Hartford, CT, USA
My name is Yesenia Carrero. I am a conceptual graphic designer with experience in print and web applications. With my strong design and illustration skills, I bring on-trend and innovative solutions to each project I take on. I enjoy working to help clients express themselves through my talents.

My past experience includes Hallmark Cards, designing heartfelt cards for holiday seasons, corporate branding projects for start-up business organizations, and an internship at BFG Communications where I contributed to projects like Camel Cigarettes' 99th Birthday campaign. I am an alumni of Savannah College of Art & Design, graduating with honors in 2011.

I love what I do and I find inspiration everywhere. My positive attitude and experience designing in teams, or on my own, make working with me easy and enjoyable.

I am a friendly designer interested in opportunities to hone my creative skills.
