THE DESIGNER AND CREATIVE KNOWN AS AMMNA

– Vänligen se nedan för Svenska

I am a talented artist with a unique set of experiences and skills including promotional graphics as well as art and design. I have designed creative and innovative design solutions for many different areas within the design field such as advertising, branding, web, print, media and the charity sector. However my forte has always been with print design; designing everything from single sided A5 leaflets to 8-fold leaflets, catalogues, brochures, roll-up banner ads, amongst others.

 

I am vigilant when it comes to delivering the proposed project on time and from start to finish. It is the best way I work, by setting out a time schedule for myself to make sure I am able to complete all projects desired by the time they are due. I love working with teams and other members of staff, it always helps with the design aspect and creates a stronger bond between the staff and myself. One of my key philosophies is collaboration. I believe that by working as a team one can achieve the best possible results.

 

Growing up in Scandinavia, I have had the opportunity to understand and grow up with the unique clean-cut Scandinavian/Swedish art and design scene. I have also lived and worked in Japan, Italy and the USA, which has helped me gain design knowledge and expand my art, business, graphic, and creativity to another level. This is why having someone like myself, who has moved around and understood a world of design, would be a benefit.

 

I have a Masters degree in Graphic Design from Florence Design Academy, Florence, Italy. I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Branding and Promotion from the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK. Both degrees have given me the opportunity to understand presentation, design and style.

 

I am an expert in Adobe Creative Suite and have a very good understanding of design from a global perspective. I am completely fluent in English, Swedish and have conversational fluency in Japanese.

 

 

Svenska –

Jag är en mångsidig grafisk designer med unika erfarenheter och kunskaper när det kommer till promotional graphic, bild och design. Jag har designat kreativa och innovativa lösningar inom många olika områden i designbranchen såsom reklam, branding, webb, tryck, media och välgörenhet. Den senaste tiden har jag jobbat på Johnson & Johnson (UK & Nordics), huvudsakligen i läkemedelsbranchen. Några av mina företag jag har jobbat med är Nicorette, o.b., Regaine, Rogaine, Compeed, Listerine mm.

 

Mina styrkor är att jag är punktlig när det kommer till att leverera projekt i tid från början till slut och att jag är väldigt självständig i mitt arbete. Trots att jag är självständig så älskar jag att jobba i team och med andra arbetskamrater. Jag anser att det både hjälper ur ett designperspektiv och för att skapa ett starkare band mellan mig och resten av arbetsplatsen. En av mina nyckelfilosofier är samarbete. Jag anser att om man jobbar som ett team så uppnår man alltid högsta resultat.

 

Som jag skrev tidigare så är jag uppvuxen i Malmö. Vilket har hjälpt mig att förstå den unika stilrena designen som används här. Jag har även bott och jobbat i Japan, Italien, USA och i England, vilket har gett mig erfarenhet som har utvecklat min marknadsföringsstrategi, min grafiska design och hjälpt min kreativitet att nå en väldigt hög nivå. Det är det här som jag hoppas att jag ska kunna bidra med hos er.

 

Jag har en MA i Grafisk design från Florence design academy, Florens, Italien. Jag har en BA (HONS) in Branding and Promotion från universitetet i Central Lancashire, Preston, UK. Mina examen har hjälpt mig att förstå hur presentation, design och stil fungerar.

 

Jag är expert på Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator). Min tid utomlands har gett mig väldigt goda kunskaper ur ett globalt perspektiv. Jag är flytande i engelska, svenska och pratar japanska på konversationsnivå.
