creative. ambitious. talented. enthusiastic. inspired.

I am looking for career in the marketing world, the world of endless possibilities. 

With my experience, I can help businesses and non-profits with their marketing and graphic design needs through cross-channel marketing campaigns, email marketing, print and online media, etc. As a Certified Social Media Strategist, I can help companies develop and execute a social networking strategy within their business. With my photography background and experience, I can perform photo-shoots for commercial businesses and personal events.

In addition, I have a passion for design that I know would be beneficial to your agency. I have self-belief and openness to new ideas, strategies, software and layouts. However, I am much more than a designer as I can follow strategies through the entire process, from implementation to next step suggestions. I can analyze data and campaign results to give future recommendations for the next phase in the strategy.

It would be great if we could connect on Twitter as well so I could get to know you a little better. Follow me on Twitter: @kdavisdesign
