Who am I & What do I do?

Hello my name is Catherine Paukszta and I am an ambitious and creative Vanier Student Graphic Artist and Freelance Graphic Designer. I am currently finishing a technical degree in Office Systems Technology: MicroMedia at Vanier College. I am seeking a full-time position as a junior graphic designer.

As a third-year MicroMedia student, I have developed many graphic design, communication, video editing and web skills using mainly Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro and many other Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Suite programs. I have also acquired great knowledge of HTML and CSS with a base in Javascript. I have also taken a photography class where I have acquired camera and photo editing skills.

I consider myself an energetic, efficient, strategic thinker and leader who thrives on challenges. As a Dean’s Honour Roll student I have acquired great time management skills. I guarantee to have all projects done on time, follow the process and make sure you are satisfied with the results. I am not afraid to take initiative for projects beyond expectations. For instance, my weekly customized signage increases sales for Fromagerie Des Nations!

During my years at the college, I have worked as a Student Graphic Arts Technician for Vanier College recreating the International Education booklet based on their style guide. Since September 2017, I have worked as a Freelance Graphic Designer for the Montreal apparel company VARA where I have learned company branding, different printing techniques and working with budgets. In addition to my three years of graphic design studies, I have also developed good customer and communication skills through working at Fromagerie Des Nations.

I enjoy creating exceptional print graphic design, impactful advertisements and quality apparel designs. I always make sure to produce memorable branding. I am eager to gain hands-on experience in the field and to contribute what I have learned to your organization. Work with me to bring all your ideas to life and align with your imagination!
