About me

I have comprehensive experience with the Adobe suite of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign as well as some video editing experience with Premiere. I have delivered print and digital campaigns to multiple international markets including the United States, United Kingdom, France, and Austria. My detail-oriented print campaigns encompass international metro ads, billboards, TPC, posters, flyers, mailers, and internal documentation for multiple languages and cultural environments. My knowledge of, and exposure to, digital creatives has been broadened through international banner ads, website design, UI/UX design, app design, mixed format social posts, image carousels, email design, video editing, animations, and digital typography. I have a proven record of one hour turnaround times where I’ve inventively tackled complex banner creatives for international markets. In case that wasn’t challenging enough, using which would resonate with the disparate customs while maintaining the core campaign messaging. One solution which proved very engaging was using puns from each language to tie the phrases to our core user base. powerful. Built comprehensively, they allow a wide array of exportable sizes that use easily swappable components which can adjust for tons of photography or copy options. Additionally, the ability of others to open my live files and easily make changes is something I always take into account; therefore the layers are accurately labelled, colour coded, and dead simple to navigate. Thankfully I’ve been fortunate enough to work alongside talented teams of marketers and SEO specialists who have taught me lessons in their fields. Together we worked on large tactile corporate events like sponsoring the Virgin 5k or doing a wild poster initiative throughout the streets of Paris and their metro. Yet, our digital approach has been even more exhaustively targeted using click-through user data, Adsense, and Google AdWords. There’s a huge pool of skills for me to pull from that I can use to make something great with the right direction and the right team. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
