Working at JAG, I gained useful insight in communication principles such as prompt customer service and job sheets to ensure every job is carried through efficiently in a team environment, thriving in situations that require critical problem solving in a highly efficient time scale. I've worked with marketing executives, campaign managers and CEOs to provide beginning to end service on vehicle signwriting, brand development and advertisement.

 

At my first official graphic design position, I was able to develop my own brand guidelines and initialise them in corperate events, magazine spreads and web imagery. Among this I managed business social media profiles, improving a careful eye for proof reading and puncuation.

 

Despite this employment not referencing a graphic design placement, it served as a key component in developing skills needed in the industry, such as self presentation and defeating nerves in face to face customer communications and working under pressure.
