Timothy Bentley


I am a skilled visual arts professional with 10 years experience in helping companies achieve business objectives through creative design and effective visual communication. With a bachelor’s degree in photography and a technical certificate in graphic design, I am experienced in design industry programs, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Acrobat.

My professional experience includes eight years with Moore Wallace, an RR Donnelley company working with government, healthcare and consumer customers to create and design customized, effective business form solutions using the MECCA 2000 design platform. During my tenure, I was trusted to work on high-profile, security-sensitive government orders to carry the production process from concept and creation to prepress.

I have also worked at Bay Area Imaging where I was responsible for crafting and building trade show displays and signage as well as delivering creative design solutions to deliver company messages and branding. Most recently, I have worked as a freelance designer for Romar Learning Solutions, where I used my talent and creativity to help customers like Pfizer, EMD Serono and Bayer Diabetes Care, visually communicate to their internal audiences. I have also worked on several projects for Solitaire Creative Services designing projects for PaPa Joe's BBQ, Denis' Seafood House and Prince's Hamburgers. As a serious designer, I feel I deliver a wealth of experience, an eye for detail and dependability under tight deadlines to any creative department.
