Graphic Designer II
01/2017 - 05/2019
In the role of Graphic Designer II, I pull cases from our Salesforce queue to complete. They list the number as well as the type of graphics that have been requested by our clients. From there, I create the desired graphics in InDesign using scripts and accompanying programs such as Wordsflow and Webdam. Once the graphics have been created for either the clients' websites or their advertising on other websites, the images are exported and sent to the coordinator for client approval. Most cases I work are for new graphics requests, some are for re-works such as client revisions or compliance updates, and some cases are updates to past creatives from earlier months. I also work on what we call our Themes Project, where we spend a longer period creating designs that can be used as more of a template by other designers on the team. Each themes project lasts roughly two weeks and then is presented to the dealerships for choosing at the start of each month. Each theme contains a full suite of assets, including: slides, banners, specials, display ads, etc. I have also worked on National Initiatives with Lincoln for their 2018 Wish List campaign. During Q4 of 2018, I recieved the "Be the Energy" award for being a positive influence in the workspace and for my involvement in inner-office organizations.
