I am Nito (Miguel Angel) a Graphic and Web Designer based in Miami, Florida. I have more than 10 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 in Miami, 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 organic food restaurant.
In early 2011, I became a Graphic Designer for Discount Mugs, Inc., a large promotional item company located in Medley, Florida, this was like bootcamp, since jobs had to be turned around as fast as possible without mistakes, client orders were usually contained large quantities and tight deadline.
After a year and a half of working at Discount Mugs, I was hired by Pow! Inc., a boutique agency based in Little Havana, Florida. I worked there for about 7 years. Pow! is were I learned the most, my University, I worked on a wide variety of projects from business cards, flyers, brochures, to advertisements, websites and complete branding. On a few occasions, I even had to paint, assemble, and install a few signs.
My following stop was at PF-Solutions, aka Print Farm, there I provided preflight services to specific projects, I made last minute adjustments and occasional changes, in order to achieve a smooth production and high quality print. I also assisted them in their website transition from Print Farm to PF-Solutions.
I am currently here, iamnito.com, working as a freelancer. So if you have a nice project for me, do not hesitate to contact me.
