Lisa Bella Dae's Summary

Graphic design, front-end web design, interface design and visual business strategy for all digital marketing. Currently freelancing full time with different groups, and seeking opportunities to work on with longer-term projects and collaborations. I am a champion of the user experience, establishing visual hierarchy, brand voice, strategy, and simplifying complexity.

I have a lot of experience working in adventure sports, e-commerce design, and entrepreneurial start ups. I excel with strategic thinking (where design and business goals intersect), ux / user-centric design, and creative problem solving with a business mindset. I am interested in design that is clean, modern, energetic, and differentiated that fits the company and builds the brand. I study the competition, I dig deep to get to know the companies I work for and the motivations of the end user.

Information technology is dynamic, constantly changing, and an incredible industry to be a part of.
