About me

Hi, my name is Janet Antunano a Designer and Front-end Web Developer, I love what I do: Design.



Who I am

My Adventure as a Designer

Design has been a very important aspect of my life. Even while I was in high school in my country of origin, Perú. There I was trained as a Graphic Designer and graduated with honors, achieving a Bachelor in Science Degree. In 2002, I obtained an Associate in Science Degree from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.

Thanks to my combined knowledge and skills obtained both in Peru and in the United States, I graduated Cum-Laude and achieved the Best Portfolio Award. Now, since technology is changing very fast I decided to continue my education in Web Design and Interactive Media.

Graphic and Web are my canvases. The challenge involved in effectively communicating ideas through visual media is like working a puzzle in which all the pieces start off in the imagination and end up as an aesthetically pleasing masterpiece that empowers and liberates a message.
