Illustrator, Art Director, Freelancer, Artist, Designer
I have completed a Degree in Visual Communication, which opened the creative door of marketing and design. I’ve been introduced to renowned designers and companies such as Bubblegum Educational Design (a company that has honored me with a position as Art Director for the last 4 years).
Administration is a merging part of any Managing position, thus I’m able to adhere to requested admin tasks and regulate HR procedures. Upon request I’m willing to further my studies to suite the companies expectations and meet standards so as to acquire a position within any company willing to grant me the opportunity to prosper. I would like to personally meet you and your team. Note that proof of certificates and documentations is available on request. I have an eight-year track record of office management and six year experience in the Creative Industry.
You will benefit from my following key strengths:
• I have more than twelve years computer expertise in all MS Office programs.
• I have eight years experience in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, After Effects and suitable knowledge in Flash. Four years experience as an Art Director for Bubblegum and two years experience in a Managing role.
• PHP knowledge with advanced design knowledge both print and onscreen.
• Able to complete a spectrum of administrative duties; including executive support, office management, billing/invoicing, customer care, account management, database administration, document preparation, travel/meeting coordination and project/program support.
• I’m able to manage multiple high-priority assignments and develop solutions to challenging business problems within deadline restraints.
• My presentation skills are outstanding as this was an intricate part of my daily tasks.
• I always adhere to company etiquette and respect company policy at all times.
I look forward to your response.
