I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design and headed to New York. I worked in the advertising department for Barneys New York and it was a fantastic whirlwind. At Barneys I learned how the creative process works, how to organize creative projects, how to produce photoshoots, social media beginnings and design for e-commerce.
Exactly 2 years later, I met my fiancé and relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina. I was able to work with the Carolina Ballet. The arts have always been significant in my life, so this was a great way to transition. As an art department of one, I created integrated campaigns for 8 shows, design for online ticket sales, website updates for the news-like content, and spread the word via social media.
To get back into retail, I became bevello's first creative hire and started working on visuals to support the young company's 18 stores. I touched everything from visual display to email campaigns, and social media. I picked up a camera and hired my friends to model. Then I hired a graphic designer and interns. I was able to spearhead a website redesign and relaunch campaign, working alongside developers at Everest Agency.
I left bevello in March 2013 to work on small projects: email marketing campaigns and photoshoots. I'm currently having fun and looking to fit into a creative team that has big ideas.
