Creative Director/Graphic Designer / Letterer / Social Media Manager
I oversaw the entire design process for graphic novels slated for design and publication, including book design, advertising and press material, and lettering. Included in my duties was managing both the Sekwana Comics website and various social media pages, including facebook, twitter, tumblr.com, instagram, youtube, google+, and pinterest. Also, I managed two graphic design interns, who helped with lettering and general graphic design.

After I graduated, Marie, the owner and COO of Redhype, hired me on part time as a graphic designer. During these few months I worked for Redhype, I handled accounts such as Gracemats, Davis Lar, and Wink. For Gracemats, I created an extensive Pinterest presence that was integrated into their facebook page and promoted the company's family-oriented, Christian identity.

Intern
My second internship at Redhype was done as a class fulfillment for my degree at North Greenville University. I was allowed to explore branding different organizations and creating final promotional material that was printed. As part of my internship, I created the original logo for Poppington's Popcorn, a thriving local popcorn shop in downtown Greenville and closely worked with the owner to create the best branding and promotional material for her shop.

Intern
My first internship at Redhype was self-initiated outside of my university's requirements as an experience to both learn about the advertising industry and develop as a graphic designer. While at Redhype, I created promotional material for the company and worked with Marie Dunn-Blough, owner and COO of Redhype, on various design projects.

Visual Arts Editor, Managing Editor, Staff Writer
I started out as a staff writer and was soon promoted to assistant visual arts editor, then the next semester to visual arts editor. I also became the managing editor as part of my duties as the visual arts editor and managed six other editors as well as two graphic designers. When I was promoted to visual arts editor, I completely redesigned the newspaper from tabloid layout to broadside layout and created a visual guide for the editors to follow. I worked closely with the editor in chief and created most of the advertisements, illustrations, and graphics for The Skyliner.
