Job Title: Design & Web Manager

 

What that means that I do every day: I create and curate all aspects of our events visual presence. Can include advertisements, email graphics, on-site event signage and programs. In addition to the graphic design work, I build and update our event websites.

What is your favorite aspect of your job? The freedom to try new things and continually improve different elements of my design. In some cases I am creating an entire event brand and I have the ability to steer that in many different directions. Have to keep things fresh and new to keep attendees interested in what they are looking at. I also love seeing a project come to completion on-site at an event – all the hard work coming together and seeing designs of my own all over the event space is a good feeling.

What has been your favorite event to work on at SE? This is actually a pretty tough question. I just counted and I have in some way been involved in ~83 events since starting at SE. Some of those haven’t been completed yet, but just for facts and figures sake. In reflecting upon all of those, I have different events that come to mind for different reasons. Up front is all of our GoGreen Conferences – those alone account for a huge chunk of my creative evolution. Someone else was responsible for the original branding of those events, but I took them on and year over year molded them into something new and the scope of work on those events had me creating so many different kinds of things that I don’t necessarily get to do with client events. Another event that comes to mind is Within Our Reach – I find that event very soothing and I can count on it not stressing me out. Lastly I have to give mention to the Green Sports Alliance Summit 2013, because it took me to NYC for the first time and they had a bomb reception overlooking the statue of liberty… I mean c’mon.

Favorite thing to do in Portland? Probably attending any and all of the various types of festivals. Any excuse to stand in a line with a drink token or eat overpriced yakisoba and I’m there.

Spirit Animal? Giraffe. They are just so tall and goofy and enjoyable! I mean who would dislike a Giraffe?? Just minding their own business, eating leaves and checking things out.

Favorite place you have traveled? Italy for sure – it was my first time out of the Country and I loved every part; Rome, Florence & Venice. Bellisimo!

Favorite Cocktail? Vodka soda, because I don’t mess around.
