Testimonials

"The combination of Roman’s graphic design skills and understanding of its applications helped us create a recognizable brand and feel within the university. His initiative and ability to manage multiple projects independently made being his supervisor a perk and a privilege. Roman played a vital role in making the Career Center a welcoming place for USC students. His charisma is second to none and you can sense and see his energy in each and every project he played a role in."

"If you're looking for a dynamic junior graphic designer who's always up for a challenge — look no further than Roman Rodriguez! Roman is communicative, hard-working, highly imaginative, and an absolute joy to collaborate with. Beyond his technical skills, one of the best traits about Roman is his contagiously cheerful attitude. His positivity is invaluable and will make him a great asset to any creative team out there."

"With an immense, caring, and passionate attention to detail, Roman’s creative vision and leadership generate results that are intricately curated to exceed expectations. His professionalism and organization allow room to explore countless creative avenues while seeing thoughts turn to beautifully crafted work. Without Roman’s elaborate assistance and months of hard work, our restaurant would not have its unique, eye-catching image. Roman allows us to see our dreams become a reality."
