About Javier Amador-Peña

graphic & web designer

My work draws on my hands-on background in developing print and online marketing and communications materials, as well as my experience collaborating with marketing and publications teams to design, implement and evaluate strategies that support marketing and communications objectives.

The work shown here is just a small sampling of projects that focus on developing and designing newsletters, magazines, direct mail products, marketing campaigns, websites, microsites, blogs, email blasts, e-newsletters, e-books and photography, among others. Many of these projects have also entailed managing brand strategy, from development to implementation.

I am a native Spanish speaker who is fluent in English; I'm very enthusiastic about projects and clients that entail the use of my bilingual skills.

Matt Cyr, Former Supervisor

“I loved working with Javier. When we approached him, we did not really know exactly what we wanted. Javier listened to us, understood right away the kind of concepts and image we wanted to convey, and gave us wonderful ideas. In the end, Javier helped us figure out exactly what we wanted for our website. It was a collaborative process from beginning to end. Javier has an abundance of patience and creativity. That was exactly what we needed.”

“Working with Javier was a wonderful experience that transformed my way of thinking about websites and social media. He is visually creative and has a real grasp of what engages consumers and can translate this into stimulating and effective marketing materials. I look forward to working with Javier in the future to further develop my marketing campaign.”

“In our work together, Javier designed a beautiful set of materials that perfectly reflected the culture and identity of The Learning Project. When Javier began his work, the organization had a strong sense of its identity, but it existed mostly as a gut feeling. Javier faced a challenge because while we were not great at clearly expressing our identity, we were extremely protective of it.

Javier adeptly guided the organization to move its sense of identity from a gut feeling to images on paper. His product was unanimously applauded by The Learning Project community. It is a pleasure to work with Javier. His photos are beautiful and capture the genuine moments at our school and his graphic design was an incredible match.”
