However, I am often required to work across different areas of pre-press including retouching, page layouts and other marketing material. I am fortunate to have experienced many avenues of media and am aware of the different print processed involved and the limitations for each. I am also understanding of the work of a photography studio, the different pre-press departments and have a good knowledge when it comes to print capabilities.
I have always had a passion for creativity and thoroughly enjoy the opportunities to advise my colleagues when questioned about particular layout issues. I enjoy the responsibility of understanding the technical aspects of print and ensuring the clients brief is understood and their needs are met. I have a good level of Mac literacy and am often involved in day-to-day problem solving.
I appreciate the importance of working within a team, I have a good sense of humour and remain calm throughout pressured times which reflects strongly to everyone working alongside me. If a problem arises, I am happy to take control of the situations with a calm, methodical approach. I am experienced working with Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Microsoft and Quark.
Overall I believe I am respected as a good all rounder, I am hard working, honest and dedicated to producing accurate, print ready artwork.
