I am a creative, energetic and versatile designer who executes every project with attention to detail and a keen awareness of deadlines. I believe team work, professionalism and organization are important aspects of every job where by fulfilling the needs of coworkers, managers and clients.
I am seeking a position as an assistant graphic designer. I am reentering the graphic design field and am proficient in the latest additions of the Adobe Creative Suite. I am a hands-on and results oriented designer. I have a diverse background in both conceptual ideation and production of layouts, signage and illustration. My enclosed resume details the specifics of my experience and education.
I have many years of experience conceptualizing and producing graphics, collateral and signage. I worked as a sign painter, graphic designer and muralist for Trader Joe’s supermarkets. Meeting tight deadlines while executing clever graphics and signage was the primary focus of my daily responsibilities. I created chalkboards, posters and shelf signs using traditional production methods such as markers, chalk and acrylic paint.
Besides the hands-on design, I have updated my skills in the Adobe Creative Suite software by attending classes at DeAnza College, Foothill College and San Jose City College. Developing creative solutions to both illustration and design problems is my strength.
Considering my past experience and educational qualifications, I am confident I can contribute to any company's design team.
