Hey, I'm Cole. I'm going provide all your design problems with creative, thoughtful, and detailed solutions! I graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design in May of 2021. During my time in college, I focused on a dual concentration of Illustration and Graphic Design, able to blend the two with ease to craft consistent and quality creations.
I have extensive knowledge in design software, such as the Adobe Suite alongside Procreate and Clip Studio Paint. I actually did a bulk of my portfolio work on my iPad through Procreate, and then blended that artwork with the Adobe Suite. Many times throughout my college career I also had the opportunity to work in video editing, granting me experience Adobe After Effects and Premier.
I got to back up my artistic skills with experience in the office when I landed my internship at The Beistle Company. There, I gained invaluable knowledge in teamwork, created professional quality designs, and learned time-saving tips and tricks. Not to mention the unique experience gained in local and international manufacturing.
My hard working attitude and personable demeanor allowed me to spin that internship into a full-time position in the Prepress Department. There, I gained skills in bulk printing, variable data printing through XMPie, creating step and repeat templates through Artpro, and managing communications with all departments of the company. Combining my love for Graphic Design and my newfound knowledge and experience in printing means I can now realize my digital projects into the real world with ease.
My passion for the craft itself is paramount, meaning that not only do you get a somewhat odd-ball, determined character, but more importantly, when you hire me you also get to deepen the well of design and illustration skill at your disposal. So, what do you say—looking to add me to your team?
