GRAPHIC DESIGN


I have worked professionally in graphic design on all levels. I have worked in both retail and office environments. I have handled projects from conception to completion. Projects that I have been the lead designer on have garnered industry awards, such as the Erik Hoffer award and the IPPY (Independent Publishers) Award.
