Luis Martinez worked as a Graphic Designer for MOC Products Company, Inc. Over the course of his employment at MOC, Luis showed continued growth and knowledge in his field of expertise. Luis actively demonstrated time and again a willingness to take on larger projects and more responsibility in the Graphics Department.

Luis is a strong team player with good interpersonal skills. He has a calm nature and works well under pressure. Luis accepts and handles constructive criticism well. In the capacity of a graphic designer at MOC, Luis continually had to interface with a wide variety of demanding personnel who expected their jobs to be completed with a very short turnaround time. Luis was able to take vague input/instruction and create the sort of results that the Marketing and Sales Departments required to boost sales and further the growth of the company. Luis showed a continued willingness to learn new skill sets, such as mastering Flash and other assorted video editing programs.

Luis is a very creative and talented graphic designer who can think and create outside of the box. I would highly recommend him for any position he desires to apply at. He would definitely be a valued asset to any department or company lucky enough to hire him.

I have worked with Luis Martinez for the past several years and have found him to be reliable,creative and an overall excellent worker. During my tenure as the Sales Support Manager Luisassisted me in the filming of several training videos and marketing projects and was instrumentalin the post production of those projects. His efforts enabled our sales staff to obtain positivefeedback from our customers, leading to increased sales.While not directly responsible for Luis’ supervision I always found him to be easy to direct andvalued his insights relating to our projects.
