“creative coordinator, in-house graphic designer, and manager of the comics department at Creators:”
I supervise the comic department and design and write advertisements for Creators. My primary responsibility is to oversee the comic department and ensure that 37 comics meet daily deadlines for printing and international distribution. I accomplish this by maintaining spreadsheets and constantly communicating by phone and email with cartoonists, editors and printers. In addition to managing the comic department, I am also a designer and writer. [Since 2012] I have collaborated with creative teams to expand the Creators brand. This position requires me to produce designs that maintain a consistent aesthetic and brand identity across digital and print platforms. I write copy and work with editors to translate concepts through text and imagery.
