Tristine Marie Esquela

Artist + Graphic Designer

Based in the Pacific Northwest

I am a well-rounded freelance graphic designer and an aspiring artist. If I could describe myself in 3 words, it would be that I'm very efficient, determined, and creative. I have a very diverse professional background in social media and marketing, strengthening my education in graphic design and digital media such as video production and editing. I am very passionate about using design to create, communicate, and connect with other small businesses, entrepreneurs, and content creators. 

I graduated from the Art Insitute of Pittsburgh - Online Division in June 2017 with my Associates of Science in Graphic Design, along with my previous education from Skagit Valley College for my Certificate of Graphic Arts in Multimedia Interactive Technology (MIT) in June 2013. Following graduation, I completed my internship at Northwest Educational Service District (NWESD) as the Communications Intern, promoted to Communication Specialist in the summer of 2018, and a temporary Communications Assistant in the summer of 2019. During my time with NWESD, I've learned the ins and outs of in-house printing products as well as website development, print publications, reports, video editing, and production and social media graphics. 

 

My digital portfolio showcases my multimedia and design skills, and as you browse through it, you will see examples of slideshows, videos, social media graphics, flyers, banners, drawings, and painting that highlight my abilities and techniques. I have also included some personal art in my portfolio to showcase my inner creative style. 

"Find yourself. Be yourself. Live yourself." is a lifelong motto I live by since the start of my professional career. I apply that philosophy to my business practices, as well as my personal artwork. 

Besides my professional career, during my free time, I enjoy the outdoors such as hiking and paddleboarding in the beautiful state of Washington, here in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) as well as exercising such as pilates and running to stay healthy, take care of my body and mind. I will always be a lifelong learner, willing to educate myself on different creative topics, and become a better version of myself! 

I look forward to working with you to further discuss my qualifications and goals!
