Generalist / Industrial Designer-(BID) / Illustrator / 3D Models
Senior Experience in Objective Driven Concepts, Design, Illustration, 3D Modeling and Marketing Communication.

Good Day:


Offering world class experience in many disciplines, structural and graphic; product design, package design, interior design, exhibit design, design/marketing communication, illustration; projects for firms from Fortune 500 companies to boutique design studios. I’m seeking short or long term part time work that has some intellectual heft to it.

My design approach is objective driven, usually with a less is more approach - concomitant with proven creative instincts that result in successful solutions that benefit your business.


You will find me to be personable, a likable colleague with a good sense of humor mixed with a serious business focus. I am reliable, trustworthy, and ethical. I enjoy working with others and have no problem taking direction.


Below is a partial list of my recent projects.


Thanks for stopping by. Perhaps consider a project to get to know each other. Send me an inquiry or let's talk; I'm much more than a resume or web page. You'll be pleased that you did.

Proficient on Mac/PC platforms in several applications: Adobe CC 2017: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign; MS Office, Word, PowerPoint, and for computer generated 3D models, Blender 3D, in addition to many others.

N.B.: None of the images in the 3D Computer Renderings section are photographs.


Here's some additional background for those who'd like to know more.

I offer a broad range of conceptual, technical and creative services you may require for your business.
I have held such positions within both Fortune 500 companies, mid-sized marketing communication/design, and hi-tech software firms, including my own package design/marketing communications firm which I operated for nearly a decade.


As a result I have worked on a multiplicity of projects:
Oversight and production for marketing collateral, corporate logos, graphics standards manuals, brochures, annual reports, catalogs, packaging (flexo, substrates, embossing, etc.), you name it. Experience with all printing processes (offset, litho, flexo, etc.) and have monitored press runs in the US and Europe.


- As an experienced design/marketing communications person, I utilize strategic marketing methods (critical path) based upon solid marketing objectives (and instinct) in tackling consumer packaged goods/marketing collateral projects. Generally with clean, less is more, approaches.


- As an Industrial Designer, I bring logical application of HFE - human factors/ergonomics to user interface, user experience, engineering, et. al., and am at ease with most technical and medical jargon. I read and understand blueprints, mechanical drawings, etc. with facility and visualize 3D easily in my head.


My written and verbal skills are good. I find it easy to translate the difficult or arcane into common language. Writing projects include the conception/writing of advertising, technical publications, white papers, scripts for commercials, and corporate presentations.


Comfortable on both Mac or PC platforms, proficient with business/creative software - Adobe CC 2017 Suite, (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, etc.), Blender 3D, and many others - Word, Keynote, PowerPoint, Excel.


I use Blender 3D for three dimensional projects, interiors, exteriors, products, machinery, packaging comps and/or other 3D views. SKUs for Kwikee, etc.

If you'd like a resume, please drop me a line. Though it mostly repeats all of the above.


Cordially,

Alan
