, clever, opinionated, and precise professional. My positive personality has been coined as infectious by those who work around me.
