In high school, I completed a two year specialized program in Graphic Design at the Applications and Research Laboratory in Howard County Maryland. I also had the opportunity to work 9 months at Traders Library, a book publishing company as a production design intern during my Senior year.
In college, I completed two internships for a semester each; one was as a gallery intern for the Department of Art at West Chester University and the other was as a graphic design intern for Stratus Interactive, a website development agency.
With 8.5+ years of full time employment at StarChapter, 2 of those years as a Graphic Designer, 3 of those years as a Senior Graphic Designer, 2 year as the Graphic Design Team Lead, and 1+ year as Graphic Design Manager, I have gained an abundance of knowledge in the graphic and web design world.
As StarChapter's Graphic Design Manager my duties include: website template design, client website mock ups, back end software design, email design and coding for monthly newsletters and all marketing campaigns, landing page design and coding, website page design and updates, web banners, eBook creation, video editing, PowerPoint presentations, pdf designs, brochures, infographics, large banners/booth design for shows, and more.
I have 7+ years of freelance experience designing logos, websites, landing pages, podcast covers, social media, sticker design, business cards, banners, signs, and ads for various clients. Clients have varied from starting brand new companies to re-branding existing companies for a fresh new feel. Research of the client's unique market, client personality, color theory, and individual font styling all go into the process of creating a brand that is special and designed exactly for the client.
