As a recent college graduate, I found ways to enhance my graphic design skills throughout my college career. The opportunity that has taught me the most has been working as a Social Media Marketing Intern for Free Flight, a local bicycle and ski shop. My position has introduced me to creating engaging content for social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram as well as the analytics behind each post. I've learned how to stay organized and balance multiple projects at one time due to managing different social media accounts, website content, and print content needed in the store. I also worked at The Buzz Creative Company and learned how to work with all types of brand guidelines and collateral for different casino properties. I gained experience working closely with branding and marketing strategies while still providing quality designs. Finally, I worked on the Belltower Student Publication during my time at the University of Dubuque. I became the Head Layout Editor which helped me learn the importance of producing quality work on a deadline and working with a team with both designers and writers. Through these different positions and various others, I’ve learned how to tell a story on behalf of my clients.
