Victoria (Vicky) Valdovinos
Digital design has been a passion of mine since the age of 12, and I have honed my skills. It’s been a remarkable journey watching technology change over the last 20 years and being able to adapt to those changes. It’s great when I learn new things, and there are many opportunities to do so in this technological world.
I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years! From yearbook editor to production manager at a real estate tech company, I’ve been a full-time graphic designer for 10+ years and a website developer for 5+ years. I’m self-taught in html/css. I’ve worked in many areas of design which include but are not limited to the following; print design, logos, branding, packaging, and websites.
