About Maria Angelica

How can I even begin to tell you about this amazing journey I’m on? Ever since I chose to take the road less travelled- to pursue my dream and become a Graphics Design Phenomena, my life has been emotionally thrilling, mentally challenging, physically demanding and socially enriching.

I can honestly say that I’ve loved the last four years of studying a Design and Visual Communication course at University of Western Sydney. All the fun experimental and skillful design projects inspired me to invent my own unique creative and stylistic approach to design. My heart sings when working on publications, editorial designs and illustrations, but I am flexible and enjoy the freedom to work on any print or digital project.

The impossible became possible when I began studying and interning at several businesses. It was a long balancing act- I learned to be well organized, efficient, communicative, professional and overall developed a strong work ethic. Each successful and failed project- those blessings in disguise! was a celebration as alas my opportunity was here, my foot was in the door of the design industry.

Design is my passion! I believe this is my time to show the world what Maria Angelica Flores- that’s me, can do! I’m ready to hit the ground running! I’d love to meet you if you are interested with work and want to support my ambition. I am confident that I can make a positive contribution to your business and satisfy your design needs with my creative services.
