The technological world is structured very similarly to a natural environment; survival of the fittest, where the most adaptable reign. When it comes to design, the same applies. It’s a process of evolution; having the ability to mold to the latest techniques, styles and function. To be able to stand out from the rest, you have to understand the environment that surrounds you. CM has become a part of that natural progression of the technological world, engulfing ourselves in the unique designs we create, as well as learning from those others produce. CM designs embody nature, herself… organic, living, evolving.
I have worked on clients such as Citgo Light Oils and Lubricants, Funjet Vacations, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines. My main responsibilities include website design projects, Flash banner design and animation, weekly e-mail creation, content integration, etc...
