Resume:

Hi! I’m Scott. I’m a *d/*d artist and graphic designer looking to help small businesses tell their story and keep more established companies relevant and engaging.

Whether it’s refreshing my social media feeds, researching which products to purchase, or simply walking around the city…I’m hyper-aware of the current trends being implemented in the fields of advertising and design. I’m always interested in the factors behind successful marketing campaigns, and I’m even more focused on understanding the reasons why other campaigns have failed in the past (and what could have been done differently).

Having worked with soccer clubs, tech start-up firms, and large format printing companies, I’ve acquired a diverse set of skills to bring along with me into this new role. I enjoy being able to collaborate with others on larger projects, and I’m certainly comfortable with communicating my ideas to clients and co-workers both in-person or in writing. During my time at Galaxy Displays, the company actually debuted a “rush design services” option for clients making purchases online…so I certainly know a thing or two about meeting near-impossible deadlines!

Many of my previous roles have offered quite a bit of creative freedom, and I’ve learned how to thrive in more undefined (and even somewhat chaotic) roles. In the past, I’ve played a part in designing websites, logos, training materials, promotional videos, and more. I’m incredibly mindful of the importance of brand guidelines, and I’m comfortable working with as much or as little direction as a client or company chooses to give me. My portfolio can be found at www.scottbalogh.com and I look forward to speaking with you more about what I can bring to the team!
