Chicago, IL, USA
My name is Blanca Cortes, I'm a bilingual graphic designer (Spanish and English) with strong illustration skills. I'm able to keep with multiple projects and meet deadlines. I have a lot of work experience with multiples projects of different scales. Additionally, I’m a highly motivated fast learner that would love the opportunity to help you with your next idea or grow of your company. I have a solid knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite for both PC and Mac and I like to convey ideas from a history and semantics points with a dash of pop culture and symbols to resolve projects. I believe that a good brand can be concise and beautiful. Additionally, I'm detail oriented and I have great communications skills. Always passionate about design, typography, pretty things and delicious food.
