Experience


Columbine Label Company

Prepress + Design
March 2015 - Present

In a small company you wear many hats. Art, file management, social media coordinator, color management, technology advisor, IT and prepress are some I wear daily. You learn quickly when you have to because clients don’t wait and they don’t care if you’re new. Repeatable, consistent color are imperative. With many small runs for the entrepreneurial customer, clients need design advice and execution done quickly and intelligently.

Birth - Present

I’ve been making beautiful art since I was born. At least that is what my mother always tells me. As for a more “professional” sense, I have been doing freelance since back in 2010. I have dabbled in traditional print collateral, brand identity, wedding invites, website design and production to name a few areas. Brand5280, 35Millermeter and Mr. & Mrs Maier are a handful of happy clients.

Design and Production Intern
June 2014 - August 2014

Fast paced, multiple projects, diverse client base and in-house design are all on the daily docket. Efficiencies in process are essential to being a positive part of the team, while quickly learning how to integrate with the current systems in place makes me a viable asset to the team. A small group of designers means having a group of people with a strong work ethic and the ability to adjust to a constantly changing work environment. The takeaway from working with such a high quality bunch, that enjoys their job and are willing to share all that they know is a recipe for success.
