I provide the strategic graphic design component of corporate engagements. My work is seen on a global enterprise level and it must preserve the firm’s brand and reputation for delivering the highest quality work.

My primary responsibility is to assess the needs of clients and translate them into concise visual representations while maintaining corporate standards, consistent messages, and promoting the firm’s brand identity.

Examples of the types of collateral materials include:

    • Proposal layout

    • Thought leadership publications

    • Advertisements

    • Presentations and related handouts

    • Seminar materials

    • Newsletters

    • Invitations

    • Posters

    • Fact sheets
