I strove to keep up with new techniques and trends in design, and was the Illustrator “go-to gal”. I created and maintained multiple company websites and the PDPS product catalog. My clients were truly “mine” as I was expected to handle projects from concept to completion in this position. This meant I wore many hats from Customer Service Rep to Art Director, Pre-Press Technician to even Packaging and Shipping Handler in some instances.
