Art Director/ Lead Designer
As the art director/ lead designer for Pulse magazine I had to work very quickly to meet hard deadlines. I organized and directed other designers that contributed to the magazine.

With my design abilities and art direction I was able to increase viewership for the publication. For example, the March issue of Pulse for 2011 received 363 views. Whereas, the March 2012 issue (linked above) received 1774 views (and counting). Here is a link to the March 2012 issue of Pulse Magazine:
