Hello, my name is Andres and I am a freelance graphic designer working off Munich, who offers high quality design and personalized consulting. I take on external or in-house projects either for design agencies or any individual/company needing design.

Education & Interests

I hold a degree of Visual Communication from the Ontario College Of Art & Design. Additionally, I earned a certificate in Digital Publishing & Imaging from Toronto Image Works and have taken part in several seminars/courses on photography, advertising, typography and web trends.

Over the last 14 years I have gained experience working at different companies as a graphic designer in North America, South America and Europe. The exposure to living in different regions of the world has had a decisive influence on my ability to design for various markets and be open to diverse viewpoints and scopes.

Taking advantage of the impressions and language proficiency gained from living and traveling in different places, I decided a few years back to take this to a professional level and got enrolled in a school for translation and interpreting in the city of Munich, the focus was on economy interactively between English, German and French. The program was completed successfully.

I am fluent in German, English, Italian and Spanish and have a solid knowledge of French.

Apart from design, languages and technology I am also very much interested in philosophy, psychology and intercultural communication. When I am not working on design projects I am most likely traveling, running, reading about new subjects, listening to music or enjoying the company of family and friends. I am also into photography in an artistic context and I have had a few exhibitions in the South of Germany, Toronto and Montreal.

Additional Design Expertise & Main Focus

12 years experience in the creation of information graphics and charting systems for the financial industry. Also, I am currently the main freelance designer of a respected print magazine on stock market news and research of financial products (mainly in the areas of ETFs, commodities, futures, bonds, funds and indices).

My design experience has been primarily with the financial industry, E-Commerce and news/entertainment portals (i.e. GMX.de). However, I have done work for several other industries and sectors.
