I was the Marketing & Graphic Design Manager for Blue Haven Pools & Spas National Management Apr 2013 – Jan 2014. During that time, I was in charge of designing advertisements and content creation for various publications nationwide, including magazines, newspapers, web banners, billboards, signage, and specialty publications.
I coordinated national and local marketing programs with a major focus on managing print display ad programs. This involved coordinating traffic and production of artwork / ad layouts for over 60 offices in multiple U.S. markets. I managed the workflow of ad production, executing graphics using Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign and also assigning overflow work and providing overall ad direction to a part-time, -in-house graphic artist, who I supervised. This position also involved coordinating with local media reps in our franchise offices for ad requests, obtaining schedules, deadlines, and all ad specs.
