Available for work
I am a graphic designer with a wide variety of interests and talents. Since graduation I have had two jobs related to the field of graphic design. Unfortunately I was laid off from both as the economic situation of western New York continues to degrade. Although it was very frustrating to leave these positions, I was able to accumulate a variety of experiences. The combination of these jobs, freelance work, college work, and an internship has made me develop into a much stronger graphic designer.
My degree is in Fine Arts with a Concentration in Graphic Design from Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester NY. Going to a small college allowed me to follow many of my passions and gave me a diverse education, benefiting from professors with ties to RIT. My education equipped me with the tools to jump in and problem solve, pulling knowledge from many places and having no fear of asking for help.
Thanks to my education and personal exploration, my interests and talents are deep and wide. My passion is typography and layout design, but I am also very good with vector illustration, as well as, photography. I work best on deadlines, but am able to motivate myself, and am a conscientious and hard worker. Iâ€™m a quick thinker and work well with a wide variety of people. I enjoy working closely with clients to ensure that my work exceeds their expectations and serves their needs. In college, I minored in marketing to give me better insight into the needs of clients, not just their demands.
Through both college and post-college Iâ€™ve had the advantage of doing freelance work beyond my jobs. This has given me more outlets to practice my skills, and helped me become a well-rounded graphic designer. I have also done an internship at the Rochester Museum and Science Center, Rochester NY. This was a great opportunity and taught me much about design applications and let me apply my interest in illustration and design. As a photographer, Iâ€™ve put my skills to many uses. This includes photographing stage performances, small concerts, local events, portraits and weddings. The combination of my work experience, marketing and graphic design and photography helps me bring depth and detail to my work.
I look forward to speaking with you about your company and how I can be an integral part of your team. Feel free to call or email me at your convenience.
