It all started with my love of print, and the whole beautiful process of the printing press and how images and words are put on paper. I jumped at the chance to start my career as a digital pre-press artist-working at many print houses around the Puget Sound. I also decided to expand my career in service to my country, using my civilian job skills to join the US Navy Seabees and proudly served with NMCB 18 as a Public Affairs Officer/Construction Builder for 22 years. After returning from two military deployments for OIF and OEF, I wanted to round out my knowledge in both photography and graphic design, to keep up with the changing world of digital imagery and video to add to my print production knowledge. I graduated with a BFA in Commercial Photography, as well as achieving a BFA in Graphic Design & Visual Communications in less than 5 years. I offer expertise with color theory, web design, retouch and video editing, as well as product photography, master page layouts, digital illustration and art direction for promotional marketing strategies. This knowledge translates well with my construction skills from the military into industrial and environmental design, social media, UX web design, copy editing and journalism. I can set up design conceptualization for re-branding for your business, creative direction following industry standards, or something new for marketable multimedia and strategic print planning for your project. I have a passion for the art world and its historic influences, especially within advertising. Intrigued by reactions that inspire design, how color and emotion attract attention to an idea. Social media now is instant gratification for our culture. I use these concepts to build an understanding on the advance of the digital realm of e-marketing, and the tried and true history of printed media. I look forward to working with you! KT
