I am the former creative director of Hour Detroit magazine, an oversized, glossy, general interest publication based in Detroit, Michigan. I have worked as an editorial designer/art director for more than 12 years and as a freelance designer for marketing and ad agencies for several years. My print/editorial duties have included designing templates and style sheets, prototypes, and redesigns; art budgeting; photo assignment; photo editing and/or researching and purchasing stock photos; retouching; logo development; ad creation; photo shoot art direction; page layout; text formatting; and production as well as printer pricing and managing. As a freelance designer, I work with art directors, editors, or directly with clients to design and prep materials such as print ads, collateral, posters, environmental graphics, flyers, catalogs, media kits, and postcards. I also plan, design, and sometimes implement web sites using HTML and CSS. I contribute typographic illustration to various magazines. Read Less
