Raquel Maihofer Long Beach, CA 90815 Email: Rmaihofe@csulb.edu I'm Raquel and my passion is design. I spend my day thinking of new creative ways to express ideas. I am a dedicated artist looking to specialize in graphic design. I use Photoshop primarily but I know Illustrator, InDesign, Image Ready, Quark, Dreamweaver, and Flash. I adapt well to other graphics programs quickly. I am motivated, reliable and often finish tasks extremely fast without losing quality. I work well in groups and alone. I am friendly and but I can also take charge as a leader. I have received several awards for my work: from the Chula Vista Art Guild, The Imation Computer Arts Scholarship, the Mary Edna Rose Scholarship, and Islander Achievement Award for Visual Arts.
