Hello, my name is Elisa Siciliano, I hold a Master’s Degree in Visual Communication Design and Multimedia. During my studies, I participated in an internship where I became proficient in web design and content management with the main design tools. Also, working as a freelance graphic designer, I overcame many challenges like conceptualization and executed a very successful advertising campaign following projects from concept design to print. I have a strong eye for detail and color, and so my main goal is to develop visually appealing solutions that are also accessible and useful for everyone. I follow assiduously design trends and I am interested in blogging, illustration and, social media. Thank you, and this is my CV and portfolio.
