Illustrator is my go to application for all things vector. I do a lot of page layout work in Illustrator (brochures, postcards, advertising) and also use it for many designs requiring spot color separation (screen-printing). The addition of multi-page spreads in CS5/CS6 has turned Illustrator into a tool that I use almost daily.
I rely on InDesign for multi-page spreads, including, but not limited to brochures, advertising, and catalog layout.
I use Dreamweaver for both it's code and design views. Although I do write and troubleshoot my own HTML most of the time, Dreamweaver helps keep everything organized and is easy to use. I have worked in Dreamweaver for over 10 years.
Although I don't consider myself a Flash expert, I am capable of basic animations when requested in Flash instead of HTML5. I have been designing web and exe animations since Flash's predecessor, Macromedia Director (1997).
HTML & CSS are ever evolving coding languages so I keep up with the latest web developing trends, CSS, HTML5 and browser updates. I can handcode and troubleshoot browser support issues. My experience includes static HTML websites as well as Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal.
I have experience using all Microsoft Office applications and have designed creative PowerPoint presentations. Letterhead designs I have designed in Adobe Illustrator have been translated over to Word so clients can use the digital versions easily in a format they are comfortable with.
I design and develop on both a PC and a MAC. I am very knowledgeable in troubleshooting issues on both platforms.
Studied all aspects of design and development including multimedia design, advertising design, branding, copywriting, exhibition design, illustration, information design, packaging and web design.
