Ahmed Avendano

Chicago, Illinois, United States

My name is Ahmed Avendano and I recently moved from Mexico City to Chicago with my husband and our cat, after traveling around the world for a few months.

I do communications and marketing for social, community and nonprofit organizations and I’m currently looking for opportunities to use my professional skills and inspiration to mobilize social capital and help to make this world a better place, one project at a time.

I worked in communications for United Way of Mexico and right now I am working part-time online as an Ads Rater. My most recent freelance projects include web editorial design for First Generation Farmers' Web Page, a non-profit community farm in the East Bay Area, and print designs for a school district in California.

I am passionate about brand management, social mobilization and fundraising, activist movements, and above all communication campaigns that attempt to change the world. I am interested in the future of humanity and I'm always thinking about and looking for clues on how civilization will evolve and adapt to challenging living conditions.

Big fan of information design, data visualization, coffee, sustainable architecture and Bikram Yoga.
