Hi I am Coll Gomes
I am an independent Graphic Designer based in Cape Town. I have 23 years experience specialising in AppleMac/PC, Adobe Creative Suite (CS5) with an ability to understand the strengths of a Brand/ Product/ Service. I offer reliability, good organisation and time management skills, a creative imagination, excellent interpersonal and effective communication skills and a passion for Visual Communication deliverables that work effectively for your purpose.

The Client assigns and I Deliver Well communicated relationships lead to great results.
Customers are busy so I listen, ask good questions and then act promptly to get the creative brief process started. Building a creative vision takes teamwork as well as good time management. So when you as a client assign me to do a project - you can consider us a partnership where we get to know and rely on each other. I’ll get on with the details in order to tell your story in a stylised way while adhering to your Brand standards, with a consistency across all your communication materials. I will work until I deliver the vision into a high quality designed product, delivered on time.
