My name is Diamar Payano. I am a professional Graphic & Digital Designer & Illustrator with excellent work ethic, drive, and dedication. I have a take charge, positive attitude and confront challenges fearlessly. Well seasoned in design, marketing and merchandising.

I am extremely self driven and passionate about my design and have excellent organizational skills. My goal is to continuously seek & welcome new challenges while evolving and growing both creatively and professionally.
My ambition, hard work, dedication and consistency lead me to the opportunity to work with some of the most innovative and well known brands, such as Sak’s Fifth Avenue, LVMH, Estée Lauder and L'Oréal; where I created both digital and print media for corporate and retail live events as well as freelance projects.
During my time at L’Oréal - SkinCeuticals, I was revered for being an asset to the team and acknowledged for my design skills, my proactive mind set and my excellent work ethic.
Prior to my time at L’Oréal, I was an Art Director for a variety of startup companies, including, Lags Glass, where I solely managed all creative and marketing projects, created every design, from concept to sampling, to mass production, as well as manage and create all print and digital media.
