Let's start with my main strength. I've had over 15 years experience as a production oriented desktop publisher using Adobe Creative Suite. As a desktop technician at R.R. Donnelley & Sons, I've composed and laid out thousands of pages in InDesign: catalogs, directories, health insurance books, financial documents like annual reports and stock prospectuses; yes, the list goes on. Making up these projects involves creating graphics in Illustrator, and scanning or touching up photos and scans in Photoshop. i have also worked out helpful shortcuts to apply text styles to large blocks of imported text, including from Excel spreadsheet into tabbed text or tables. Most importantly, I can demonstrate how to output these documents to Acrobat PDFs that will pass the requirements of any print site.
If you need to get up to speed on something besides Adobe Creative Suite, I have equal experience in Quark XPress, and can still show you a thing or two about PageMaker.
