I am the graphic designer and social media manager for a group I co-created called The Maple Grove: a cheering section at Safeco Field for Mariner’s pitcher James Paxton.
We’ve had numerous articles written about us over the course of the 2017 season (Paxton was in Cy Young contention for a while, so we were good news). If you want to learn more about our formation and what exactly we do, this article, from The News Tribune’s Bob Dutton, explains it the best. I also was interviewed on the local Bellingham radio station here.

In my second year making marketing materials for Anheuser-Busch Sales of Washington, I continued to make a lot of specific event banners for bars.

The majority of the time I’m at AB, I am creating large banners to paper the area. Whether they be to display specials for a bar, pricing at a convenience store, or mark the time and place of an event, these banners are meant to stand out. These are some of the banners I created in my first year there.

The first thing that happened when I got hired as a Graphic Designer for Anheuser-Busch, was the loss of Constellation brands. Constellation owns many of the popular Mexican beers such as Corona and Modelo, so we had to quickly replace those brands’ decor with signage from another of our brands. This involved creating more than 60 separate cooler wraps- wall signage meant to be permanent/stay up for at least a year that surrounds the coolers in convenience stores. Below are some of my cooler wrap designs that went up around the Seattle area:

Straight out of college, I took a graphic design/technical writing internship with cable company Northland Communications. There I worked alongside a marketing team of 4 other people to create their web and broadcast marketing campaigns along with a a few for print. I was treated like just another employee, but with the opportunity to ask for feedback and gain expertise in marketing for a large corporation from the Lead Designer on the team.
Tools I learned to work with during this internship included image database websites such as depositphoto.com, and also how to create ads for tv- motion graphics and plain zap ads.

One of the core duties as Publications Manager was to help out the recruitment team. With new students arriving every quarter, and mentors graduating, The Dream Project relies on recruitment of new college mentors to be able to guide their students’ path to future success.
Materials used often included lawn signs, and pamphlets/bookmarks to hand out to students as they walked to class. Below is a sampling of my final year’s marketing materials.
