Hi! I'm Maria, and I'm an experienced graphic designer and marketing professional.
My career began in marketing in the education industry, but in recent years I have been fortunate enough to work in marketing for clients in all kinds of sectors. Employers, colleagues, and clients appreciate my creativity, passion, hard-working ethos, and proactive approach to new challenges. Personal interests include art, travel and culture, psychology.
When I'm not at work, I also fancy myself a bit of an 👩‍🎨 Artist (if interested, check out my Instagram @ninamaria_art), 🌍 World Adventurer ( is a regular in my search history) and 🍷 Wine Enthusiast (I’m planning to undertake the WSET Awards, wish me luck!)
I'm now looking for my next exciting challenge within the world of design, brand and marketing.
