My name is Diana Graham.
I was born and raised near Charlotte, North Carolina, spent 5 great years in Boston and am now temporarily calling Brazil home! I am an American citizen, with Brazilian dual-citizenship. I recently made the big move to Brazil, to help establish an online presence for a small business. In the past few months, I have created a new website, re-branded company materials and launched a social media presence on Facebook and Instagram. I am also currently freelancing and learning new design skills. My personal goal while I am here is to strengthen my Portuguese!
I have been studying and working in graphic design for over twelve years, and graduated summa cum laude from East Carolina University with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2011. I also obtained my Web Design and Publishing certificate from the University of North Carolina in Charlotte in 2013. I am always looking for new challenges and experiences, and opportunities to learn new things. My work experience includes the publication and advertising industry, as well as business and brand identity design; including everything from logo design and business brochures to additional print applications. I also have experience in promotional business design, from banners and signs to most promotional items. My knowledge of the printing industry and experience working with external vendors allows me to design print-ready files to fit specific needs and budgets. I am proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite, having worked extensively with InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. I have recently been expanding my skills in animation and digital design. I have working knowledge of Lightroom, AfterEffects, Premier Pro and HTML and CSS.
I pride myself in my ability to learn new programs and tasks very quickly and work well in a team environment. If you have any questions, please email me anytime!
