Let’s talk about how my 25+ years of experience, and boundless creativity can be working for you. Have I mentioned my sense of humour?
My Uncle Paul was my inspiration to become a graphic designer. He was a commercial artist at the Ottawa Citizen, and I remember being enthralled by every little nugget of information he imparted to me. Of all those nuggets, I remember this one most of all: you continue to learn every day, and if you don’t, you might as well just give up. Or something to that effect! I think his point was that life is all about learning new things, and with respect to design, it’s what I’ve done for the past 25+ years.
After studying Advertising-Creative in college, I joined my father in starting our family’s printing company as their graphic designer. Since that time, I’ve had many opportunities to expand my skill set. My career path has taken me through sales, design and page layout for newspapers, production management for a boutique advertising and design company, not to mention a stint on Parliament Hill and at Microsoft as an executive assistant, where I again learned some pretty valuable transferable skills.
It’s this diversity of skills and experience that gives me the ability to see your project through from the spark of an idea to the realization of your vision.
