Experience

Willer Design

graphic designer :: 2012-present

I'm a freelance graphic designer in the San Francisco Bay area. I love working with startups and projects I can get passionate about. For the past year I've been blessed to work wtih quite a few companies that have some kind of design sense, and know the importance of good design. Most projects have been web based, have some kind of responsive design element, and sometimes have a tablet or mobile-first emphasis. This past year has been pretty good:)
