Hi! Welcome to my online board.  I am Deson and I do most of the creative types from graphic designs to web and video editing.  I don't have any educational background in creative arts but I am a degree holder in Accounting. 

 

How was that? Well, during my college years, I needed to have a part-time job because my parents can't afford to send us, three of us, to college at the same time so I decided to make a move for myself.  Luckily, I was accepted in the program of our university called Student Trainee Assistance Program where I needed to render 8-hour work for the university in compensation for the free tuition fees.  It was a big help for me, however, I can't study the course I love which is Architecture because of the time limitations I have.  And for some reason, Accounting is the only course I have in mind which offers evening subjects that are in the curriculum.

To make my story short, the University found potential in me in regards to my talent and passion with arts so they decided to make me do streamer layouts, brochures, and any marketing materials.  Furthermore, they listed me as a staff for the University's yearbook and from there, my skills in graphic design vastly developed.

I successfully finished my Accounting degree and I was also very active with our college as I was the President of the Accounting Technology club. But after graduation, I told myself that accounting is good but being an artist makes me feel more valuable.  So I decided to use my portfolio to win a graphic design position but later on, I found new waves of a challenge in the online world so I took it and left my corporate job.  Now I work as a full-time freelance designer and help various clients across the globe for their personal or corporate creative needs.
