Freelance graphic designer by night. Feeding my passion for design and problem solving, I make ideas look great while helping my clients visually communicate the essence of their business through well conceived concepts where thoughts, ideas, visions, and goals are translated into a visual media that can be understood by anyone. I have experience working with several professionals in the fitness industry and well established major commercial brands. Everything from logo design and brand development, direct mail pieces to packaging, posters, tshirts, point of sale displays, to ebook publications, web interfaces and sales pitch pages.
Prisma Graphics Inc. is a full service graphic arts studio specializing in colour correction and the production of camera-ready packaging prototypes for television, print, focus groups, & new product launches for the world's largest makers of consumer products since 1989.
- Coordinate and work directly with clients on incoming jobs - responsible for reviewing requirements creating/e-mailing layouts, and ensuring client approval
- Computer work included design, digital touch ups, preparing film separations, revising supplied artwork, and adjusting/matching colours to product packaging
- Production work involved applying chromatec, cutting, mounting, and assembling packaging by hand for products to be advertised on billboards, printed ads, commercials, and for use in focus groups
As a member of the design team, I provided creative input and conceptualized identities and layouts to help develop concepts for product pitches on various projects.
