Matias Alasagas Jr

Freelance Graphic Designer

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I am a versatile and creatively driven freelance Graphic Designer based in Toronto, Canada, and Manila, Philippines. I take pride in the work I do and always strive to create the best looking finished product that I can. I don't settle for short cuts or the easy option and I never say 'that'll do' when I know something could be better. When it comes to cover design I don't swap out some information on a template I have bought, I put everything together myself from scratch.

My portfolio is a diverse selection ranging from more corporate looking styles to full on artistically pleasing pieces.

I have spent almost 15 years working in the industry at various design studios and printing companies so you can be confident that I know what I'm doing, I even have good ties with print companies I have worked for and can find good deals with them.

Whether you need printed work in the book cover, interior book, children's book, audiobook, CD/DVD cover, posters, flyers, business cards, etc, web design like e-commerce or just a logo designing than I can help you.
