In 2007 I landed a junior designer position at SWJ (The Studios of Wendy J.) where I produced brand packages, flash games/websites, marketing campaigns, electronic and mixed medium illustrations, packaging, print materials and websites. In 2009 I took on a lead designer role at Blizzard Interactive and was assigned the task of creating all marketing materials for fifty+ websites and five mobile platforms that are based in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and The United States. Following these assignments I reflected on the designs & user interfaces with web analytics to improve user interaction and conversion funnels.
I also gained experience in producing eye catching sales collateral for in-house promotions and social media marketing that included Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and Pinterest.
Working with a medium sized team helped to broaden my management skills, I learned how to bring out the best of their individual strengths and help us grow in areas we were less confident in. Collaboratively we simultaneously achieved tight deadlines for multiple projects whilst maintaining a quick turnaround on daily jobs.
Over the last two years, web design has become a staple diet for me, ranging from redesign to full online campaigns. I am experienced and skilled in HTML/CSS, Flash animation/ActionScript 2.0, WordPress, ClickTale Analytics and Google Analytics.
I am a talented professional designer with creative flair who can work within a brand standard across multiple media channels and thrives in a positive team atmosphere.
