Moe Abugan: Reverse Job Posting

I'm a professional creative: a collateral designer & program builder with a thoughtful, people-based approach.

I am looking to settle into a full-time creative and project management role with a mission-driven organization, and to grow my strengths as a strategist, arranger, and relator.

I spent the last few years earning my Master's in Leadership Studies and co-developing and integrating a campus-wide suicide prevention program (funded by a two-year SAMHSA grant) at the University of San Diego. Hire me!


About Moe

I love transforming good ideas into great work.

I'm quick to prototype and make revisions. I'm always strategizing, sorting through clutter, and thinking up alternatives and leads to fulfill my work - whether I am designing an executive report to advocate for a nonprofit's work or leading a systems change within my team.

I flourish in leadership teams.

I work hard, and I love working with other hard workers. I have a knack for recognizing people's talents, skills, and knowledge and can often tell how very different people will be able to work together.

I'm a quick learner, and I enjoy sharing knowledge with others.

I spend a lot of my free time piloting new applications/integrations/software that may help my team and me do our work more efficiently and effectively. I'm also quite careful to see that my work is legible for those who may/will come after me.

I strive for my work to be as easy-to-receive as possible.

My design style aims to be clean, simple, and user-friendly. I value and welcome constructive, specific feedback about my work.
