Freelance Graphic Design & Illustration
From in-house to freelance graphic design (and back again)
Aramark (2004 – 2007)
My first professional job right out of school and being green is putting it lightly! Being a graphic designer for a large Fortune 500 company would prove to be a great experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better department as a 21 year old. Corporate Communications did some awesome things during this time.
Fox Chase Cancer Center (2007 – 2014)
After Aramark I accepted a position with Fox Chase Cancer Center. I worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in the Creative Services Department. And once again amazing colleagues taught me so much during his time. At Fox Chase we worked on big projects and small ones, even winning some awards along the way.
Aquatrols (2015 – Present)
While enjoying some success as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, I stumbled across a unique posting for a full-time position. I felt like we had an amazing interview and was happy when I was asked to join Aquatrols to help with rebranding efforts as Aquatrols grows and expands into emerging markets.
Between my time at Fox Chase Cancer Center and Aquatrols, I started 4545 Creative and spent a year working for myself and figuring out my next move. At 4545 I took on many freelance graphic design and illustration jobs that paid the bills, all the while spending my free-time outlining a side project that that I hope to complete in 2017. Here are some of the projects that I was excited about during my year of freelancing.
