Graphic Designer, Herbert-Halback in Orlando, FL. This is a urban planning and landscape design firm. I worked here between graduating from University of Florida until a teaching position in the following academic year. My main responsibility was to support the marketing department in numerous multi page document proposals, internal advertising for client appreciation, assisting the Urban planners in marketing materials for public planning meetings, and production for landscape and urban design projects that needed design support for signage and sculpture.
Designer, College of Fine Arts Office of the Dean. Responsible for design and production of alumni newsletter and additional materials required for the promotion of the programs. This includes a logo design for SAAH, school of art and art history.
Communications Coordinator, Vision Business Products in Orlando. I worked for this national corporation for 5 years at their headquarters in Orlando. My primary responsibility was an annual catalog printed in English and French with approximately a 20,000 print run. I managed the entire operation from securing advertising and coordinating the entire budget thru print process as well as the selection of products with the sales data and the vendors, and the design of the entire document including art direction of the covers. Additional responsibilities included internal newsletters and collateral material for an annual convention meeting of all of the national offices.
Please note that I made a conscious choice not to take on additional clients during my time as a design educator because I wanted to commit all of my energies on becoming a better educator and all of the demands of the tenure-track process including, but not limited to creative scholarly research. As I have decided to leave the academic institution to pursue a reinvigorated career in design, I'm at the top of my game as a creative thinker and designer.
