CSG Creative Employee of the Month (7/2021)
Digital Designer, 09/2018–Present
CSG Creative reached out to me to fill their digital designer role. I joined their team, quickly creating cross-platform digital assets for advertising B2B trade shows including animated ecards and social media posts, digital signage, web pages, logos, and core visual identities. I won CSG’s first-ever IAEE “Best in Show” for my AdvaMed MedTech Conference email designs.
For ten years, I created logos and visual identities, print and web graphics, and websites for B2C and B2B small businesses, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs. I drove projects from brief to presentation to execution and delivery of creative concepts. While I no longer freelance, it taught me how to problem-solve in time-sensitive moments and/or within strict budgets.
Director of Digital & Graphic Services, 06/2016–09/2016
I completed an intense, 100+hr/wk short-term job contract to design logo, set art direction, and create and launch a website for the 2017 Texas State Society Black Tie & Boots Presidential Inaugural Ball and other events.
Communications Coordinator (Design), 08/2015–08/2016
I held a few different roles at PMR ranging from production artist, email developer, in-house IT support, and graphic designer for 14 nonprofits, including PMR’s top 5 largest clients. I set the art direction for several events such as AFCEA NOVA 2016 Golf Tournament, GITEC 2016 Summit, and WHFDC’s 35th Anniversary Gala.
Graphic Designer, 02/2010–07/2011
