“Digital design is like painting, except the paint never dries.” - Neville Brody
Maria Cumiskey has been working with Opus Web Design as a Digital Designer since January 2020. Her main responsibilities involve managing social media accounts and creating content for clients. Maria works predominantly with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro and Canva to create image and video content for social media accounts. The software she uses to schedule content for clients is Buffer.
Maria creates and runs successful Mailchimp email marketing campaigns for clients. Email marketing is a powerful way of connecting with and reaching your target customers. Professionally designed email campaigns will help you promote your brand. The frequency of email campaigns can vary depending on what each client requires. For some of her clients, they require weekly emails and for others, they can be monthly e-newsletters.
As well as social media marketing, Maria is experienced in graphic design and video editing. She is proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite including Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Maria started learning about Digital Design while studying Multimedia and Web Development at QQI Level 5 and 6 in Cavan Institute. From there she went on to attain a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Multimedia from Dublin City University.
During her time at Opus, she is keen to continue to upskill and keep up to date with the latest digital trends. She is currently doing a course on The Fundamentals of Digital Marketing with Google Digital Garage as well as working towards completing her Adobe Certificate in Illustrator.
