Resumé

Talent

I have experience designing a wide range of print collateral including packaging, brochures, reports, business papers, point of sale promotions, environmental graphics, and product catalogs; and experience designing presentations using PowerPoint and Prezi

I can manage a project from start to finish; from concept, through design and pre-press, to the final press check

I’m comfortable working solo or collaborating with a team, and can provide creative direction to photographers, illustrators, and other designers

I’m able to balance creative vision with technical expertise and project restrictions (deadlines and budgets), producing consistently high-quality work that meets clients’ objectives

I have a keen attention to detail through a highly critical eye—both to my own work and the work of others
