I have been in the design industry, in a number of different applications of graphic and multimedia design, for over seventeen years. I have worked on several corporate and small business projects, such as Toyota, Dodge, Hyundai, Tacori Jewelers, Hirsch International, AFC Chiropractic, Boxxer World, and PetSmart. With a degree in Graphic Design and Multimedia, combined with extensive hands-on experience, while holding an Adobe Certification, an understanding of the industry and marketing strategies comes natural. In my recent position as packaging designer/production designer, I worked on several brands and provided decisions in the quality of printed and designed product for the company's proprietary brands. In a previous position as the Art Director, I was a key member of a rapidly growing business that had expanded from 1 million to over 200 million dollars in yearly sales. I gained the knowledge of how to successfully take a company's image, apply it to the target market and create several brands that work for both print and web. My previous positions, as well as my current position as a Freelance Designer, have given me the experience of running a business and a department, while providing top notch design and branding standards for several different market types in a fast-paced work environment.
