I have 10+ years experience in graphic design. I’ve worked in both in-house departments (creative services) and an ad agency. My graphic design experience includes a very wide variety of projects, including anything from logos to full ad campaigns. I’m just as comfortable working on a project on my own as well as working with or directing a team of designers. I always keep myself apprised of the latest trends and looks in advertising, to stay current with designs that will pull in and hold the prospective audience interest.
I also have 5 years of web design experience. I have designed web sites from start to finish from designing the look and feel of the site to building the web site resulting in the finished working product. Designing and building the web sites is only first part of web design. After the creation of the sites, I have maintained sites, updating information and graphics as needed, including Flash elements. As the web site’s client grows also adding pages and complete sections to the web site keeping it current.
I am highly proficient with most of Adobe’s software. I’ve worked with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator beginning with the very first versions. My software experience also includes Dreamweaver, Flash and Fireworks along with a list of others.
I’m a member of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professional) which helps me stay on top with the latest software developments, techniques and trends. I also continuously seek out educational outlets such as seminars and conferences to further my knowledge and enhance my talent.
I also have a website in which you can see my portfolio. This website is www.crossphotographics.com.
