My name is Summer Pankopf. I am a freelance graphic artist and illustrator available for hire. I was born in La Jolla, California and grew up by the beach, developing a love for surfing and art. I continue to develop and push my creativity with every design. I enjoy working in the design field, where I can connect both of my passions, doing what I love & loving what I do.
I have a strong knowledge of the Mac OSX and the Adobe Creative Suite CC & CS6 including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc. I create original art and have a very strong sense of current art trends and technical design. My design specialties include creative direction, textile & product development, advertising campaigns, look book design, photography and hand drawn illustrations.
My goal is to focus on the individual client and design creative concepts that communicate their specific vision. I keep an open stream of communication during the design process to ensure project completion and to ultimately give you solutions you can trust and count on.
I am currently available for collaborations & freelance projects.
