Company descriptionFive by Five Design specializes in branding businesses in the profit and non-profit sectors. I work within your budget to visually communicate your message.
Why am I an RGD?It is important to have a professional designation especially when teaching at the college level. The RGD Association gives graphic designers an edge against the competition by recognizing their schooling, skills, and years of experience in the profession.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?I had waited over a decade to present my portfolio in Toronto to the Board of RGD. I was very nervous. I framed my certificate afterward because I was so proud of it! It currently hangs in my studio as proof of my professionalism.
Why am I a designer?I am a communicator who is happiest when presented with a unique challenge to solve creatively.
Why should you hire me?I enjoy meeting new clients and listening to their business goals. I look for solutions outside the box and have a diverse skill set to bring to the table. I help my clients shine and stand out from their competition.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?Either teaching again at the college level or a manager in communications. I will always keep my Five by Five Design business on the side. It keeps me in touch with the current creative trends.
