Welcome

ABOUT

Design, Branding, Strategy & Marketing

Hey there! My name is Valerie but most people call me Val. I am a passionate, driven individual with a unique, versatile background in both marketing and design.

I graduated in 2008, in the middle of the economic recession. After few call backs and little-to-no leads, I applied for a ‘hostess’ job at a start-up restaurant in town. Times were tough and, at that point, I was willing to be working anywhere. Little did I know this was the beginning of my career in Marketing & Design.

Since then, I've added Graphic Designer, Art Director and Marketing Director to my resume. Each one of those experiences has helped shaped me into the number-loving perfectionist that I am today.

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” –Søren Kierkegaard
