Work with a client who requires promotional graphics and advertisements for their business.
Have 2 loyal dance studios that require spring recital programs and promotional/marketing materials throughout the year.
On a continual project with a fashion designer and creating her catalog.
This experience is related to her book cover projects.
Her experience in advertisement includes magazine ads, promotional and marketing, direct mail, social media, banners, etc
In a little over 3 years, she has designed over 100 book covers. Some have been bidding jobs, contests, pre-made covers, and direct hire projects.
Brochures encompass design of booklets, programs, and interior formatting of magazines and books.
She has only done a handful of websites, as website design is more time consuming than book covers and more technical, which she doesn't have enough experience to feel comfortable doing extensive website design projects. She will take on simple, low key, website design projects she feels she can handle.
