I’m Malou, I am a allround designer, I’m 31 years old and currently looking for a new job. I’m graduated as a Allround DTP-designer, However though the years I also worked as a Graphic Designer. Even if I didn’t always work at a company as a designer I still did do some freelance jobs to be able to fill up my portfolio time by time.
Even if I don’t live in Japan I do design for a few people over there. At the beginning a friend helped me with Japanese, currently those people I work with are alright with less formal Japanese. I’m still busy to learn Japanese, however I really need to find time to sit down and to learn it. But I never had any problem with any work I had made. All works I made for my Japanese customers also are printed in Japan. Also that never caused any problem, all products looked perfect.
Which I am totally happy about! It’s great to see my work also in Japan!
Anyway, of course I also worked for a few Dutch companies, as for my Internships and my current job, sadly my work contract of my current job won’t be extended due changes within the company. So I hope that someone want to hire me as a designer, Freelance is also alright! Designing is also a hobby of me.
Sadly I don’t have a BA degree, however through the years I gained lots of high experience.
Maybe you already have clicked around my portfolio, but if you didn’t I hope you will enjoy to discover everything I’ve created.
Be always free to contact me. I’m always happy to help out! Even if it’s only for 1 time. The Price is always arguable!
Hopefully I can mean something for your company.
I’m looking forward for any response.
Thank you for reading,
