Resume:

Natalie A. Quinn

Objective

My objective in searching for employment is to find a company that can utilize my current skill set and challenge me on a daily basis to expand and add to them. The more elaborate the problem the more I want to solve it creatively. I will always say that if art is in the eye of the beholder, design is in the eye of the client. I have a very diverse background that ranges from printing and binding to prepress work to design of anything to minor animation work. The best job for me is one that challenges me to be the best, that drives me to keep learning and expanding and that recognizes that determination.
