I am Nito (Miguel Angel) a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in Miami, Florida. I have more than 5 years experience in the field, as an in-house and freelance designer.
During my school years, I always stood out for having very organized and colorful projects, incorporating color to make them interesting. Hands-on projects were always my favorite. Every year I took an art class, from Fabrics & Fibers to Drafting Technology courses. I received my Associates of Science Degree in Graphic Design Technology from Miami-Dade College, in 2010.
During my last semester in college, I got a job as a Junior Graphic Designer at Harmony Signs, Inc. A small sign shop located in Westchester, Florida. Working at Harmony Signs I learned about file preparation, printing and also designing vinyl signs and installations. During this time I also started doing freelance work, I recall my first job was re-designing menus for a local restaurant and then printing it.
In early 2011, I became a Graphic Designer for Discount Mugs, Inc., a large promotional item company located in Medley, Florida, this was like a bootcamp, since jobs had to be turned around as fast as possible without mistakes, client orders were usually very large and with a tight deadline.
After a year and a half, I moved to Pow! Inc., a boutique agency based in Little Havana, Florida. At Pow! Inc. is were I have learned the most, I have worked on a wide variety of projects from business cards, flyers and brochures, to advertisements, websites and complete branding. On a few occasions, I have even had to paint, assemble, and install a sign or two.
I enjoy learning new techniques, illustrating, building things (not limited to repairing things around the house), during my free time what I enjoy the most is spending time with my wife and daughters.
