dan rodrigues - graphic designer


job description

It's my job to develop all creative briefs from conception through to completion and I work in close liaison with our clients at every stage of a project to ensure that they are receiving the results that they require and are happy with the design process as it evolves.

I enjoy working across a wide range of disciplines and media including print, web and 3D and never tire of learning new methods and techniques. I also enjoy working closely with Gallant's preferred creative service providers such as IT specialists, printers and suppliers who all help us to achieve great work.
