For 10 years I worked as a Senior Corporate Designer for a large direct-mail company in Central Massachusetts that specializes in servicing the needs of small business owners. That decade allowed me to understand and learn what a small business owner needs to succeed and grow. I am proud to say I put myself through college while working for my father, who continues to run his own business.
I am a creative person with a deep understanding of design, animation, printing, and technology. With a solid history in corporate identity, packaging, print collateral, logo design, advertising, annual reports, production, and retail and catalog design, I am dedicated to applying my vision, technology, and resources to meet the design objectives of my customers and produce consistently high-quality products.
Video and photography is another one of my skills - from taking the footage/photos, editing and enhancing them to best convey the message for each project. I have also created How-To-Videos, print collateral, and trade show graphics.
I am also familiar developing email and advertising campaigns that focus on new product releases, press releases and promotional communications that run with social media outlets, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, to name a few. By concentrating on Relationship Building instead of selling, you can steadily reap the rewards from the professional growth of your business!
