Nice to meet you...
Nice to meet you, my name is Alessandra Ferragina and I’m a graphic designer based in Italy, I have a Bachelor degree of three-years in Industrial Design and a Master of Arts degree of two-years in Visual and Multimedia Communication. I want to work in the fields I love: graphic design, illustration and photography; in particulars I’m looking for an international creative agency to make an abroad job experience, because I love living in new places and facing new challenges. As a graphic designer I’m good at using the Adobe Design package softwares: Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash and Premiere. Moreover I’m able to manage editorial layout and vectorial illustration, I can work in the production and post-production of videos and photos too; as a graphic designer and illustratore I’m collaborating with a creative design blog www.creazina.it (a young collective of Italian designers). I have a personal deep passion for photography, both artistic and commercial ones: I followed courses-stage and I applied at different contests, I’d like to apply myself as a photographer, sooner or later. In conclusion, under the web design knowledge, I can say that I have a basic experience using html, golive, css, but most of all wordpress. I can speak a fluent English and I’m familiar with Spanish. At the moment I’m working as a graphic designer at the fashion brand GasJeans in its head quarter in Vicenza, north of Italy: my usual tasks are developing graphics for advertising campaign, promotional and events materials (invitations, t-shirts, windows poster and visual merchandising), web content (like newsletter and banner graphics), preparing presentations for the marketing and the communication department, editing catalogues (fitguide and shopping-guide and preview show materials) and more. In my free-time I make no-profit works for no-profit association, in particular I’m working to a project for the reconstruction of the town of Italy affected by the flood on October ( you can know more looking at the blog I made about: www.ricreaimo.wordpress.com ). If you want to know more about me and my works please contact me, Have a nice day,
