I am currently working in an active contract in a global foodservice marketing department. I am responsible for working with the Marketing Manager to create all internal and external print & web advertisements. In addition to the corporate identity, I design for over 15 different brands from concept to production with several print & web publications nationwide. As a team, we are responsible to create effective print & web collateral to not only promote sales for various brand products, but to deliver high-end materials for each.
As the sole creative designer for my first 4 years of employment, I worked with the partners to design Million Dollar Media's identity/brand from the ground up. I was responsible for designing, editing, maintaining all projects in print, web, mobile, and social, from start to finish. My role was to create clean, cohesive, eye-catching print & web design for national & global clients including, Heineken USA brands, Hooters, Sports Authority, LaCroix Sparkling Water, Pirelli, AutoTrader, CMA Music Awards, MGM Properties, Buffalo Wild Wings, TGI Fridays, Applebee's and more. I oversaw our Jr. Graphic Designer, coordinated weekly creative department meetings and handled outsource print production to ensure deadlines be met. I was also responsible to meet and work directly with my clients.

Some clients include, New York Knicks, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department S.W.A.T Team, Ocean Cleaning Service, Clearwater Public Library Coffee Shop, Proven Industries Lock Technology, Good 4 U Events, Hybridge Learning, Garden State Social Sports, and more.

Madison Square Garden also ordered custom pairs including custom designed packaging which sold to the public during the 2013-2014 season.
I was responsible for offering profitable, yet competitive quoting to all clients to acquire or continue business. I managed client projects from design to production finishing. My tasks included identity packaging, catalogs, flyers, brochures, menus, table tents, large format POS from banners to vehicle wraps. I managed all in-house and outsource production to ensure on time delivery based on client need. Managed up to 5 staff members.
