Print Production and Graphic Design
About halfway through college, I realized I needed to compliment my growing television experience with knowledge of the print industry in order to become a better writer and also have the opportunity to manage different types of media projects. So, I began a minimum wage job at my hometown newspaper during my summer break, starting out as a maintenance kid, and eventually working my way up to publishing special edition projects within two years. Since then, I have been working in print and graphic design in some way, shape or form.

I enjoy print and graphic design as I do television or interactive media. For over a decade, the University of Minnesota, Morris, did not employ a print designer on its staff. Since my employment at UMM, our department, Instructional and Media Technologies, had been the only place for high quality design work. Prior to my arrival at UMM, we didn't have a designer at all.

At UMM, our clients include a mixture of academic departments, Cougar athletics, continuing education, as well as working with individual faculty with their academic of research projects. Due to our geographic location, UMM provides design service to local and regional non-profit and external for-profit organizations as well as corporations and business. Typical projects range from newsletters, large format display design to brochures and DVD albums.

Taking full advantage of Adobe's Creative Suite – Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign – the majority of my projects center around auxiliary components to our television and video projects produced at Instructional and Media Technologies.
