I am a Brisk Individual
I don’t take life serious. I take life as a fun-learning experience. This journey allows me to have a great sense of humor with a creative mind that can achieve your expectations!

I think design, so that you can think business.

Something About Mari


Dog-Mother of 2, born and raised in New York City and now residing in New Jersey. Pursuing the arts was never a doubted question for me. I have always known that there was a place for me in this field. In 1995 I attended Pratt Institute and majored in Graphic Design and Communications. I graduated with an Associates Degree in 1997. I pursued my career as a Freelance Graphic & Web Designer.

I've designed marketing materials such as logos, brochures, posters, business cards, flyers and user friendly websites. Currently, I am utilizing the latest Creative Suite Collection designing prototypes that help in developing responsive websites through Twitter Bootstrap, working with html, css, less, javascript and Jquery. Learning the latest trends has always been a continuous goal. I am eager to learn more, so that I can contribute more.
