Ruben Rodriguez

Graphic Designer + Brand Consultant

Raleigh, NC, USA
I'm a 32 years old Creative Director & Freelance Designer from Fayetteville, NC currently based in Raleigh, NC. I love everything that has to do with Graphic Design & Brand Development, Web Layout, Packaging, User Experience and I feel a true devotion for typography.

I have 8 years of experience working as a freelancer and recently designing for a design studio. I feel I’m ready to take my talents to a higher exposure. I love working with people, especially if they have the same passion I have for what they do.
