My name is Mike Muya, originally from South Africa and now a permanent resident of the United States.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications and over nine years of extensive professional experience
as a senior Multimedia Creative.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of working with clients from a variety of sectors, ranging from educational, medical, construction, legal, environmental and nonprofit sectors. all of which has enabled me to become a senior level Visual Designer, conceptual creator, and team leader with campaign management experience in Multimedia and Marketing.
Additionally, I have been working as a freelance designer and consultant in UI/UX, Animation and branding
efforts for the past two years. This has afforded me the opportunity to work with an extensive and diverse group
of writers, developers, creative technologists and strategists.
The following are some of my highlights and accomplishments:
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communications with nine years of professional experience as a
Graphic Designer for both print and digital channels.
I have extensive experience in Animation, Video, UI/UX Design, and familiarity with HTML5, CSS3, Responsive Design and continue to stay current with contemporary design and technology trends.
I was the Campaign Manager and Creative Director of a nine-person team for an annual initiative started by the NGO, Gift of the Givers Foundation and Assegai & Javelin Advertising called JumpStart (In South Africa). JumpStart offered disadvantaged high school entrepreneurs opportunities to start their own businesses, and provided for more than 100 students branding deliverables every year.
I know a little bit about a lot, however when I find something that I love and am good at, I spend much time investing in it. That is why my portfolio is filled with my passions: Music, UI/UX, Graphic Design, Video and Animation. All mediums have something in common: it is how I express and create. And I love every minute of it.
