Junior Art Director
I started at HAVAS as a creative intern and was then hired as a freelance Junior Art Director to focus solely on Claire's.

Claire's: I designed all of the weekly Emails and Home Page features for USA, CA and EU. The client required very quick turn around times and a fresh perspective on design.

Sonic: I designed promotional point of purchase visuals which were been displayed nationally at their drive ins.

On both accounts I worked very closely with the creative and account teams, troubleshooting and adapting to the client's every need.
