I’m here to make things look pretty and recognizable
Hello! I am Machu, a professional Graphic Designer, living at Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. I have successfully directed and implemented various designs from conception to launch, and have worked closely with a variety of businesses, social media projects, and brands. My core strength lies in my capability to adapt to new technology and innovative processes while ensuring total compliance with required corporate standards.
Address: Aiswarya, I.B.P.O, Alappuzha, India
Date of Birth: 02 March 1973
I am a designer who has a thorough grasp on contemporary design trends and practices. With an experience in graphic design spanning more than a decade, I mainly focus on designing magazines, newspaper layouts, logos, brochures, book covers, and just about everything in between.
The greatest advantage I hold proudly is that I am interested in just about everything on the web, and believe in building systems, no just layouts. This has translated to the creation of fine-tuned, flexible and functional websites in various platforms to support the business requirements of clients over the past 4 years.
More than 10 years of experience in the design industry. With a strong background in visualizing ideas from start to completion, I have achieved a high rate of success in executing concepts related to design and layout for newspapers, magazines, webpages, social media projects and books, in a highly innovative manner. I also consider myself to be adept at leveraging and combining all media to promote a brand. I believe in viewing problems from the user and consumer point of view and crafting solutions that gives emphasis to brand value, experience design and technology.
