After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, I left for Minneapolis – a town steeped in advertising know-how. My time working for Bozell Advertising, Lacek Group/Ogilvy Worldwide and Thomson Reuters has left me with a priceless education in the art of building customer connections using design and technology.
My experience includes concepts through final art for print-based, environmental and social media advertising, however, most of my work involves developing static, animated GIF, and HTML5 online banner ads that are responsive and mobile friendly.
Finding new and creative directions while staying true to Brand guidelines is a space that I've worked within while at Thomson Reuters. I'm as adept at developing a new identity for a company or product, as I am at picking up existing Branding and taking it where it needs to go.
My primary role as Senior Web Designer has been to develop concepts through final digital files for marketing and eCommerce sites that promote businesses and products throughout the US and internationally. I'm skilled at designing entire sites or individual pages.
The process of creating Web sites that provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users has been job #1 for me. This has included involvement in the process of integrating Web site content, including aspects of branding, design, code and usability factors.
I began my career working in print. Collateral, advertising, and brochure creative are projects I enjoy when they become available. I also have experience in trade show material creative, signage, and wall graphics as well as high page-count projects.
I consider myself new to packaging design. It's a space I've really enjoyed as it's related to my involvement in product development and inventing. Packaging provides an excellent opportunity to interact with and influence the consumer.
I enjoy working with internal and external clients to serve sales and branding opportunities. This has involved a demonstrated ability to partner with marketers, account managers, writers, content strategists and developers to ensure projects enjoy successful outcomes and stay within budget.
