The past ten years I have been doing freelance design and production for many clients. It has given me the chance to be self-driven, work on a wide variety of projects including a very successful Apps in the Apple Store, book covers, illustrations, sell sheets, logos, CD packages and more.
Prior to that, I worked for Mrs. Grossman’s Paper Company in Petaluma, California for 29 years. My experience included production and design of stationery products, stickers, packaging, displays, catalogs, sales sheets, promotional materials, signage, labels, calendars, games, logos, business systems, art directed photo shoots and more. I am experienced in all facets of production, design and layout, utilizing InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. Mrs. Grossman’s profited by my ‘eye’ for color, sending me to many press checks, including some overseas. I successfully worked with art directors, clients, pressmen and a team of one to seven designers. I also worked with many vendors. I am detail oriented and keep up with file management and tight deadlines.
