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.

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.
While earning my degree in Graphic Design I was taught the Quark Express program. After one year we were given InDesign and were told to teach ourselves. I took on the task and have learned this program inside and out. I have used this program to build catalogs, direct mail, labels, business cards, and many more projects.
I learned the Adobe Photoshop program when I started my college courses at the University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth while Majoring in Graphic Design/Typography. Since then I have used Photoshop for all the simple functions such as crop, re-size and color work. I have since then learned how to retouch all types of images. And create dynamic photographs. As I was learning flash and Dreamweaver I have now also used Photoshop to create templates for websites and files to import into flash that will keep vector shapes that the older Photoshop versions could not do. I have now been able to learn all the small functions such as quick key commands to larger functions on color correction of images. If you would like to learn more about clipping paths, color corrections, image retouching or even just using Photoshop for the fun photo manipulation.
Since graduating with a Degree from the University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth with a Degree in Graphic Design/Typography I have been working in the print production roles. I have trained all of the new/old employees and Interns. Starting with Textbooks and later moving into catalogs. all the main tools that are needed will be in the Adobe Production Suite. (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign and Adobe Acrobat.) These are all necessities while working in the Desktop Publishing field.
