Rebeccah Kahn

Graphic Designer

San Diego, CA, USA
High quality layout, design and digital illustration services on independent contracts. Developed my creative skills to suit the needs of several types of professionals and small businesses in various industries. Self regulation, creative problem solving skills and time management are some essential functions I acquired though this type of work.

Progression, perfection and a thirst for awe are the driving factors of my developing success. To pro-actively connect consumer understanding and inspiration through my mind’s eye is what I understand best. My goal is to be a valued asset for cutting edge, top-notch artwork and design that exceeds the expectations of ambitious clients and companies.
