CollapseDescription

Design is a Process . . . . . one that I insist you play an integral role in . . . . . after all . . . . it is my job, my desire, my passion,(you get the idea) to ensure that your message is relayed in a way that sets you apart from your competition AND that this is accomplished in a way that you are pleased with. Whether I am creating your new brand or utilizing an existing mark, I communicate with you every step of the way . . . . . from conceptualization approval final creation to production I Can Provide . . . . . quality, affordable design on print items such as business cards, letter sets, mailers, posters, outdoor advertising (signage, billboards) ~ you name it, I can create it! Your print identity can and should be utilized as a consistent look for your web presence ~ I can do that too!. . . .

CollapseAccomplishments

Highlights:

I have extensive computer skills that I have acquired not just from the formal school environment, but also in my personal quest to learn more. I have found that no matter how much we may think we know, there is always something out there that will spark a new way of looking at things, or will enlist a different approach to a familiar challenge. I am a self-starter/multi-tasker who can work alone as well as in a group environment. I thrive on the ideas that bounce from one creative to another; ideas that by myself I may have not contemplated. I am a forward thinking individual and I donít limit myself to my job description when I work for a company.

Companies I like:

Food Network, Bravo TV, Target, The Gap, Old Navy,

CollapseResponsibilities

I have had the opportunity to work as the Marketing/Media/Events Coordinator for a local non-profit which enabled me to not only work with over 100 volunteers, I was fortunate enough to work with some of the brightest minds in our community and was able to soak up their knowledge. I successfully planned and coordinated advertising efforts for over 100 Realtors in my position as Marketing Specialist at Windermere Real Estate Valley, Inc. In both of these positions I worked directly with local publications and vendors in order to create and deliver ad and print content. In my my most recent position I created numerous websites utilizing css, php and html. I also created tons of banner ads; some animated and some static all created utilizing Adobe CS3 products; fireworks for quick simple gifs and flash for more complicated animations. This position allowed me to take my passion for design and utilize it in the web environment, which is an area that I am constantly striving to learn more about in order to keep up with the changing technology.
