Deborah M.

Designer Freelance | Remote | Europe

 

Hi there!

My name is Deborah but I prefer people to call me Debbie. I was born in Porto, Portugal, but I expend my life traveling around the world.

I am passionate about graphic design/illustration with a variety of skills developed during my last 7/8 years as a professional.

I am specialized in branding and illustration but I also work as a UX/UI designer, photography, marketing, and creating content for social media.

My passion for photography makes me see the details of the world in a different way that gives inspiration for my jobs.

I am always looking for new and exciting design roles. If you are looking for an artist with my set of skills don’t hesitate  to send me an email at debora@enlaceartdesign.com
