Graphic Design

I am a strong planner and problem solver with excellent time management skills, exceptional organizational skills and a solid commitment to delivering the best customer service while exercising good judgment and thoroughness with effective interpersonal communication skills. I have a strong ability to identify, define and analyze issues and to offer solid recommendations. I am a results-oriented graphic designer accustomed to surpassing expectations in deadline-driven environments.

18 years experience working in the Design/Print industry since graduating, with honours, from the two-year Graphics Technician-Printing program at Algonquin College in 1998.

I have held varying positions in the design and print industry such as desktop operator, desktop publisher, pre-press technician, graphic arts technician, digital colour press operator, graphic designer and web developer.

Culture Satellite Account

The Culture Satellite Account is an accounting framework created to better measure the economic importance of culture, arts, heritage and sport in the Canadian economy. These pieces were distributed across Canada to the CSA partners who then shared them with Canadians via social media. They were also displayed on the Canadian Heritage Government of Canada. The initial concept was sketched by hand then recreated in Illustrator. The logo and wordmark were added in InDesign. (Audience: All Canadians)
