PIA MANZUR

Graphic Designer/Animator

Hi, I’m Pia.

I’m a detail-focused, results-driven design professional with years of experience achieving organizational goals while maintaining high aesthetic standards. I’m highly-skilled with visual design, animation and photography. Expert in color theory, with a keen eye for style and visual composition. 3D Character/Flash animator with an excellent understanding of movement, timing, rhythm, weight, and great physical and acting skills. I’m a motivational team worker with a high sense of responsibility and commitment. I’m technically skilled, quick learning and understanding of new softwares.

Photography is one of my main tools. As a graphic designer my greatest passion is to create solid worlds with an innovative consistent visual language, that can clearly speak for a product, brand or story, and photography is certainly one of the most powerful languages for me to express those stories and messages. (To check in detail my work as a photographer , go to www.piamanzurphotography.com)

I am constantly looking for meaningful projects or activities in any of the professional fields I get involved. That is my greatest motivation and my engine in order to deliver high quality. My working methodology follows a design process that I thoroughly follow and my aims are delivering visual consistency, entertainment and clearness in the message to be delivered.
