I presently work for a corporation specializing in direct marketing pieces. Since I work in a company that has printing and manufacturing facilities on-site, I have an excellent background on creating a job from concept stage all the way through final product.
I was hired as a production artist but in the years since I have evolved into what our company needed most which was computer/web graphics. I took it upon myself to help our company grow by learning web design. I was involved in the overhaul of our company website. We had an end-user problem for navigation and the functionality of our site. I stepped in and did principle photography and editing for our web page. The result has increased web traffic and better usability for our sales department and customers.
Recently I have been utilized to create print and on-line ads/e-blasts for our company. This opportunity has helped me flex my web skills further. This helped with an increase in sales inquires on our products.I created and maintain our youtube channel. Our main complaint from customers was that our static images did not convey how our products worked. Once we created movies that showed our products “in action” it helped increase customers understanding of the functionality of our products.
I am active on Lynda.com where I brush up on the latest web/graphic courses. I have also in the past been active on Teamtreehouse.com learning coding and a bit of computer programming.
