Hi, I'm Miah (pronounced like Maya) but I also go by Mai for short. I just graduated with my Masters in Media Design. I've been working as a professional designer since my undergrad days. I'm a strong believer in lifelong learning. There is always a new skill we can hone or something new we can teach ourselves. The opportunity for self-improvement is always present. Through my experience, I've learned a lot about Adobe Creative Suite. In particular, I've found that Adobe InDesign has a unique flexibility that allows designers to complete a diversified set of tasks and assignments. Want to self-publish a book? InDesign has the tools that will allow you to layout the text and design the cover, all in the same application. Want to vectorize your logo concept? You can do that in InDesign, too! Want to create an animatic? That's right, you guessed it... That's all possible in InDesign. If you have an interest in InDesign or have any other design questions, please feel free to pick my brain. I look forward to (virtually) meeting you.+ Read More

As my mentor, he taught me a lot of design strategies and skills. In addition to print media, I also designed websites, electronic marketing campaigns, and social media management.+ Read More
