🌟 Embracing Multicultural Connections, Seeking New Horizons

Hello incredible Elpha community,

I've always believed that the best environments for personal and professional growth are those that celebrate multicultural connections, encourage collaboration, and foster meaningful relationships. Reflecting on my journey, I'm grateful for the friendships and valuable lessons learned from my experiences, including the incredible team I was part of in my last role – an environment that thrived on shared knowledge, multicultural harmony, and a passion for constant learning and laughters. And it even had a prevalence of female presence, where working with men was a blast. 🌍👩💼💡

Transitioning from being on the receiving end of design within sales and marketing teams, I've emerged as a resourceful graphic designer who bridges the worlds of client needs, sales, and marketing with the realm of design. This unique perspective has empowered me to create designs that not only fulfill clients' requirements but also align seamlessly with sales and marketing strategies. This journey is one of continuous learning, where my commitment to growth fuels my creative exploration and innovation.

Yet, I was one of those professionals who was impacted by last year's layoffs in tech. I am not going to lie: it was very hard and it still is, but at least it brought me back into a nice freelancing journey. However, it's time for me to embark on my next chapter. I've had the privilege of crafting impactful designs for startups in the SaaS, Fintech, Real Estate sectors, and Creative Agencies, and I'm excited to contribute my skills to an organization that values remote work, work-life balance, general employees’ wellbeing, and a collaborative culture.

🚀 What I Bring to the Table:

  • A track record of producing compelling marketing materials that effectively communicate brand missions.
  • Proficiency in graphic design tools such as Adobe Creative Suite (including Firefly), Figma, and Canva.
  • A flair for translating strategic insights into impactful designs.
  • Multicultural teamwork, adaptability, and a passion for driving creativity and strategy fusion.
  • A drive for excellence, thanks to the ability to meet objectives efficiently and with precision.
  • A successful track record in remote work, bringing adaptability and collaboration to international teams.

🔍 What I'm Looking For:

I'm on the lookout for mid to senior-level roles as a Graphic Designer, Marketing Designer, or Visual Designer. Industries like SaaS, PaaS, and Fintech resonate with my experience, but I'm absolutely open to exploring new avenues. I'd be thrilled to continue this journey within a team that resonates with my values. It's also important to note that I am EU-based, and I'm seeking opportunities that either offer EU-based positions/are open to EU-based candidates or utilize a reputable third-party platform for global hiring EOR, such as Deel, Remote, or Lano.

💡 Embracing Growth and Crafting Success:

Now, I’m eagerly anticipating returning to an in-house design role, contributing to the success and growth of the next company I work with. My goal is to grow not only professionally but also in tandem with the company's journey. I would be immensely grateful for any DMs sharing fitting open roles, referrals, or simply the chance to network and exchange insights. Let's connect here on Elpha and explore how we can collaborate and support each other in our journeys.

Thank you for your incredible support!

Thank you so much, @iynna, for your support and the links you shared. I'll check them out one by one! I appreciate your time and insights.I regularly visit Elpha's job board, but it seems that most of the design-related roles are for Product Designers (understandably). I am also well aware that the biggest obstacle in my case is the location, as many US-based companies operating remotely can't hire outside the US. Nevertheless, I remain determined to overcome these challenges and explore fitting opportunities. Your encouragement is truly appreciated, and I'm excited to connect with this supportive community as we share our respective journeys. If you have any further suggestions or insights, please feel free to share. Thank you once again! 🙏🏻
