Despina Chaskari

I am a Toronto-based Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I am really passionate about Design. My goal is to learn something new every day as I go and to create memorable work that’s inspired by the values it represents. I always had an eye for art and design ever since I can remember myself. When I see a product, I see the idea behind it and try to figure out why it looks the way it does. When I see a company, I see its people, their work, their team effort. When I see a book, I see the story, the characters, I see the person who wrote it. Impactful design is to collect all that and turn it into a picture, an illustration, a logo, a cover. Every design is a journey through creativity and imagination something that’s it’s never boring. But on this journey, we are not alone. Being able to cultivate personal relationships with my clients is one of my key goals because I want to listen to their stories and ideas and turn them into beautiful designs. As a professional, I want to be part of the journey and to give a bit of my perspective into any project that I work on with inventiveness, versatility, and inclusion.

The goal of my portfolio is to show all of the designs I created thus far and continue to make.

I created my first website in 2009 with WIX.com. It was my photography portfolio. It wasn’t good. But I was very proud. What I understood back then, was the power of digital representation and the endless exposure possibilities that it brought to any person or business. Since then, I learned many tools and techniques related to web design and development. Development tools, graphic design programs, animation and video editing techniques, web design platforms, digital marketing and SEO tools. I even wanted to make this knowledge official and went to Humber college . I want to create beautiful and practical sites for my clients. To create your site, I will: conceptualize creative ideas, design visual imagery for website and sample pages, prepare design plan and website structure, create wireframe and finally …. I will create your website.

Jerry Jacob

Over the past 5 years I have had a fantastic opportunity to venture into all forms of visual communication like Television commercials, Corporate Brand Films, 2D and 3D animation, Photography and Graphic Design for Print and web for many international clients. Having worked in all these fields, I have developed a sharp eye for detail and framing and can catch a bad pixel from afar which a regular person may miss out. Having varied experience in these different fields helps me think about a campaign cross – platform wise. How would a piece of content look on TV, social media or Print? This ability to think in all forms together is important to maintain cohesiveness in all media content published by a brand.

Karen Bulhosen

Hi! My name is Karen Bulhosen Duenas, and you might be wondering why I have two last names and that is because I’m from Mexico and we Hispanics have two last names, but here I just go with the “Bulhosen” last name. I’ve been living in Canada for seven years and since coming to this country I had previously wanted to become a graphic designer, but as I was younger, I wasn’t really sure of what was my true calling and didn’t consider the opportunity to fulfill my dreams until recently. I’ve been always passionate about design and becoming a graphic designer has been the best way to achieve the professional path I always envisioned myself. I also have a background in Architectural Technology and have completed that same three year diploma program at Humber, so you could say Humber College is my alma-mater. I also consider myself a really creative person, so graphic design could not have been a better option for me since I used to design fanarts and book covers for my fictional works on my free time when I was a teenager. So as you can see, design has always been present in my life.
