Why I love what I do

There’s nothing more beautiful than starting off with a brand new clean slate. I love bringing client’s visions to life creatively and artistically. It is most rewarding when our client’s are thrilled with the final result and are head over heels when their project is completed.

I also love teaching others design basics. You can find me teaching at This Design Girl. I also offer Flat Lay Photography and stock images at Flat Lay Studio. My main hub is at Marina Duque.

A little about Marina

If there is anything that describes her, it’s her love for design, art and photography. She believes that creative passion comes in many forms, and that we were not brought into this world to merely do just ON

She started drawing and painting at the age of 7, and was known as an “artist” by my peers. When she was 18, she decided to choose a more technical aspect to design. She was placed in a co-op work environment in the graphics department of a large leading bank where Corel 3.0 was the leading design program fueled by the 486 computer. Stock photos were ordered via a mail in order system and artwork was rendered through mechanical paste-up, ruby film and an Xacto knife, and camera ready art.

In 1994, “Desktop Publishing” and the “Information Superhighway” came to be, she became infatuated with design and typography and received her Honours Degree in Fine Arts in 1999.

Over the next decade, she worked with a variety of companies ranging from Photo/Video studios, Children’s Publishing, IT, Print Houses and Multimedia + Interactive Design Studios, where she started building websites with Microsoft FrontPage, Macromedia DreamWeaver and animated GIFS.
