At this fast paced firm, multi-tasking, organization and quick turnaround of successful design was a must. My organizational skills and attention to detail were highly valued when designing complex projects such as maintaining brand standards for Fortune 1000 companies, developing trade show concepts and campaigns, and creating promotional materials for national associations and high-powered law firms.
