A BIT OF BACKGROUND:
My first design job was at Dark Horse Comics in Portland, Oregon where for three years I worked on comic books, graphic novels, product packaging, ads, sell sheets and catalogs. One of my favorite projects was a line of merchandise based on Tim Burton’s book of poetry, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories. With guidance from art director Mark Cox, I not only designed the logo and packaging, I also designed some of the products including t-shirts, stickers, a lunchbox and notecards.
I later moved to San Francisco for a change of pace, and I was hired as marketing designer at Klutz (books and activity kits for kids). I worked on both retail and wholesale product catalogs as well as book displays, event kits, trade show graphics, banner ads, and graphics for their retail website and email campaigns.
