During my 12 years’ experience in graphic and web design, office administration, translating, content writing, marketing and customer service, I have had the pleasure to work in many fields and particularly in the fashion and jewellery industries with numerous accomplishments. I worked with major brands including Vogue, Chanel, Cartier, Versace, Brosway and was involved in main international events such as the Vicenza Gold Fair, the Gemological Institute of America’s Symposium in San Diego, the CAPE conference in Lancaster, the glass and stone fairs in Milan and Dusseldorf as well as many others across the world. I am proficient in the use of various PC software including MS Office and Adobe Suite. Moreover, I am fluent in English and Italian. I also posses a decent Spanish and have recently commenced a basic German course. I have extensive experience in both multimedia and print elaborates as I participated in the creation of logos, magazines, trend-books, newsletters, marketing material, catalogues, advertisements, video-shows, websites and interactive presentations. In addition, I am familiar with the most relevant social networks and their potential in promoting businesses as well as other main online platforms such as Google Adwords. Furthermore, I have also had experience in the very first phases of the designing process: from research to sketches, photography and on throughout the whole production pipeline up to the final product. While being self-motivated, I am also known as a team player. I believe in straight forward cooperation as it brings the best results for the business and consequently for everyone’s career. Meeting deadlines and working under pressure is what I’m accustomed to. I am goal-oriented in order to ensure the clients’ requirements are translated into successful products.
