I AM a creative
Mari de Baudus
"The life of a designer is a life of fight. Fight against the ugliness. Just like a doctor fights against disease. For us, the visual disease is what we have around, and what we try to do is cure it somehow with design.”
Why hire me?
I have been working for about ten years in events area creating and executing B2B andB2C projects always striving for high customer satisfaction. Year after year, my former company reduced my creativity area. My work was so limited that it can't fulfill me anymore. I felt frustrated. I tried to clear up the situation with no results. Overall, I noticed a deep lack of transparency. My values didn't align with my organization. I have a high work ethic and expect transparency from my teammates and employers. Transparency is much more than security mechanisms; it embodies human skills such as sincerity and open communication.
At one point, I decided to re-route my career on creativity searching for a job placement corresponding to my criteria. Curiosity, challenges and self-learning were the keys. I applied to Mastered for an online Fashion Art Director training. In 10 months, I have learned a new job and activated relevant skills (coding, video-editing, organization and management skills, leadership, problem-solving).
The decision paid off! In 2019, I started working for Arkki, a Finnish leading institution on creative education. I found out how my work production benefits from a meaningful, empathic and flat organization focused on children's future. It was a pleasure to put into practice what I have learned.
A recap of my story: I'm intuitive when I create, efficient and goal-oriented when I execute tasks. I am a problem solver in my field. If you wish a hard worker in your team, recruit me: with me, you will get an inspiring and bright working flow at the office!
I'm a creative Graphic Designer. I translate a concept or an emotion into all possible visual languages. I create dynamic visuals that refresh your imago and boost your sales. I know how to implement your guidelines replenishing the personality of your brand. When I'm working I constantly evaluate creative solutions in terms of suitability to the original brief.
Have a look!
Coming soon (Dec 2020)
I highly recommend Mari for AD and graphic designer positions. In her time at Arkki, she has shown the technical and interpersonal skills that make for a truly exceptional AD and team member. In particular, she is not afraid to overtake any challenge, and learn new technologies or skills if needed. Mari offers professional vision, a multitude of technical skills, plus adaptability and grace under pressure. We will miss having Mari on our team, but our loss can be your gain.
