GRAPHIC DESIGNER • WEB CONTENT MANAGER
Lead Generation • Client Communication • Marketing
As a Web Content Manager, with a background in graphic design, I establish distinct branding for small businesses via print, web, and social media design. Creating designs and maintaining content unique to the customer’s business needs, allows me to synchronize their online branding, and drive visitors to their website, increasing sales leads by over 220%. With over 18 years of experience in the industry, 16 of those years were spent with one company; Hibü, until I was laid off in 2018. My success at Hibü led to four internal promotions, providing me with extensive industry knowledge in Design, Marketing, and Web Content Management, enabling me to smoothly translate my client’s goals and ideas into sales leads.
