My name is Salome, but people usually call me Sal. I am a young professional with experience in digital marketing, graphic design, and customer care. Currently, I am working on a 4-year BTech degree in Communication Design to pursue my lifelong passion in the art of marketing and digital communications. As someone who is creative and detail-oriented with strong analytical skills, I have a demonstrated history of successfully working in a fast-paced, progressive work environment.
My fascination with visual communications and the digital world started at the age of 13 when I launched Adobe Photoshop for the first time. I was previously interested in digital photography and the fact that I could modify or completely change the reality of my photos with the help of the program greatly excited me. Over time as I learned more about the importance of visuals and good design, I started reading books about marketing, branding and color theory. At this point, I had already dropped out as an economics major from University in Bulgaria and was living in New York – one of the most inspiring cities in terms of many things, including great designs & history.
During my first few years in New York, while I was still trying to settle in the city, I was rigorously working in many types of jobs. At the same time, I was focusing on and planning for my goal, which was a formal education in the field of visual communications. Six years after leaving Bulgaria and five years since moving to New York, here I am, pursuing my lifelong passion!
My interest in the field has only gotten stronger with time, and now that I have made it this far, I’m ready to learn as much as possible and enjoy the process of this opportunity as well.
