Graphic Designer & Illustrator

Nashville, TN


 I'm Manuel Martinez but my nickname is Manny. I'm a grad student from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Graphic Design. I want to use my skills to be creative but also be experimental in my process to communicate a company or message. I enjoy working with different media wether its pencil to paper, to painting, or a computer to get my ideas across. Very organized and willing to collaborate with clients or a creative team to complete a successful project!


In my free time, I enjoy watching videos that teach you something. I continue to improve on the guitar and stock trading. I have a passion for sports, fitness, and psychology as well.
