Due to the evolution of the design industry I've tried to expand my skill set beyond just graphics into areas such as: print design, web design, audio and video production, photography, giclée (inkjet) printing as well as letterpress printing. I focus on creating clean, relevant and identity driven designs. I've been in the creative field for nearly 6 years and have had the opportunity to work with some of the industries leading printers, designers and photographers.
Roles include: customer relations, project lead and web developement.
Contracted to develop and implement brand identity, web development, creative leadership team and audio/video production.
Worked closely with well known artists for order fulfillment, customer relations, giclée (inkjet) printing, letterpress printing and packing/shipping.
Primary focus of landscape, architectural and still life photography.
