About Me

A little something about me…

Hi, I’m Itzel Mateo. I was born in the Dominican Republic and was raised there until the age of 14, I came to the United States when I was 15. I speak English and Spanish fluently. I am currently a student at Buffalo State College and will be graduating in the Spring of 2019 with a BFA in Communication (Graphic) Design. As a graphic designer it is my goal to create compelling artistic designs to compete with the continuously changing world that we live in today. My objective is to obtain a career in graphic design and use all the skills that I have obtained through the years to inspire people. It does not only take talent to be a good graphic designer, it takes passion and I have it.

“Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.”
