My Life In Design
For 4.5 years I worked as a Marketing Coordinator for an Australian company where I had exposure to all facets of the marketing and advertising department from graphic design to PR, advertising, media booking & scheduling, sponsorship management, event management, copywriting, proof reading, sales and marketing. I have also worked for a range of small Canadian businesses assisting them with their branding, print advertising and merchandise design.
I am a skilled freelance graphic designer with a decade of experience in the field. I excel at desktop design and have a wide range of capabilities for both print and digital use. I have done a wide variety of freelance work including logo design, wedding invitations and event signage, flyers, posters, social media graphics and promotional/POS material for companies in both Australia and Canada. I am creative, have a keen eye for detail and the ability to think and act strategically under pressure while managing multiple projects simultaneously.
One of the greatest strengths of being a designer with a background in marketing/communications is that not only can I handle the graphic aspects of a project but I also fully understand the importance of maintaining existing branding and customizing the design for the appropriate media.
