Lead Multimedia Designer
Oct 2017 - Sep 2020 (2 years 11 months)
As the main digital designer I was an responsible for creating both in house and external marketing for a variety of platforms. Video animation promotions, online ads, eblasts, slot promos, phone graphics, billboards, and much more. Create large motion graphics for concerts, displayed over 14 screens. I helped schedule and moderate our digital asset publisher Cisco Vision along with the director of A/V. I also co-ran wayfinding throughout the casino. These are large projects with very high priority. Although we worked under an art director we often directed our own projects parallel to our managers overall and corporate style guide.
