My name is Daniel Fernandez. I’m a creative leader living in Florida. For almost 20 years I have provided Graphic Design services to a variety of companies from small businesses to big corporations.
For the past 14 years I have been working for Marriott Vacations Worldwide as a Senior Art Director overseeing an amazing team of designers, as well as working hands on. My strengths include creative thinking and storytelling, adaptability and versatility. I truly believe in team collaboration and I’m always eager to push the envelope, whether it’s while working by myself or when selling an idea, directing and/or mentoring a team. My main passion is branding, but I can do anything design related as well as web development.
I like to spend most of my personal time with my family and working on my personal brand Goods of Horror. I also enjoy spending my time wakeboarding, playing music and riding motorcycles.
Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions feel free to contact me and let me know how I can help.
