The competition is getting ridiculous nowadays. If the job you want has 50 other people applying and most probably have similar qualifications as you, what makes you stand out?
Think about your job search from the perspective of the hiring manager: She has to spend hours sorting through a zillion
ho-hum, Times New Roman pt. 12 emails or papers that say "I am detail-oriented and a fast learner". Well that's just dandy.
If every resumé she receives is that boring, but she sees one that is presented in a thoughtful and beautiful layout with creative language
and gets her attention, who do you think she will choose to call for an interview? The people with the top qualifications
(unless they're over-qualified, and we won't open that can of worms) and the ones who grab the most attention... in a good way.
Don't send anything with purple font and sparkles.
You need to do whatever you can to get an edge over your competition, and your best first impression is your resumé. Don't leave anything to chance.
Define a consistent, visual identity. Branding is much more than just a logo. Colors and fonts contribute to your overall theme that tells the world who you are and what you do.
Print or digital advertising, brochures, pamphlets, decals, or other promotional materials.
The ability to be creative makes me almost as happy as my morning coffee. Let me work with your developers (or alone!) to craft the digital face of your company.
I can not stress enough the importance of clean design when presenting your business to the world.
Your message costs money, and you want the most bang for your buck, so why hide
your product or service in a mess of colors, pictures, and text that do nothing but confuse?
The first thing I do with every website I visit and every brochure or advertisement I read is determine how long it takes to figure out what they are selling and why I should pay them. If its longer than 5-10 seconds, they failed, regardless of how fancy and slick the presentation is.
I make a point of keeping up with marketing trends and research because our world is not static, and your business needs to be able to adapt. I can help maximize every visit your site receives and every time your advertisement is read.
Your company may be a blank slate, needing an entire identity and online presence. It may just need an overhaul, because what you're doing currently just hasn't been working. You might just need some tweaks here or there, or a little graphics work. Shoot me an email, and let's talk about making the focus of your business what it should be- the focus.
I have almost two decades of experience not only in engineering, but also in real estate, business,
and branding/graphics/web design. I also spent several years in the U.S. Army as an Intelligence Analyst.
All of my background has required a great deal of writing- and writing well.
