About Dawn

I am a professional graphic designer with extensive experience using design software on a daily basis. I offer over 30 years of experience in all phases of graphic design using the Macintosh platform. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications/Advertising from Cal State Fullerton and a certificate in Graphic Design from the University of Irvine. I began my career as a paste-up artist at a newspaper working my way to the position of Art Director at a promotional advertising agency.

As an owner of my own design studio for over 20 years I use InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to produce advertising, logos, newsletters, catalogs, book covers and web images. I pride myself on my quality of work and my professionalism. I have worked closely with agencies, publications, printers, small businesses and local non-profit organizations. My interest in tutoring has developed from requests by my clients to walk them through the use of design software. I have also taught my children to use these programs for school projects. Whether you want to learn enough to complete a project or more I can guide you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I began with Pagemaker as a publishing program and was comfortable when InDesign came out. I use Indesign for laying out publications, ads and other forms of multi page documents. This program is easy to teach someone to use if they want more professional files that what can be done in Microsoft Word.

Desktop Publishing

My experience as a graphic designer has included desk top publishing. I have used publishing software beginning with Pagemaker, Quark and now InDesign. I have some experience using Microsoft Word for basis layout. I am not experienced with Microsoft Publisher.

Graphic Design

I have a BA degree in Advertising, Cal state Fullerton. I have a certificate in Graphic Design, UCI. Have been a past up artist and art director of over 35 years. I have my own graphic design business for over 30 years

Macintosh

Have used MAC since my early days as a graphic designer at an ad agency. I wouldn't use anything else for designing. I am quite comfortable with this platform.
