I have a master's degree in graphic design, and plenty of experience in product design and development, branding and page layout. I've worked with many entertainment licensed brands, as well as designed and wrote a 100 page book.
Product design and development - Currently working at a company which develops beverage ware, impulse and home decor items. Working with many different licenses. Color theory, brand knowledge, trends, and attention to detail are a must. Also worked a lot with packaging design for mentioned licensed, and also generic products.
Multi page layout/page layout - Worked on a book over 100 pages long for my master's thesis project. Used a lot of hand done art (drawing text, and using different elements to create a layout).
Branding - My book focused around branding. I have developed strong brands for different independent musicians based around the sound of their music and differentiating them from other musicians in the same category.
Advertising - A lot of my education focused on advertising and concept development. I used a lot of unique ideas which focused around imagery and symbolism to portray a message.
Website design - Worked as an intern at a major Cleveland web design company. I was required to teach myself HTML and CSS.
