I'm a creative Graphic Designer experienced in Adobe Creative Cloud. I have extensive Higher Education and Advertising Agency experience, and I work very well with other co-workers. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a BFA in Graphic Design – 1996.
I started my graphic design career in Chicago, working for the International Engineering Consortium. I was the lead Graphic Designer for the O'Briens Agency, designing print material for General Motors. I worked at BBDO Detroit (on the Chrysler Team), as a Production Artist/Graphic Designer through The Creative Group. I helped to create domestic & international catalogs that were showcased in Chrysler Dealerships around the world. I worked at Eastman Outdoors, designing packaging for outdoor leisure products (retail). I worked as a full-time Graphic Designer at Lansing Community College in the Communications & Marketing Department, where I designed digital, print material, and various graphics for the LCC web site, billboards, electronic signage, etc. I also taught Mac Basics & InDesign courses as Adjunct Faculty. (I served on LCC hiring committees as well). I worked for EISEN, where I not only rebranded their image, but also represented the 'face' of the company, attending career fairs, and scouting out new & upcoming talent. I worked at Dart Container Corporation in the IT Department as a contractor through TEKsystems (IT Service Management). I've also worked for The Creative Group, designing print & digital material for X-Rite PANTONE®, Inc. in Grand Rapids, MI and the Michigan Community Action Agency in Okemos, MI. I'm currently working as a full-time Graphic Designer for Exclusive Brands LLC in Ann Arbor, MI. I'm a Graphic Designer, but I wear many hats; I'm very confident with my marketing, communications, & advertising skillset. I will help your business to thrive, succeed, & prosper with my passion for marketing, advertising, & graphic design.
WHAT I ENJOY DOING FOR FUN
For fun, I enjoy spending time with my kids, family, friends, & dog. I also enjoy playing and working on my late 2013 Mac Pro. I'm a bit of a computer geek, so I spend a lot of time on my Mac Pro listening to music, checking out social media, playing video games, retouching photos, and designing cool new stuff.
I was also Creative Writer & TOP READ AUTHOR for GoDates: https://www.godates.co/author/william-watson
I enjoy lovely sunny days, and I love to spend time outside getting a tan while having fun. I'm also an avid shopper; I love shopping for new things that will improve my lifestyle (usually on sale, of course).
