Soma Helen Escobedo

I'm a Denver based graphic designer and fine artist who got into graphic design by way of zines, and am drawn to design that employs hand made elements. I love books and graphic novels, and spend Saturday mornings reading and drinking coffee with Reuben, the dog.

My skills encompass Sqaurespace websites, branding campaigns, art directing publications and silkscreening posters. I also specialize in Social Media marketing and training.

I can juggle many projects at once, pay attention to detail, yet see the big picture and how it all fits together at the same time. An example of this is a project I worked on in 2011: Art Directing Give!Guide, a yearly program to help local nonprofits raise money. This project required me to put together a brand that spanned a 48 page publication, a website, twitter account and facebook page. The result was raising over 1.5 million dollars for 100 local nonprofits, which was over half a million improvement from the previous year.

I am a fast learner, love all aspects of design with a nearly religious fervor, and have a great balance between perfection and speed. My passions range from kerning type to art directing photo shoots. I'm always excited to learn new things, but find a comfort in repetition and perfection.
