Hello! My name is Kim Rescate and I am a graphic designer, photographer, social media strategist and web designer committed to progress, innovation and excellence. I strive for perfect balance of design and technology to produce powerful and effective products.


I love what I do and I care about the projects I work on. I would like the opportunity to work with an innovative organization that will profit from my fresh, intensely creative approach to marketing and design that successfully reinforces brand persona, engages current customers and captures new ones.
