A bright visual problem-solver with professional experience using InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat Professional and PowerPoint to create advert, flyer and poster artwork and to retouch images. An approachable team-player with experience liaising with printers, internal departments and clients, I am equally comfortable working on my own initiative or as part of a team.
Area Covered: London and South East
Work Experience Summary: I have been working as a presentation specialist within corporate, advertising and media agencies since 2001 and I am interested in working on presentations, DTP or project management placements both in corporate, media or creative agencies. I would be available from one day to more long term assignments and I am also available for evening and weekend work.
I have gained extensive experience working within presentations and new business departments, working on extensive pitches, producing presentations and pitch documentation as well as the day to day presentation needs of an agency. As project manager on such pitches I took a pivotal role in idea generation, developing pitch documents and brochures, mail outs, PowerPoint templates, any graphic design, booking external illustrators, photographers, film makers and editors, room dressing, mock ups, artwork, art buying and print management.
I gained hands on experience in all of these areas complied with project management skills, budget control and working to strict deadlines. I thrived in this demanding role and being part of a busy department and team and being able to add a creative edge and consultancy to the work being produced.
Over the last six years working within a design department alongside a new business department I have developed a good grasp of the nature of pitches, working to tight deadlines and the need to be able to communicate well across all departments. I am also very good at staying calm under pressure and problem solving.
