Gina Cusano

Hello! I’m a freelance Senior Graphic Designer who has worked with multiple clients in varying industries for over 10+ years. Being self-employed develops valuable skills on a business and project management side. It also expands my creativity and provides a range of work in my portfolio. With these combo of strengths, I strive to be a top candidate for clients in need.

I am open for new opportunities. I want to apply my professional experience and showcase my expertise to support companies and creative teams. I hope to enrich any workplace with energy and enthusiasm!

When not working, I enjoy staying active, outdoor adventures, planning my next social outing and rooting for professional LA sports teams.

If you’re interested in learning more or want to discuss working together, let’s connect!

What I Do

Graphic Design

I am passionate about graphic design and visually communicating concepts and ideas for a specific purpose. For me, this started as a kid. There were instances of sketching logos for fictitious sports teams and made-up soda brands in my idea book. Now in my career, I take pride in this craft by respecting “form follows function” through typography, color, tone, imagery, visual balance and organization. Applying these principals has fostered outstanding results for many of my projects.

Print Design

Even though most design needs have shifted to digital, I still cherish the traditional print medium! Is it old school to get excited over paper samples, spot varnishes, die-cuts, and saddle stitching? My dream projects are ones where I get to design a new brand. I love developing something from scratch and carrying it across all types of materials.

Project Management

By owning a small business, I have developed a variety of different skills. I adapt well in different work environments and can confidently take a project from start to completion either independently or collaboratively. I can juggle multiple tasks while remaining time efficient, organized, detail oriented, budget minded and on schedule. In the midst of a busy work day, I can prioritize tasks, respond to clients/vendors in a timely matter and keep open communication with the team.

Digital Design

I have ample experience producing digital content. I welcome the break of switching from print to digital mediums. Whether it be web page layouts, infographic designs, social media graphics and interactive PDFs, these projects can sometimes require a learning curve. I am eager for these moments because they broaden my expertise.
