MARKETING

In the in-house corporate marketing role at Contractors Wardrobe manufacturers, I worked with the sales team to launch CW Select, an exciting new line of glass shower enclosures in hundreds of new retail stores nationwide.

Collaborating with engineering, CAD and 3D renderers was a daily inspiration as I pulled together new product illustrations, diagrams, packaging labels and mock-ups of POP displays. In addition to that, brainstorming names for each model involved my research of railroad line names and descriptors indicating solid construction, smooth track movement and soft closure:  Zephyr, Coast, and Surfliner!

Brainstorming with the VP of Sales, I presented ways to combine the legacy logo design with a new tagline and a modern medallion and presented it to the executive team, mocking up a variety of identity updates including vehicle wraps, banners and new customer catalog ideas.

I created and updated all the company marketing collateral including B2B price books, spec sheets, POP brochures, instructions, spec sheets and more.

ADVERTISING

I was a 13-year producer of monthly magazines for City Publishing Company’s quality direct mail advertising, using InDesign to lay out pages and prep files for press production and mass mailing to 120,000 LA area homes. I designed local ads for real estate, restaurants, home improvement, retail and many more types of businesses as well as re-imagining their classic cover design in 2015:

As a freelance graphic artist working from a home studio, I’ve created logo identities, event publicity campaigns, directories, forms and brochures for my clients:

 

Small businesses and non profits are my specialty.
