Support the marketing department and other functions in the company with all graphic design needs. Supervise external designers as needed. Below are 3 highlights from my last 12 months with Accedian:
Played a major part in the company’s rebranding, both as a collaborator (together with external agency) in the overall design process and as a contributor in the production part of the heavy lift of moving over collateral to the new brand.
Was part of improving the yearly global sales conference experience. Produced cohesive visual material to create a professional look for the whole event, including Master PPT, informational posters, name badges, web banners, stickers, etc.
Took over as Lead Designer for the new company website when external agency did not fulfill the requirements. Designed page layout, web banners, diagrams and graphics.
