Background

I am a Product Designer & Packaging - 3D Structural & Graphics - with an Industrial Design Degree. I am currently working as a Packaging Designer at SQ Professional, a company specialist in kitchenware based in London that export across Europe, Africa and the Middle East. I am in charge of the graphic packaging design of new the products, looking always for a modern and innovated design.

My previous jobs in the UK were working as a Freelance Conceptual Artist for The Kew Gardens for The Orchid Festival and a Graphic Designer freelance for Kinnerton Confectionery, a company that creates different kind of products products for M&S, Tesco, & for their own brands working with licenses including Paw Patrol, Peppa pig among others.
My first job experience in the UK was as a Graphic Designer at Fastsigns, a company that produce visual communication products for different companies around UK, being in charge of all of the Graphic Design Projects for the UK clients.

From 2009 to 2014 I was working in Colombia for international companies within the Design, Packaging & Toys markets.

Two years as a Toy Designer for a Board Game Company working with licenses including Sanrio, Disney, Nickelodeon. After that I worked as a Packaging design and Moulds Production Manager at Pulpack Ltda., a company that produces moulded pulp packaging. I would like to continue my career working with licenses, as it is something which interests me and it s a part of my previous experience which I found rewarding.

I can bring these skills to the Design environment and use my knowledge of team management and the people skills I gained from my role as an Industrial Design manager to benefit the company and the brand. I am also an artist and I have been working on my own projects in London and Europe then my creativity can bring ideas from a different perspective, culture and country.

Between my 2 passions Art & Design I want to continue motivating people to work in what the love to do.

Good! Vanessa was really easy going and had knowledge in illustrator. I wanted to learn how to do specific tasks and she was happy to show me and made it easy for me to follow.
I definitely plan to have a few more classes to polish my skills.
