About Me

Agnes Azaryan Art Director & Web Designer

I am a full service freelance graphic design artist and web designer, serving a wide range of individuals and companies throughout the greater Los Angeles area. I have a BA in Graphic Design from Valiasr Art University of Iran-Tehran, and have more than 7 years of experience in total design branding solutions for big and small clients.

I create visual concepts by hand or using computer software, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. In addition, I develop the overall layout and production design for advertisements, brochures, magazines, and corporate reports.

Further, I combine art and technology to communicate ideas through images and the layout of websites and printed pages. I use a variety of design elements to achieve artistic or decorative effects.

As a graphic designer, I work with both text and images. Typically, I select the type, font, size, color, and line length of headlines, headings, and text. Graphic designers also decide how images and text will go together on a print or webpage, including how much space each will have. When using text in layouts, graphic designers collaborate closely with writers who choose the words and decide whether the words will be put into paragraphs, lists, or tables. Through the use of images, text and color, I am able to transform statistical data into visual graphics and diagrams, which can make complex ideas more accessible.

Graphic design is important in the sales and marketing of products, and is a critical component of brochures and logos, working closely with people in advertising and promotions, public relations, and marketing, which is why it is important to keep up-to-date with the latest software and computer technologies in order to remain competitive.

Web Designer

A web designer's work could be viewed by thousands of people every day. Web designers create the pages, layout, and graphics for web pages, and play a key role in the development of a website. Web designers have the task of creating the look and feel of a website by choosing the style, and by designing attractive graphics, images, and other visual elements, and adapting them for the website’s pages. Web designers also design and develop the navigation tools of a site. Web designers may make decisions regarding what content is included on a web page, where things are placed, and how the aesthetic and continuity is maintained from one screen to the next. All of this involves skill and training in computer graphics, graphic design, and in the latest in computer and web technology.

Graphic Designer

A graphic designer is a professional within the graphic design and graphic arts industry who assembles together images, typography, or motion graphics to create a piece of design. A graphic designer creates the graphics primarily for published, printed or electronic media, such as brochures (sometimes) and advertising. They are also sometimes responsible for typesetting, illustration, user interfaces, web design, or take a teaching position. A core responsibility of the designer's job is to present information in a way that is both accessible and memorable.
