where i've been
THE MARKETING ARM
SENIOR ART DIRECTOR
The beauty of the marketing arm is their self-proclaimed love for scrappiness and the importance of big ideas. A willingness to dive headlong into new, unknown territory is a must; if you can't take initiative, you won't last long. I have worked with countless brands, learning the nuances and intricacies of each. I have concepted marketing initiatives from the ground up, making the initial pitch, establishing key visuals, and executing accompanying design elements. I have Managed video content projects from storyboards through to the final edit, directing production teams and liaising with vendors. I've worn many hats over the last few years, and it suits me just fine.
If you went into a Radio-Shack anywhere in the world during my tenure, you most definitely glimpsed my work - you may have even seen me on the side of the building! In addition to developing in-store POS, I designed logos, direct mail pieces, digital elements, and corporate presentations, created print-ready mechanicals, and worked in the on-site proof-of-concept store to ensure all our creations performed flawlessly situation.
FOR RENT MAGAZINE
NATIONAL ACCOUNTS DESIGNER
You know the apartment magazines on the racks outside the sliding doors at the grocery store? I designed those! It was a fantastic first design job. I had tons of creative freedom and learned about pagination, live, trim, bleed, and how to make your production artists love you :)
DESL GROUP LLC
SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER
This tiny agency did it all. I was a graphic designer, account coordinator, production artist, and web developer; all rolled into one. I was lucky to be privy to some serious mentorship and spent time at length working directly with clients and communicating with vendors.
WALT DISNEY WORLD
My first job out of college! I can't give too many details because I was sworn to secrecy, but I can tell you that I got to spend a lot of time with a very famous mouse.
Carefully mentored by Joe the owner (Get it? Mo-JOE?) I a got a 1-on-1 web design education as well as real-world experience working directly with clients and even taking point on a few projects!
