I am an experienced Designer qualified for any position that involves a specific set of instructions, regrading administrative tasks and preferably design related assignments. My most recent work experience includes working with fashion handbag accessories and apparel design. I have worked in the hand bag and accessories industry for nearly 6 years. My Job position as Assistant Designer//CAD artist required me to be an innovative designer and develop one of a kind product that set us apart from the market place.
As an assistant designer in accessories I worked with the design team on brainstorming new print and development concepts for the line. All print work was created for specific deliveries and buyer requests. I created CAD drawings for and any specified project discussed with the team ( mostly buyer cad requests and tech packs) . I digitally rendered swatches off swatch cards and edited existing or created new handbag and accessory techpacks. I would on day to day basis change out prints or materials on hand bag and accessory bodies for linesheets and techpacks, I also recolored and edited artwork for proper printing and I put out Email content and line sheets for sales department. My role as a Assistant designer required me to simultaneously work with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Excel and Adobe software.
Please take a look at my portfolio and see that I have had my design work in Nordstrom, Saks off 5th, Hsn, Target, Paper source, Ross etc. Aside from my work experience in accessories, Freelance projects are another big part of my portfolio and will show my wide array of design work in apparel. Through out my career in the buyer/vendor world that is retail I have learned to be punctual, reliable, client-focused, and cognizant of critical deadlines. I am a talented, friendly out going fashion enthusiast with many unique ideas and strong attention to detail.
