Heather Schlitt

Graphic Designer
   United States
  |   Azusa, CA

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

As a graphic designer, I believe in expression, symbols, and stories. Design void of any of these things is not doing its job of communicating ideas. I believe in aesthetically pleasing design; patterns, color, and typography used to bring life to a concept. In my designs, I strive to implore both structure and minimalism, as well as a fluidity that comes with nature. Combined with inspiration from various movements in Art History, my designs tend to utilize shapes and color as my predominant features and strive to cleanly and simply convey...

Service Description

I pride myself in my desire to learn and to continue to cultivate this passion that I possess for communicating visually. Working in the field has allowed me to develop many other skills pertaining to the design field, such as problem solving skills, writing skills, software skills, being keenly aware of deadlines, and becoming more of a self-starter. It has also given me the opportunity to join professional divisions like the AIGA, and Communication Arts. I pride myself on my work ethic and impeccable presentation.
I have interned with an Advertising Agency, giving me much experience with print design and other mediums utilized by the advertising world. I had experience archiving, working on projects that need to be completed, fixing software, printing, sending jobs to the CEO or sending them to the printer. I have also had experience as a graphic design intern for the Alumni Office at my university. Much of this work was very similar to that of a production artist, which was what I was at my internship with the Ad Agency.
I have also had extensive experience doing freelance design work for various topics and issues such as recital posters for musicians, slides for church promotions, and non-profit organizations. I was also an Editor-in-Chief for my yearbook in high school, which means that I had a hand in the design of the book (the layouts, cover, and other aspects) as well as the business aspects of running this small organization. I have extensive experience in the...
