Seasoned creative professional (over 10 years of experience) with print, identity, web and interactive design experience seeks full time employment with agency or design studio. Client-facing/consulting design position preferred.

About me:
I have a true passion for branding and design, and firmly believe in creating beautiful, usable concepts. My strengths are: typography and layout, attention to detail, constant reviewing and critiquing; time management, organization, and of course creativity.

I'm a whiz with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and ImageReady, and also have experience using Flash, Fireworks, and Quark Express. I know how to hand code HTML, have knowledge of Javascript and Action Scripting, but I prefer to leave those actual duties to professional programmers.

I am a flexible designer and can design anything from sophisticated, cutting-edge websites to strongly branded corporate communications and identities.

I have an eye for creating e-commerce websites that sell, and can help clients merchandize. I know how search engine optimization works, and strive to balance form and function.

I am looking for a client-side position at an agency or design studio in San Francisco, but would also be willing to commute a bit for the right position.
