Job Title: Studio Artist for Product Development
Description: Dec. 2009-July2010
Home & Lifestyle Artist
Sarasota, Florida USA
My main objective was creating seasonal items to be sold in Beall"s department stores. Bealls specialize in uniquely Florida-friendly merchandise. My assignment fell under product development for Home. I was engaged in designing textiles, resin and earthenware products. The feedback I received for the designs were outstanding. The buyers and the even president of Bealls, was excited with the Christmas 2010 line I helped to develop. During this process, I needed to follow and maintain color stories for each program and ensure the highest brand standards. I gained experience working with brand managers and buyers during artwork revisions. I would be called upon to design items for ladies and children"s fashions. A large part of my experience encompassed packaging design for our private brands. It was my task to work with photographers and food stylists during photo shoots, giving creative direction. I left Beall"s to return to the UK and reside, but happily this position prepared me to work in product development and home fashion design. In April, I received the honour of support staff of the month.
Job Title: Illustrator & Jr.Designer
Company: ESPN/ BASS
Description: My role was in the publication department which produces several magazine titles monthly, along with special annual publications. B.A.S.S. was the main company for ESPN"s outdoors programming and marketing platform. I was first hired under the title Illustrator, later to be promoted to Jr. Designer in 2005. While with ESPN, I applied myself with editors, art directors and publishing designers. I enjoyed this position because I was often able to contribute in creative meetings, knowing many of my design ideas were often used. Being with ESPN, and Disney had many advantages. I was often exposed to workshops with art directors and editors that had many years of experience which I could gain vital information from. My main contribution was designing departmental and features pages for the magazines.
I was involved with magazine re-designs for all of our titles. My duties also included designing adds, photo database organization and designing web page content. My favorite project was concepting and illustrating a children"s conservation activity book. It was big hit with our younger audience, as well our sponsors. Over the years, I served with the events planning committee to promote corporate functions. The committee was always advantageous because it help to build relationships with people outside of my department. My time at B.A.S.S. was a remarkable experience and often felt like a family, even to this day I am proud I was part of such a well respected company.
