I’m creative, confident, determined and dynamic. Visual Art is my passion.
Hi, my name is Renata Fortes. I have been working in the Internet industry since 1998 and have accumulated extensive marketing and design experience during this time.
Through my constant interest and passion for this field, I was self-taught to use HTML. After successfully completing my final high school year I developed my first, own website. It was through this website that I was offered a job as a Web Designer. After only a year in the industry and while I was studying for a Graphic Design degree at University, I joined a Cannes Lion Awarded Team at Thunder House McCann Erickson in Brazil to work as a Web Designer. In Brazil I worked for companies such as Grey Interactive, George Patterson Y&R 2.1 and Wunderman.
I came to Australia in 2004 to study English. Soon after, I married an Australian man and now live in Melbourne. With my extensive experience gained in online media in Brazil, I was able to work in Australia for the same companies I worked for in Brazil. I have been working as a freelancer in Melbourne since 2008 and now I work for various companies. I’m specialised in online communication and I’m always searching for innovative interactive solutions.
I have always had a passion for photography, so after having kids I went back to school and achieved a diploma in Photo Imaging. I have concluded this course in early 2014. So, I’m now also a freelancer photographer.
I work mostly from my home based office or do emergency work for advertising agencies for one or two days a week. I have my own photographic studio and I also take a lot of photos outdoor at nearby parks and other picturesque locations.
Please contact me if you need any professional design or photography work done, I’ll be very happy to answer any questions you may have and supply you with a detailed quotation! Web Design and Photography are my passions.
