About Joe

I'm a professional remote freelance graphic designer, located in Southern California, with over 20 years experience in advertising and marketing. I'm fast, organized, well-versed and creative with expert level Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator skills.

Professional, yet easy going, I adhere to schedules like my career depends on it. Creating images and exercising typography, I moved through the ranks from Jr. Art Director to Creative Director working with agencies and brands you're familiar with. My artwork has been approved and used to market Fortune 500 Companies in industries such as; Food & Grocery, Oil & Energy, Auto Racing, Tax & Finance, Gaming & Casinos, Municipalities/Tourism, Real Estate Developers, and other Retail businesses, large and small.

From conception to publication, in both print and digital media, I understand and exceed the standards. Aside from being an expert with Photoshop and Illustrator, I'm also highly proficient in Adobe Indesign and Power Point software on both PC and Mac platforms.

Originally from Houston, I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, and hold a BA in Visual Communication Design. I've also completed multiple Executive/Management training seminars and weekend software courses such as 'Photoshop WOW' and Rogen Training.

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.

Graphic Design

I have worked as an Art Director in advertising agencies for the last 20+ years, starting as a Jr. Art Director and working my way to Creative Director. In the last 3 years I left the 'Agency Life' to become a Remote Freelance Graphic Designer where I retain multiple accounts myself and work with other advertising agencies to insure they are able to retain clients through my graphic design work when their staffers are unable to deliver quality work. I've been responsible for complete graphic design work of major brands around the globe.
