Experience

Art Director, PracticeLink
July 2015–Present
While continuing to perform almost all of the design tasks from my previous role, I now also design and produce PracticeLink Magazine (80+ pages quarterly) and additional marketing collateral (e.g. case studies, infographics, vendor kits). I have built and designed spreadsheets for internal, cross-departmental processes and metrics. I manage a production coordinator. I work with the CIO to design our web properties. I source and art direct contract illustrators and contract videographers.

Significant accomplishments:

Graphic Designer & Production Coordinator, PracticeLink
June 2014–July 2015
I designed and produced marketing pieces, including the quarterly PracticeLink inTouch Newsletter, brand identity assets, trade show booths, sales collateral, web graphics, presentations, and swag. I sourced and directed contract photographers for the quarterly magazine. I analyzed our magazine distribution data to build reports for clients. 

Significant accomplishments:

  • I improved the appearance and consistency of our art across the board.
  • I redesigned the PracticeLink inTouch Newsletter.
  • I created a logic process for building and filtering our magazine distribution list (100,000+ addresses) from dozens of source lists.
  • I greatly sped up the process of coordinating our magazine advertisers’ art.
  • I overhauled our team’s production calendar and implemented a more deadline-conscious workflow across the department.
