mbb+ advertising

designer october 2016 to present

Currently, I'm a designer for MBB+ Advertising. I was a jr. designer for about two months before my skills kicked that abbreviation away. I work on a variety of clients throughout the agency including pro-bono work, but my mouse predominately falls on a local Coca-Cola bottler, Chinet disposable tablewear, and Niagara spray starch. During my daily grind, I'm concepting and creating posters, social posts, landing pages, banner ads, t-shirts, print ads, keynotes... and well you get the idea.

sullivan higdon & sink

art director intern june 2016 to august 2016

Summer art director intern and part-time sheephater for a full-service advertising agency in Kansas City on their MerialĀ® team. In close collaboration with senior art directors and copywriters, I created and implemented everything from social media posts to websites to email marketing materials to even designing a coffee cup. I did all that and still had time to make the office coffee every morning.

true/false film festival

boone dawdle lead designer may 2016 to august 2016

Lead Designer for the True/False's fundraising event, the annual Boone Dawdle, a day of biking, drinking and watching a great documentary. As the lead designer, I created all the materials for the event including passes, shirt designs, sponsorship plans, and any other thing that came across my desk (or couch, if I'm being honest).


previously

columbia missourian

Before advertising, I worked pretty much exclusively at the local paper in Columbia, Mo. in a bunch of different roles: designer, teaching assistant and creative director.

swift

I had the opportunity to study abroad in Brussels, Belgium and interned for SWIFT's internal communications team. It's easier if you just google what they do.

the maneater

I cut my teeth immediately in college on layout and design with The Maneater, the student newspaper at Mizzou. Second semester there, I managed production.
