MARKETING PRINT DESIGN
When the marketing lead at Teachers On Call contacted me, he was determined to give this light hearted and child focused brand a complete make-over. When they came to me their marketing pieces were text/information heavy and lacked the proper visual flow to keep viewers attention. We used various versions of the same dog throughout a 12 month postcard mailing campaign to attract the light hearted and caring individuals they wanted to be part of the TOC team. This campaign was a complete success!
SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT
I am well seasoned in all areas of social media graphics, content and management. I have grown several social media channels of my own over the years as well as for a handful of clients. I am most familiar with Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and WordPress blogs.
I am also very familiar with creating and monitoring Facebook Ad Campaigns.
Logo designs are one of my most popular requests from my clients. I use Adobe Illustrator for design logos because I think it's important to create a vector logo that is able to be scaled to any size and edited for any platform.
Photo editing is my 2nd favorite and 2nd strongest area of design. It falls right under print design. I have learned all the Photoshop and Lightroom tricks over the years as a professional portrait and wedding photographer. I have "enhanced" a lot of images for my employers and clients. I love hearing them say "How on earth did you do that?!" Ha! I love having magical photo powers!
This is also why I never "believe" any photos that I see online because I know how easy it is to manipulate what our eyes can see.
I have owned and operated my own portrait and wedding photography business for the past 17 years. I have never had any formal photography training, it's just always been a natural talent of mine. I really enjoy getting to capture everyone's unique stories through my lens. I have used both Nikon and Cannon digital SLR cameras and I have to say that my Nikon D750 with my 50mm lens is by far my best performer.
