As a designer I am involved from conceptualization to implementation of design solutions that are on-brand while meeting goals and providing cost savings for clients. I have deep and demonstrated experience in graphic design disciplines, layout, color, typography, and have successfully used this knowledge to create compelling creative designs for over 19 years. I managed the brand for a $2.8B/year worldwide company with 400+ offices and 17,000+ employees for 14 years. I’ve worked with printers and production companies all over the world on a variety of projects as well as co-managed an in-house print shop. I possess expert knowledge in the use of a variety of desktop publishing software to create unique multimedia presentations, web pages, visual products, illustrating concepts, corporate logos, and brochures. I am a flexible team player with a creative flair, originality, and strong visual sense who works well under stressful, deadline-specific situations.
