As Art Director and Designer I have the pleasure of overseeing my two favorite aspects of design- the big picture and the smallest details. I have been a part of design firms and led teams of writers, photographers and graphic designers to create successful and dynamic marketing pieces. From 200-page mega catalogs for Globe International to the sweet and beautiful designs for Fleurs I have managed projects both large and small- pulling them all together on time and on budget.
