About Marybelle

Hi there,

I am a design professional with over 8+ years of experience in my field.

I have experience training team members, working remotely with team members and teaching art/language to many ages: from 6 years of age to mature adults! The best teaching method I have found is to incorporate and customize the activities you enjoy and then combine them to the subject you want to learn. It makes the experience of learning smoother, engaging, and it increases the willingness to continue learning. Approaching the subject that way simply produces a result both parties enjoy!

My degree is in design, my cultural experience is diverse: French is my primary language, English is my secondary language. However, living in America for over 12 years, I am now perfectly fluent in both!

Let me know of further details you would like to know, and I will be glad to provide them to you.
Thank you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I have practiced design since 2003, studying Fine Arts and Visual Communication in Paris at Les Ecoles de Condé for 2 years. First learning to sketch and layout concepts for digital design, in this case Quarkxpress. Then I transitioned to InDesign in the U.S, getting a degree in Graphic Design and using pre-press in-depth techniques, additional printing software (ColorBurst RIP for example) and compatible printing specs with the other Adobe Suite programs to optimize outputs (PMS, Print & Paper finishes). My understanding and knowledge of the software is technical and also creative. I am used to designing from small scale to large scale and web, incorporating images, fonts and effects to arrive to the best end. Samples of my work are available upon request.

Drawing

I have studied Fine Arts and Visual Communication in Paris at Les Ecoles de Condé for 2 years and have drawn since childhood. I have learned various techniques and styles throughout those years. Then, I continued my studies in the U.S with a more digital approach, combining drawing fundamentals to digital illustrations. Samples of my work are available upon request.

French

I am French. French is my primary language. I was born, lived, studied and worked in France, both in the South of France and in Paris. I moved to America 10 years ago at the age of 23. I have taught French to children from the age of 8 to adults by creating fun interactive conversational and consistent learning environments.

Graphic Design

I have studied Fine Arts & Visual Communications in Paris at Les Ecoles de Condé for 2 years. Then studied Graphic Design at the Art Institute of California - Los Angeles and graduated with a BA. While studying, I freelanced and gained business practice as well as communication skills. I have been in Senior Designer and an Art Director for 3 years now, and in this capacity I have trained, taught and developed in-house departments to function as a team and produce creative results above the clients expectations. Samples of my work are available upon request. Relevant samples fall under Oasis, Dockers, The A21 Campaign and Smile Brands Inc specifically for team leading and team building. I graduated Valedictorian and lead as President of the AIGA student group for over 5 quarters.

Macintosh

I grew up using a Mac from my teenage years and then studied design and visual communication with Apple. I have used it for business, communication and for leisure/fun as well. I am well-versed with the various shortcuts and specific based programs it contains. I have around 16 years of practice of this platform. Thank you!

Microsoft Windows

I am well-versed with Windows. I have used this platform in conjunction with Mac during my design studies (since 2004) but also in design agency departments that use both. Some specific design programs used to be only available on Windows like Macromedia Flash and Maya. It was a graduating requirement to be at ease on both platforms and I have kept my skills up to date for easier business practices and to remain competitive on the job market. I own a Windows computer and a Mac in my home.
Thank you!

Photography

While studying, in Paris I shot with film. Then in the U.S I studied using digital cameras. I've learned and practiced composition, lighting and post. I have shot for live events and in-house photoshoots. I understand how to tell a story with an image and capturing a moment/an emotion; playing with shadows and creating a mood; making a brand statement and shooting spaces for a presentation layout. Samples of my work are available upon request. I have studied Fine Arts & Visual Communications in Paris at Les Ecoles de Condé for 2 years. Then, I studied Graphic Design at the Art Institute of California - Los Angeles and graduated with a BA.
