STORIFY STUDIO

Creative Director

Conceive and implement visual marketing programs that range from print media to digital presentations.

 

I originated the company’s own brand and image, as well as served clients in the same capacity. All designs on storifystudio.com are by me.

 

While meeting fast-paced ‘startup’ deadlines, I was responsible for developing engaging collateral for our clients that tells a story and elicits an emotional response from viewers. Also responsible for working closely with the design, graphic arts and marketing personnel to deliver content that exceeds the expectations of our clients.

  • Initiate and design complex and simple marketing plans based on client specifications
     

  • Ensure that each project has the specific financial and personnel resources it requires to be successful
     

  • Attend sales presentations to help clients understand the creative angle of each marketing program
     

  • Work with the executive team to implement marketing materials for the firm to help increase the firm's exposure
     

  • Collaborate with design personnel to ensure that all creative ideas are presented properly

2006 - forever
