Passionate Art Director with more than 20 years of creative direction & implementation experience, and 12 years of successfully leading a team of designers, freelancers, and vendors in the art of problem-solving and collaboration. Continuously demonstrate strong leadership skills in a creative, cross- functional, and multidisciplinary environment, providing innovation and solutions for print, digital, user interface (UI), user experience (UX), and prototypes.
As an experienced Senior Designer, I bring 20 years of passion for design and working within a small team to achieve goals together. In my most recent role as Art Director for LightStream, a national online consumer lending service, I have had the privilege of being the point person for drafting, designing, strategizing, and executing visual solutions companywide. In this position, I grew from a designer to a manager and was able to execute visual solutions for all internal and external publications for a wide range of projects, as well as significantly innovate and improve project management systems in the process. This opportunity has provided me the necessary experience to know how to effectively lead a team while simultaneously guiding the artistic direction of a project.
