Leo Martinez
& The Power of Three

VISUAL COMM. DESIGN

As a visual communication designer, I get to use graphic design and illustrations to support specific marketing and brand strategies and to achieve specific goals and KPIs. Since the day I taught myself how to use Photoshop, I have designed infographics, social media imagery, and presentation decks, and I have participated in UX, UI projects.  I am currently getting to know Affinity Designer and also work with front and back-end developers to build websites.

DIGITAL MARKETING

What sets me apart from other visual communications designer is my experience in digital marketing and SEO. Nowadays, websites not only have to be beautiful, but they also have to be functional and have content that is both helpful to visitors and easy for search engines to interpret. My goal is to make sure that there is the right balance between visuals and written content. I create things like infographics and creative imagery that makes a piece of written content much more dynamic and skimmable.

SOCIAL MEDIA

The work doesn’t stop in the creation of engaging and useful content. I love finding creative ways of using social media to tell a story and to promote the pieces, that’s why I am always on the look out for storytelling social media toolsDuring my career, I have been part of the creation of social media strategies, editorial calendar, and management for different companies and enterprises.

& The Tale of Time

2007

Around this time I was going to college for Advertising and working at my first official job at Atento. By being part of the first team to work at the Outgoing Call Center for the Electric Company, I learned about phone etiquette and work-ethic.

2009

By this year my life had changed completely. I had done my Up With People semester and also had a job as an English and Spanish Teacher.  I learned about leadership, teaching and community impact.

2011

Hello, London! At this point in time, I was going to Hult Business School in London, working a part-time job, and also started my first internship in the fashion industry… all at once. I learned about time management, hard work, and attention to detail during this period.

2013

No llores por mi, Argentina! Around this time I had to say goodbye to Argentina where I had my start-up experience and say hello to the USA. During this period of my life, I was learning about adaptability and patience.

2015

My adventures in upstate New York start. Around this time I already had a few years working with graphic design, branding, and social media marketing. This is the moment I start getting into SEO, strategy, digital marketing, and agency life.

Now

Currently, I spend my time designing and overseen creative content as Outspoken Media‘s Visual Communications Manager. I also offer support on strategies, conceptualization, SEO/Reputation Marketing Audits and other digital marketing related adventures.

Helping the Community

I care about the community and help out where I can. From collecting donations for the LGBTQ+ Community, to or helping out a local family, I like giving back and supporting those who need it the most.

Traveling

I value traveling and exposure to multiculturalism. Living in many different countries, and working with people from different cultures have shaped the professional I am today.

CREATIVE INDUSTRIES

One of the reasons that my concentration during my studies was about the Creative Industries is because I like being involved in different creative projects. I enjoy taking photos, making videos and making art. Here you can see some of my work:

UNTYPICALMAN

I have come to believe that masculinity is a complex concept, that travel plays a big part in the evolution of our identity, that fashion is a great tool for self-expression and that we take way to many photos that we don’t do anything with. On this lifestyle and travel blog I share, photos, thoughts and more:
