I am currently working at Boston Apparel Company as a Sr. Desktop Artist in the Creative Services Department. I have been working on the Chadwicks catalog and collateral pieces while in this position. This position allowed me to use many programs such as Quark, InDesign, Illustrator
, and Photoshop
. Many duties at this job have made me versatile in any design position. While in this position I have partnered with the VP of Creative Services, Creative Directors and Art
Directors to assist all catalog and collateral design. I have also taken over the IT responsibility of all the Macs in Creative Services, such as program issues or computer
related issues. I have gained the reputation as the go-to-guy for all programs and specifically InDesign. When the company made a decision to migrate all files from quark to InDesign, I was one of the few people that knew how to use InDesign. By training and helping my colleagues we were able to make a seamless switch between programs, and now all of creative services are up to speed on all the benefits of InDesign.
I have also worked at Pre-Press Company as a Preflight Operator. Pre-Press Company is a production house for a numerous amount of text book publishers. As a preflight operator, I ensured that the files were sent to the printer correctly, so that the book can be ripped without any problems. I used many programs on a Mac such as pitstop, acrobat, illustrator, photoshop, quark, indesign, and microsoft office.
Some of my strongest attributes are my love for design and that I am a hard worker. My time management
skills are excellent. When working on a project I keep the due date in mind. This way the files are always on press without delay. I take pride in doing quality work and would not expect anything less from myself.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth with a degree in Graphic Design/Letterform. I learned a lot from the professors that I had. Now I want to be exposed to new ideas. Therefore, if I am hired I will try my best to be a valuable asset to your company. I will work hard and meet all goals set before me.
