  • AboutOpen or Close

    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.
