About GERHARD

I have had the fortunate experience to make a career out of Graphic Design. It's a field I love and have been active in for over 20 years. I have taken my career experiences and have been able to teach a graphic design course one semester a year to keep my skills sharp for students and my Junior Designers.

I have been a Graphic Designer for over 20 years with 8 of those years in a Creative Director position. I am also a Graphic Design Instructor at Red Rocks Community College and have about 13 year experience as an instructor. My goal is to encourage and educate students on how to be a successful designer not only through technical skills, but also have a mindset and time management skills for them to be attractive to employers.

I specialize in the Adobe Creative Suite especially Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for Prepress and print design. I have been successful in helping new and experienced Designers as well as Project Managers and Marketing Specialists.

I also create illustrations for print and web as well as self publish my own comic book.

Over 20 years experience as a Graphic Designer with experience managing a design department with over 16 designers. I have 8 years of experience as a Creative Director and Brand Manager. I have experience in maintaining a Freelance Graphic Design Studio--I have 13 years as a Graphic Design Instructor.

My goals for each student is to get an idea of what employers and agencies look for in Graphic Designer as well as skill sets to become a successful Freelancer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to helping achieve your goals.
