Past Jobs and Internships
Business Start-up Guide
As a design and marketing intern, one of my large scale projects was formatting, editing, and designing a Business Start-up Guide for the Economic Development Director to hand out to potential business owners in town. All the information was given to me in Microsoft Word and various PDF's of data over the years.
I took the information and utilized Adobe InDesign to create varying paragraph styles for the whole document. I then was able to add photos, design layouts, and create a style guide for future documents. All of the charts, data tables, graphics, and icons were also designed and created by me, using Adobe Illustrator and InDesign.
Paso Robles Chamber
The second book I worked on was the Paso Robles Economic Profile, created to give statistics on the city's quality of life, population, housing, etc. This document was the most important document I worked on for the Chamber because it showcased all the work and research my boss had done. Much like the Business Start-up Guide, I used Adobe InDesign for the formatting and Illustrator for the creation of graphics, icons,charts, and tables.
The document was showcased at the Chamber's annual Business Leader Summit, having been given to all of the top leaders in the community. I also was given the opportunity to print and bind them with my team at University Graphic Systems. The Chamber and I were very proud of the whole document.
Paso Robles Chamber
Business Walk Mailer
One of my last design projects for the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce was to create a mailer type postcard for the annual Business Walk. The Business Walk gathered data from the town's businesses that was crucial to the economic development department of the Chamber. My boss really appreciated options when it came to first rounds of design, so I was able to create six options to work from. It was unanimous that the people in the office liked the hexagonal flyer version. I created several versions, and we were able to create the final version (first photo), along with the results sheet (second photo), and website photo (third photo). The final version included the famous Acorn Building that was very significant in Paso Robles.
