I collaborated with 2 other designers, with 10+ years of Menu Co. experience each, creating an artist manual laying out daily procedures and technical specifications taking training from 1 year to 2 weeks.
Off Page Products - Clipper Magazine
2014 - 2015 (1 year)
I was hired during their biggest sales incentive to date learning 30 new products within a few weeks. I learn fast and was able to retain the information in a quick amount of time to help with the large amount of projects that were coming in. I learned prioritizing to best effectively help work get completed as the company needed. Being able to be flexible to what the team needs became my strength. When the team wins, I win. I sat in for management weekly, overseeing daily priorities, artists and account personnel. I enjoyed teaching and being the point person who people could go to to resolve their issues. If I didn't know how to solve their problem I knew who to go to that would know the answer.
