When considering a graphic design or web design service, choose one that brings talent and expertise to your marketing projects.
From designing in a print shop to managing a web design team, my experience is vast and spans over twenty years. And for the past five, I’ve worked exclusively as a design consultant for numerous businesses.
Ready for Anything
After graduating from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, I began my career working in a tiny print shop. I was hired to handle simple design tasks but my assignments varied day-to-day according to the needs of the business. One day I might take phone calls or manage the company’s bank account. The next I might help run the offset press or deliver printed materials. My career didn’t begin quite as I imagined but I was taught to always be prepared for the unexpected.
All About Teamwork
For a time I worked for an apparel company with a team of artists designing screen printed clothing. With licenses from Marvel and DC Comics (amongst others), it was our task to illustrate, ink, scan, and ultimately, digitize those designs for printing.
Now I’ve always had artistic talent and enjoyed using those skills, but more importantly, it was the first time I worked as part of a team. Our collaboration was invigorating as we shared ideas and tackled jobs together. Today, I still bring a positive spirit to any team and help contribute to the success of the business.
Graphic Design Experience
Most of my experience using traditional graphic design skills came during a pair of jobs at a real estate firm and later at a footwear company. During that time, I tackled all manner of printed materials such as ads, brochures, and packaging.
The Dot Com Boom and Web Design Experience
When the internet exploded I taught myself HTML and took on contract assignments designing static websites. I had built three sites before landing a full-time gig as a web designer working on emails, banners, and microsites. And since those early days of the web, I’ve continued to add to my developer skillset while working on emails, squeeze pages, WordPress and more.
My Design Experience Can Work for You
I’ve spent the past five years as a self-employed consultant, taking on contract jobs for various clients across the country. From logos and flyers, banner graphics and websites, is there something I might do for your organization? Why not contact me and find out.
Whether you’re a startup or have been in business for years, you’ll benefit from having the creative for your graphic design or web design needs to be handled by an experienced professional.
