Hi, I have broad and deep experience with national and international clients. I am not a Web or Social Media expert. My strengths are in print, direct mail, marketing and more. I am easy to work with, have good people skills, and bring much more to the table than one might think, depending on your needs. I am able to produce the work that I or others design, either on my own, or as part of a team. I am happy to work on both large and small accounts, design is design. I've worked in the retail, trade, B2B, financial services and consumer packaged goods categories for national and international companies. ACCOUNT LIST: Apple, Samsung, Scena, Analogue, Ring Communications, CIT, Trade Dimensions, Swiss American Securities, College Board SAT, College Board CLEP, College Board ACCUPLACER, College Board SpringBoard, ORIX Financial Service, James C. Edwards & Co., Inc., ASLK-CGER Bank, Carco, Sesame Workshop, Credit Suisse, Credit Suisse Asset Management, Credit Suisse Private Banking, Citibank,Innotech, Superex, GoodTimes Home Video. OTC Pharma experience included Sandoz, and Winthrop. Triaminicin and TheraFlu for Sandoz and Winthrop, Neo Synephrine Campho-Phenique, PhisoDerm and PhisoPUFF. Here are some specific strengths that I think would be helpful: - Outstanding page layout skills: I take a very pragmatic approach to dividing the page correctly to fit all the items and copy, with the emphasis that’s required, while keeping the typography readable - People skills: Whether colleagues or clients I welcome feedback, direction and constructive criticism - Work ethic: I take all deadlines and project goals very seriously. I am extremely mission-oriented - Software: I am intermediate to advanced at Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Word and Excel; can learn more as needed - Image manipulation: My skills in illustration and ability in Photoshop keep me on top of the retouching/digital illustration curve - Print production: From CMYK file prep through the print process and vendor relations, I have done it, including budgets and estimating - Creativity: I am a professional, able to understand the practical side of business and production art vs. creative priorities. To summarize, I am a doer with an eye toward creative that works. And on the people side, I am collaborative and respect EVERYONE’S efforts—at any level—who work toward our team goals. I’m most easily reached via text or email; contact info at the bottom, but the phone works too, just not as efficient, as you may know. Here are some links to my samples, all of which I designed and produced and many of which ran with my copy. Aaron GENERAL SAMPLES: More samples organized by type of work:
