Evie Davis

Art Director / Designer

Las Vegas, NV, USA
Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

In a nutshell: Comes with a variety of interests and skillsets, strong problem solving skills, quirky sense of humor, and a penchant for movie quotes. Complete with a variety of experience and knowledge in areas from hospitality and gaming to retail, sales and broadcasting.

The fast paced environment of Casino, Hospitality and Broadcasting has taught me to work quickly and efficiently under pressure and extreme time constraints. Working with a variety of clients and budgets, I'm experienced in providing high end to cost effective collateral, direct mail, invitations and signage.
