Hello! My name is Mariko, and I am a graphic designer.
Art has always been a staple in my life, but love of design was sparked while designing ads for student groups and laying out a bi-weekly publication when I attended SUNY Binghamton. After graduating with a Bachelors in Studio Art and Sociology, I headed home to Long Island and Briarcliffe College to further understand the graphic design field and earn an additional degree in Graphic Design.
Working professionally since 2003, I have been fortunate to work with a wide variety of clients. Experience at a design studio enabled me to work alongside other designers and become proficient with print and familiar with web projects. My current staff position as a graphic designer in a fast-paced print shop has given me in-depth knowledge of print production while keeping up creatively working with my clients to develop design pieces that will meet their functional needs while adding an aesthetic sense to their existing vision.
