A Little About Me...
Hello there! My name is Marian Brondial, a freelance visual designer from a land called Hella B Design.
Ever since I was in gradeschool, I've always had an interest in art. I loved to draw, paint, and do craft projects. College is where I got my first taste of design. With my aspirations of becoming a graphic designer, I took up a Bachelor of Arts in General Design at San Jose State University. But soon after earning my degree, like most college graduates, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do first. Over time, I dabbled in other opportunities and my goals were put on hold. It wasn't until I got married and started my own family, I was re-inspired. Long story short, I am back in the game pursuing my dream!
Currently, the tools I use are Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign & Dreamweaver and I am proficient in HTML, CSS, JS, and JQuery. I am also experienced in using both platforms, Mac OS X and PC. Although I've graduated with a background in Design, I'm still determined to learn more as technology keeps moving fast. Most recent things I have learned are self-taught through online tutorials and constant self-study. I specialize in graphic work but I am continually expanding my knowledge of the latest trends in web design.
Many thanks to my family, friends, colleagues, previous employers, and the world of the internet & social media for getting me to where I am today.
Origin of Hella B Design
You can probably guess from the theme of this site that I'm a northern California girl. The word hella of the name Hella B Design was inspired from my love of the Bay Area culture,where I was born and raised.
HELLA - is a multi-purpose word that is mainly used in casual conversation invented by people in North California, indiginous to the Bay Area.
