Creatively Crafted

Hi, I’m Takira Yager

An award winning Art Director with 10 years of experience in Graphic Design, UX/UI Web Design and managerial creative positions. Vast knowledge in web development, SEO, multi-media, marketing, and social media. Working remote for vast majority of my career I have exceptional collaborative and interpersonal skills; communicate and lead creatives from a distance while being a dynamic team player with well-developed written and verbal communication abilities.

Extensive track record with assessing needs, recommending products and services. I’ve even had the fun experience directing and being in videos and photography productions.

It’s beyond important you are proud of the work I create for you, and I am more than confident I can accomplish just that. Let’s talk and get started on your next project.


SKILLS


I joke about being a Swiss Army Knife. I have a wide range of skills that make what I do for a living a lot more fun + exciting and they give me the drive to keep moving forward. I am by no means an expert and that’s where the hunger to continue to grow kicks in.
