My name is Maureen Perez and I’m a graphic artist in the Tampa, Florida area. I’ve been in the graphics field since the Macintosh was first introduced back in 1985. Ok, so now you should know how old I am, too! Some of my clients have been Nokia of Latin America, Casio, Brighthouse Networks, Walmart, and Kmart.
My slogan “Designing your Everyday” came about because I do the little things that most freelance artists don’t have time to because they’ve moved onto website design. If you need a quick logo for your after school pet sitting business, letterhead, brochure, poster for your church picnic, menu for your new deli that you opened after retiring, etc, that’s where I come in! I believe everyone should be able to afford a nice graphic design.
Please check out some of my design work by clicking under the Design menu above. Below is my resume or if you’d like to print one, click here. If you need anything in the way of graphics, just drop me an email.
