I possess a widely varied background, positioning me for an equally wide array of jobs. I have worked as a high level creative in some form for many well-known companies. I am experienced. That experience has taught me how to run an Art Department. It taught me how to master all the appropriate graphic software. It taught me to stay on top of trends - but not become a slave to them. And probably above all else, it taught me that a happy Art Department is a productive Art Department. In my years of experience I’ve designed and directed hundreds of logos, print ads, trade show graphics, catalogs, tee shirts, web banners, packaging, and POP. I have shot and directed many photo and video shoots. I’ve done animation, I’m an award-winning designer, I’m a painter and illustrator of some note, and I’m an 8-time published author. I thrive under deadlines. I am a strong leader and a team player, I don’t mind long hours, because when you love what you do for a living, it’s not work.

I know I can do the job. I hope to hear from you. Thank you. Joe - 714-***-****
