Abraham Rivera

Los Angeles, CA, USA
I am a Graphic Designer and Art Director who builds visual tools for marketing. With over 10 years experience, my approach to design is simple – create fluid design with an ease that is eye-catching and true to the brand. My clients have mostly been within the field of entertainment (KCRW Radio, Capitol Records/EMI Music and IFC to name a few). However, my techniques may be applied with success in all industries. My strengths are layout design, branding, typography, photography and I am a good collaborator. Being creative with a keen eye for detail is a way of life and my passion.
