I am interested in a Graphic Designer/Art Director position.
Please check out my online resume & portfolio:
I have worked with Acura, Lexus, Toyota, Honda and many other car companies. I have a BS in Industrial Design, Visual Communications from Ohio State University & have 10+ years experience in promotional marketing, advertising, corporate branding, front-end web design & point-of-purchase design. I'm passionate about print, layout & typography & feel that my work reflects my unique creative vision. I have extensive experience with Macs and currently works in CS5. Having worked with private design firms as well as within a corporate environment, I have produced many types of collateral in the print arena including: catalogs, brochures, posters, direct mail, packaging, logos & identity systems, web pages & banners and POP displays.
I am available immediately for freelance or full time opportunities. My last job was Senior Art Director at Easy Life Furniture, directing their corporate identity, designing their bi-monthly full-page newspaper ads & maintaining their web site. Before this, I was at Esportia Intl., directing & producing graphics for POP displays & packaging for sleepwear and intimate apparel. Prior to this I was a Senior Art Director for Phoenix Marketing working with clients such as AIG SunAmerica, The San Diego Chargers, Eaglerider & Pacific Life. Before that I worked at the Toyota Campus in Torrance as a Senior Designer & Art Director designing and managing inter-departmental design work. I started my design career in Columbus, Ohio. My last position in Ohio was with McCann-Erickson, a multi-media advertising agency based in New York. Our satellite office worked exclusively with Wendy's Intl. where I was a Senior Art Director creating POP displays & posters for Wendy's franchise restaurants.
I am a detail oriented designer & have always carried projects through from conception to finished printed product. I am well trained to multi-task, working well as an individual or within a team environment. Having been exposed to a wide range of clientele in variegated industries such as: finance, medicine, food & restaurant, hotel & recreation and retail marketing, I feel I can bring a panorama of experiences to your table. I've also had the chance of interacting directly with the client on many different levels including designing and selling print campaigns. I explain the motives, audience expectations, aesthetic components and thinking behind everything I present and work in conjunction with the client to find the best solution to his/her particular design quandary. I have practical knowledge in production, refining details and meeting deadlines. If you would like to contact me to view my portfolio, I will be available at my home number, or you can leave a message or contact me by e-mail and I will respond promptly.
Thank you so much for your time.
