ABOUT Jared

profilePic_socials.png

My name is Jared Verdejo. I decided to pursue digital media and design as a career. I am certified in Professional Technical Communication, Multimedia Communications, and Graphic Design. I focused my coursework in the study of typography, layout, web development, and printing production. My educational background comes from the best community college in Illinois: College of Lake County, Grayslake, IL.



​​I AM A CREATIVE STRATEGIST

I love to write. I develop social media series, video content, blog posts, and structured design plans. No project is too grand. One of the benefits of working with me is that I am on-call 24/7 and flexible. I love to work with my clients 1-on-1 to build effective communication and a relationship with all my clients.

​I AM AN ARTIST
Before anything else, I am an artist. My passion is creating. I have been freelancing for over 5 years. It all started with selling my drawings and paintings. I learned along the way that I have a calling towards digital marketing and decided I would use my graphic design skills to help others. Even if I can't make something work, I have a network of supportive creatives who always support my business.
