Revolution3 is a triathlon event company. My responsibilities were to oversee the art department, consisting of a team of junior designers, interns, and print managers - with the goal of developing and expanding the Revolution3 brand in America while gaining new customers. I personally worked on the graphic development of a myriad of creative products. Those products spanned a wide spectrum from print to web to video; and included: magazine ads, racing kits, vehicle wraps, websites, medals, marketing collateral, business cards, posters, clothing, video motion graphics, and much more. I coordinated and oversaw the in-house print shop. Producing marketing materials, event signage and banner graphics. Providing accurate time and cost estimates for each tactic. When travelling to the triathlon events, I acted as a media director, coordinating photographers, streaming video, live website updates, and the operation of a jumbotron screen.
