Senior Web/Graphic Designer
I began my working life as a Network Administrator at the law firm Clayton Utz. During my time there, I occasionally was asked by the Marketing department to help out with designing promotional material (being in IT, they assume I know how to use every software program under the sun) and they were very impressed with my work. I was then asked to help setup the companies Intranet, which I really enjoyed doing. I realised I have a greater talent for creativity and design than Networking (It was also a lot better than being on call 24/7 as a Network Administrator!).
To pursue my creative interest, I completed courses in Graphic Design and Web Design. I left Clayton Utz and started work at HUBB Financial as a Web and Graphic designer. My first task was to design a user interface for intricate software they were developing, Quicken ShareAnalyser. Since then, I have assumed responsibility for the development and maintenance of all of the company’s web and graphic design needs including:
- HTML email marketing
- Online banner advertising
- Flyers and forms
- Books covers
- Business cards
- Packaging material
- PowerPoint presentations and
Web and graphic design are constantly evolving and I love the challenge of refining my skills to maintain my place at the cutting edge of this dynamic industry.
