Hello! I'm Jillian Villareal, a graphic designer based in sunny Los Angeles, California. In 2018, I graduated with a Graphic Design certificate from Otis College of Art & Design. I previously attained a Bachelor's degree in Communications in 2013 from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and worked in marketing and social media for a couple years after that. It was during my time as a marketing assistant that sparked my interest in graphic design. I used to spend my younger days experimenting with different forms of art: drawing, paint, oil pastels, origami, and ceramics and absolutely loved it. It wasn't until my marketing job, where I worked closely with the marketing designer, when it reignited my childhood passions—it's crazy how those things never really leave you! After that I made a conscious decision to go back to school and haven't looked back since. I currently work full-time as an in-house graphic designer for AQ Skin Solutions but am also available for freelance projects.
