Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Illustrator

I have over 25 years of experience using Adobe Illustrator to create all manner of print materials and vector artwork - logo development, iconography, font manipulation and recreation of hand-rendered art as well as creating and converting files to work in other desktop applications.


Adobe InDesign

I used InDesign to create anything print, from postcards to catalogs to signage to packaging while I was the Senior Art Director at an agency. Over time, as InDesign became more robust, I began using its added features more and more for more complex projects where other applications were traditionally used.


Desktop Publishing

As a design, graphic artist and art director, I have experience creating everything from postcards to mood boards to catalogs to packaging. Most of the projects that I designed were created with InDesign, using Illustrator and Photoshop to create the imagery.


Graphic Design

As a Senior Art Director on the Zales Account Team, I designed, directed and produced all types of print collateral, from postcards to catalogs to packaging. We created and produced 5-6 catalogs each year for a total of approximately 105 catalogs over 17 years plus all of the support collateral - postcards, signage, packaging, etc. Prior to my agency experience, I was working as the Senior Art Director for Zale Corporation/Diamond Park Division for 10 years. I was responsible for the design and development of all print collateral to promote Zales jewelry in 15 national store chains.
