My name is Javier Herrera Ducker Novoa... too long, I know! So everyone calls me Jav. I am a graphic designer from Mexico City, now based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I have a passion for all things creative. I love to innovate; see things differently to come up with effective solutions. The areas of design I enjoy the most are corporate identity, editorial and advertising. I am enthusiastic and positive, reliable and supportive. A real team player.
