PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE


Print Production Artist, Character, San Francisco, CA. October 2009 to November 2009
Working on contract for a design agency, I produced two holiday catalogs for a major retailer. I created layouts from design specifications, then imported, sized, and cropped FPO images as provided. I imported content from client-provided spreadsheets, then formatted the text and did minor editing and major copyfitting. This project required that I produce several rounds of galleys and implement many client changes, then create clean, accurate mechanicals and perform preflight checks and troubleshooting. I also attended two multi-day press checks.

Print projects included a bi-monthly magazine, marketing brochures and other collateral, conference proceedings books, conference guides, and event signage. My web production duties included creating new pages, creating and optimizing graphics and images, and updating the HTML code of the entire site and implementing CSS. I trained and supervised one production assistant.
