The Jones Store/Mercantile Corporation
Graphic Artist
1995 - 1996
As a designer in the marketing department for two retail department store chains, The Jones Store Co. and Joslins, I designed B/W and 4 color retail ads for newspapers and magazines, in-store marketing materials (event announcements, coupons, hosiery cards, etc...), their corporate newsletter and direct mail pieces. I directed fashion and product photo shoots and was responsible for the design and production of all my projects. I digitally manipulated photos in Photoshop using curves, filters and photo tools to improve output quality, COB’d photos and cloned backgrounds. This was a high volume, fast paced, deadline oriented environment.
