2007 – 2009
Collegiate internship turned full time freelance. The most fun and creative role here was product design for both Xonex and their clients. However, I also did product photography, photo editing/retouching, print graphic design work, and website design & coding.
I started out as an intern and shadowed the staff designer. Here I began to do the production work for print catalogs.
When the on-staff designer left for another position, Xonex decided to bring me on as a freelancer during my final year in college instead of hire a designer to replace him. It was here that I started to gain my footing for project management, photography, print/digital work, and product development. I even progressed to working with overseas factories directly to supervise/approve samples and specifications.
I was also responsible for working on a small collection of accessories for sale. The patterns and colors are all my work and really stood out in Xonex's product/collection line-up at the time.
