Hi, I'm Francesca, a graphic and web designer based in Amsterdam who loves to create great and responsive designs based on the client needs.

This is my portfolio, feel free to take a look to discover my skills, my past experiences, and something more about me.

I work in a Mac environment and my main tools are: Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign. Regarding my development skills, I have an excellent knowledge of CSS2/3, (x)HTML, HTML5, and I prefer to work in text mode with my editor of choice: Coda.

Although I have no in-depth studies on this matter, experience has led me to successfully implement small video projects with After Effects and banner ads in Flash.

I worked for both digital and advertising agencies, and I had the pleasure to work for brands like Bata, Volvo, Replay and Met, collecting memorable experiences that only international brands could give me.

However I dealt, as freelance, with small projects based on local realities and I learnt to manage my time according to the deadline but especially how to relate with the client's needs.

I do my best as web designer but I worked as graphic designer and I managed some typographic project in the past. Here some recent works:

When I'm not working I like to skate, hang out with friends usually with a cup of coffee (or tea) and a slice of cheesecake or just playing together some great RPG games. Sometimes, when I'm in the mood, I sketch funny short comics about life things.

I also love to travel, discovering new things and places. I like to treasure my memories with tickets, maps and tons of photos both on digital medium and something new but really "old fashioned" like polaroids, who reminds me my first approach with a camera (although I consider my Canon 500D a faithful traveling companion).

ps: I'm definitely a cat person.
