Greetings, I am Mary Austin, a native of Tbilisi, Georgia, and a perpetual globe-trotter for the last decade. Living the quintessential life of a digital nomad, I routinely traverse new countries and cities every half-year in an incessant quest for adventure and cultural enlightenment.
Graphic Design Skills:
I'm a digital designer specializing in Visual Identity and User Experience Design. I embarked on my design journey 5 years ago and have since worked with international companies on Desktop Apps, Web Designs, Packaging, Logo Design, Visual Identity Systems, and Illustration Systems. My experience spans in-house roles, agency work and freelancing.
I am proud to hold a Master's degree from the prestigious Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, an institution renowned for over a century of significant contributions to the arts and design. During my time there, I excelled academically, achieving a GPA of 3.9 out of 4.0. This academic success earned me a government-sponsored stipend and an Erasmus Mundus work and study Scholarship in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
In terms of personality, I am constantly eager to learn and grow, dedicating myself daily to absorbing new knowledge. For over five years, I have been deeply immersed in studying various design disciplines, including Visual Design, UI Design, User Experience Design, and Brand Identity. My dedication led to the completion of top-tier courses and programs. I continue to develop professionally, guided by mentorships with industry leaders from companies like Apple, Google, Nike, Amazon, and others.
My passion for exploration and travel fuels my curiosity about different cultures and people. This curiosity significantly influences my design approach. Before starting a project, I conduct thorough research on the subject matter, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources. It’s all about connecting the dots and infusing meaning into my designs.
