Maria Jose Aranda Morea

Sr Creative Designer & Illustrator

London, United Kingdom
Dedicated to graphic design for over 8 years, I have developed my career within the fashion industry enhancing brand connection through print and digital medium. My experience spans the spectrum of branding, packaging, editorial, illustration, textile design and more recently, marketing and ecommerce. I have delivered results time after time through artwork, presentations, brochures, look book/catalogs, mood-boards, packaging, mockups, planning photo shoots, window display/graphics, website ‘look & feel’. I work within the Adobe CS/CC framework.
My freelance experience has allowed me to develop good time efficiency and I frequently work on several projects at once without leaving any detail aside as I have a very organized and hardworking personality. I work well as part of a team as I compliment others and thrive on group spirit. I always keep an open mind to new ideas as I seek to capture the creative forces. I have a positive attitude, calmly confident but always open to recommendations. I’m as excited about my career today as I was the day I begun working on my first project.
