I have 21 years of professional experience in Graphic Design, Web Development/Design/Maintenance, marketing and I even create an occasional illustration. I'm well versed in all Adobe Creative Cloud print/web design programs on both Mac and PC platforms. I also have the ability to utilize QR codes for mobile landing pages tied to print advertising, and Augmented Reality (AR) technology. I also have familiarity with marketing analytics to track the results of marketing efforts.
In the last 7 years, I've also done more Art Direction and Project Management (2 years of Art Direction/Project Management experience while at Western States, and 5 years of Art Direction experience while running a freelance/subcontract LLC business). In addition, I had been active with lead generation and thought leadership in the web and print industries.
I have worked in Graphic Design and Web Development for the advertising, marketing, publishing, and screen-printing industries. My design work includes results-trackable print campaigns tied to web landing pages and banner ads, direct mail campaigns, catalogs, trade manual/magazine layout, trade show displays, brochures, books, pamphlets/newsletters, photography and illustration.
I always enjoying staying in the forefront - I attend seminars regularly for marketing and advanced software techniques/practices.
* I have also consulted for print vendors to increase their clients' knowledge base with Easy Catalog software for Adobe InDesign, and for Social Media marketing tactics.
