A Brief Timeline
I graduated magna cum laude with my Bachelor’s degree from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, a top-graded thesis archived within the school halls, and an award-winning final exhibit.
Shortly before graduating, I landed my first stable clients through a friend. I served lead designer for Maddington Consulting, a company in New York that aimed to help startups break into their industries, and Burning Midnight, a full-featured design studio also based in New York.
Print design, web design, illustration, game design, leadership
I started working for an SEO company in Manila. It was here that I learned a bit about search engine optimization. I also began to understand the concept of user experience, even if I didn’t know the term back then, and how to incorporate it into design for websites and web applications.
I even learned how to develop sites using WordPress, after the CEO let me tinker unsupervised with one of their new websites — which resulted in me redesigning and developing three of the company’s brand sites.
Web design, user interface design, user experience, WordPress development
I entered a company that promised to change the landscape of marketing and advertising through data mining and their complex ecosystem of platforms. (It didn’t, but that’s beside the point.)
Here I worked with people who dabbled in machine learning, opening my eyes to just how intricate and endless the possibilities of web and mobile application interface design could be when combined with advanced data visualization.
User interface design, user experience, mobile app design
I quit the corporate world to focus on DevWerkz clients and growing the business full-time. We position ourselves as an on-call team that can address the design and development needs of our local and international clients.
Leadership, project management, creative direction, user interface design, user experience, website design, mobile app design, email marketing, sales funnel creation, social media advertising, and basic accounting (cause you gotta do what you gotta do for your business)
