I've worked with book publishers, magazines, and entire programs of publications, creating multi page pieces that conform to publishing standards. I can create templates with style sheets for use by in-house departments. I not only know the software to create publications. I know proper formatting, and have a love of proper typography.

Each project teaches you skills in Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator.
