Experience

Freelance Designer

August 2008–present

I have designed a range of materials for print and Web, including brochures, posters, banners, packaging, logos, magazines, and books. I have worked with clients on small personal projects, requiring creativity and cooperation, and on large-scale corporate projects, requiring efficiency and precision. Freelancing has sharpened my ability to anticipate needs and make my clients feel understood.

Design Consultant

Asbury University, JRN 306 · Fall 2013

I helped the students in Asbury’s Print and Digital Magazines class produce a magazine from start to finish. I lectured on graphic design theory and InDesign paradigms, taught students to construct a grid, offered one-on-one feedback, directed critiques, and supervised preflight and print production.

Design Intern

Asbury University, Office of Public Relations · Fall 2008

I worked with the in-house graphic designer to produce material for school events. I learned how to follow brand identity standards and supervise print production. When Asbury College became Asbury University, I helped redesign the school logo.

Web and Graphic Designer

Asbury University, Development Department · Summer 2008

I taught myself the department’s new content management system, then used it to build a social networking site for Asbury alumni. My work included designing the site architecture, assembling each page in the CMS, and conducting a training session for alumni.

Relevant undergraduate coursework

Graphic Design I and II, Interactive Media I and II, Special Events Seminar (Asbury’s student film festival production class), additional projects from many classes

Skills

I am highly proficient with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator, desktop publishing software (including iWork and Office), and OS X. I have experience with WordPress, and I learn new software quickly. I also have experience in print management and proofreading.
