JAK Graphic Design
I wore many hats at my first agency gig. I managed all aspects of marketing programs from beginning to end: creative kick-off, writing + editing, image search, client liaison, the approval process and release to printer. Brands ranged from quick service restaurants to high-end resorts and luxury travel brands. Traveled to New York client meetings to present concepts to clients.
