About Rafael Contreras

Hello, my name is Rafael Contreras, I’ve been involved in the Graphic Design and Marketing field for over 13 years. I’ve working with individuals, small businesses and corporations. Design is my chosen profession and I really enjoy it. I remember my first computer illustrations on my Apple IIGS way back in 1988 when I was just a kid. I would stay up all night digitally drawing my favorite comic book heroes. I’ve been working with design in one form or another since then.

I graduated from New Mexico State University in 2000 with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts and an emphasis in Graphic Design. After college my joy for comics prompted me to open a successful comic book store for 5 years where I created all the Marketing Materials. In 2005 I dived into the world of Advertising as a Graphic Designer. I found myself working for several fast paced newspapers in both small towns and large cities. For the past 10 years I have been working in Real Estate Marketing specializing in Print, Web and Email Campaigns. I look forward to working with you on your Design and Marketing Project.
