Hi, Welcome to my website. My name is Solomon Obadia. I’m a bilingual graphic/web designer with over 10 years of diverse hands-on design experience. I have proven effectiveness in creating eye catching visuals that promote the organization. I’ve designed P.O.P’s, package design, logos, business cards, letterheads, posters, brochures, websites and print directory ads. I’m committed to producing high quality designs while being sensitive to clients needs. I’m creative with an innate sense of colour, composition, typography. I have expert knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, QuarkXPress, MS Office, Dreamweaver and Flash. Solid foundation of XTHML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, C#, ASP.net, SQL, SQL Server Mangaement Studio, Python, DJango , VisualStudio 2013, C++, Android Studio,Java, NetBeans,

I went to school to study graphic design at George Brown College. I then worked at SD Graphics doing primarily pre-press work, which involved trapping, typesetting and film output. Next I worked at Rockprint Inc. for three years as graphic designer. We were the in-house graphics to Johnvince Foods. I feel here is where I really grew as a graphic artist. I did everything from corporate design, package design, pre-press (trapping and film output) to digital photography.

From there I continued to take on casual jobs from Aquent partners and my own free-lance work. I then got a position as a layout artist at Yellow Pages Group (formally Bell Actimedia) for a period of ten years. I created black/white and full colour process ads from quarter to full-page for various clients in a range of professions in this popular print directory.

And most recently I’ve worked as a bilingual layout artist at Wall2Wall Media (a division of the Yellow Pages Group) for a period of one and half years. I designed layout ads in monthly real estate publications in the Québec region such as Maisons À Vendre Montréal, Maisons À Vendre Outaouais and ReMax Montréal. I also assisted with various english publications such as Home Décor and Renovations and Commercial Investor. And furthermore I assisted in updating client websites in our inhouse web department using their wall2wall.blueroof360.com template system.
