Currently

I work as the graphic designer for Bianco Tours. I took over the position when I was new to design and have since helped to update the look as well as the usability of many different things within the company. I designed and coded the current web site, I create flyers that get sent to senior groups, a yearly mailer that gets sent out to over 6,000 customers, I have redesigned countless forms for more efficient use within the office, I design and cut vinyl decals for the sides of the motorcoaches, and many more small design jobs for random uses. I have also done some freelance work, I created and managed a website for a bar and have made promotional flyers for various companies.

I’ve become very versatile because I am the only designer on site and I have to come up with a solution to whatever is thrown at me, however, at this point in my career I want a position where I am able to work with other creative people, share ideas and further my knowledge. I have the skills, now I want to be able to apply them to a company where I can grow myself as well as the company I become a part of.
