Name: Miguel Mendo
Current location: Brownsville, Tx
Who am I you ask? I'm basically a dude born and raised in Brownsville, TX. I attended and graduated from Texas State University-San Marcos with a bachelors in Communication Design. During my years there I got a little work experience working for 2 school newspapers doing things like layout designs, ad designs, and created some comic strips to add to the comic sections. I also made some designs for a campus organization that I was a part of. I live in Brownsville working as a freelance graphic/web designer (while I'm not working at my 8 to 5 job of course), and ready to serve anyone here in the area.
I am very familiar with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, and others. I can design custom logos, posters, websites, photo editing, business cards and more. I also use premade website templates (or CMS) usually from Joomla for websites used for adding news articles and various content.
There's a lot of new things coming out and to learn about as far as graphic design. I make sure to stay up to date on that and more. That way I can apply what I learn to any projects that I get.

There are plenty of sites online with helpful tips and tutorials for any designer who works with Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, and more. With the help of the "Stumble" feature on Firefox, I've been able to find some sites which have been useful to me.
