Pipeline Press

I grew to the position of director because the company relocated to Cape Town and I moved with them.  In JHB I was jnr graphic designer and ensured all artwork was imposed correctly and repro ready.  Once in Cape Town my duties expanded to the sales team, including estimates, artwork, client liason and scheduling collections/deliveries. I became involved in helping out wherever I was needed including the finishing department in order to meet deadlines.  As the company grew so did their staff capacity and my duties were then mainly focusing on impo-schemes, staff management, client liason, artwork and estimates.

Job Discription:

·Sourced new customers.

·Established new suppliers.

·Oversaw production and deliveries.

·Estimating, impositions, repro and client liaison.

Repro, Graphic Design and Print Specialist

Repro – Graphic Design – Digital/Litho Printing

I am a repro, graphic design and print fundi with proven manageress capabilities that I have successfully applied within the printing/advertising industry.  I have the ability to create ideas from listening to the client, brain storming with them and interpreting the look and feel they require.  I am very meticulous and have a good understanding about the expenses incurred due to lack of care or interest taken when sending a job to repro.  My passion for printing is evident to clients and is shown in my designs and the finished product. I have been in this industry long enough to know the implications of poor service and bad delivery.
