AIMEE SPROGIS Focused Graphic Solutions "That pretty stick you applied to the LIA flyer certainly knows how to transform a wallflower into a Cinderella! Great job!" Richard Diedrichsen, President Lordship Improvement Association DESIGN SUCCESS Many of my designs have won the control position in direct mail advertising, doubly saving the company by avoiding outside designers fees CREATIVE RELATIONSHIPS Developed outstanding creative relationship with company president. Together we brainstormed, conceived and produced top quality direct mail promotions, corporate pieces, as well as personal graphics. This led to gaining more creative freedom, while streamlining concept-thru-approval stages DEVELOPED WIKI PROPOSAL The goal was to create a company encyclopedia by eliminating repetitive teaching for all personnel, from freelance staff to upper management SOFTWARE TRAINING Instrumental in elevating company from point A to point B regarding the latest software trends. An example is Adobe Acrobat, where I taught promotional editors how to use the comment and markup tools, as well as devising a plan with the Print Purchasing Department requiring all printers previously printing from live files to accepting the more stable Acrobat PDF files. I also led the move from Quark to InDesign, by having my team use it for small projects, gradually switching over completely in our department, and ultimately becoming the InDesign "go-to" team for the rest of the company.
