Ever since I was a kid design has been my greatest passion and motivation, not just on paper and screen but in life. Every morning I wake up, I design my overall appearance while considering my mood and how I want to present the best version of myself into the world then I do it. As happy and content as I am designing, I feel like I have graduated past the worker bee role by only doing the projects assigned to me, then going home. My latest ambition is to have a role where I can be a part of the strategizing process, lead a team, while still completing design projects. In previous roles, I thrived in environments where in addition to creating innovative marketing materials, I piloted new marketing strategies, leveraging KPIs to determine campaign efficiency and adjusting to obtain results.
For over 15 years, I have designed, developed, and coded top-notch printed and digital marketing materials for a variety of companies ranging from large corporate B2Bs and B2Cs to local mom and pops. Digital projects I worked on range from Full-Stack websites, email campaigns, ad banners, pay per click marketing to videos, and holograms. With printed materials, I’ve created everything from illustrations, logos, business cards, brochures, branding/ad campaigns, direct mailing pieces to large format posters, banners, and tradeshow graphics. I have a huge sense of humor, with a love for puns, and try to find ways to incorporate them into the messaging. I have a solid understanding of what goes into the print process after working in a print shop for about a year and I understand programming languages and terminology used in the tech field from working as a front-end web developer alongside engineers. With the knowledge and experience, I acquired, I have successfully trained and mentored colleagues, developing them to become company assets.
As a designer, I would compare my work to a good IPA, compelling, crisp, clean, and refreshing with my personal touch. As a coworker/employee, I am committed to doing what it takes to make a project achieve excellence, sell products, services, and ideas which requires using great communication skills and intuition, asking the right questions, and listening effectively. I lead by example, remaining open, and patient. I genuinely care about the success of my peers so I take the time to explain and review steps, processes, and contexts of projects in ways that resonate with them.
