I am a brand visual identity consultant specializing in lettering design and typography. Each of my projects is done creatively with unique ideas analyzed from a marketing standpoint for the best visual representation that is practical for business improvement. My wide range of skills and experience allows me to apply identity designs to various applications including logo, color design, promotional materials, packaging, illustrations, web design and development, e-newsletter, data sheets, annual report, print collateral, and motion graphics.

Currently, I am working full-time at Walt Disney Imagineering. A small side project may be accepted if time permits.

I hold a permanent residency of the United States and have legal status to work with no limit in any place within the U.S. and Thailand.
