I was involved with the creative and production process for a large variety of projects, including brochures, web/interactive graphics, retail displays, vehicle wraps, posters, logos, catalogs, packaging, outdoor, event marketing campaigns, and much more. The workflow structure at XG-ad allowed me to act as lead in almost all aspects of certain projects, including Creative Director, Art Director, Production Designer, Imaging Specialist, Photographer, Editor, and Copywriter.
My eye for detail helped me lead the production department as Quality Control Director and Production Manager. This included checking all aspects of production for both print and web, including the quality of the digital imaging, copy accuracy, spelling, grammar, color, gathering print quotes, verifying print specs and dies, creating mock-ups, coordinating printers, press checks, etc. Regularly attending imaging seminars, print-house seminars, and viewing online tutorials helped me stay current with new techniques and trends.
