I’ve been a graphic designer since my first design job at Hank Graff Chevrolet in Davison back in 2012. I originally wanted to be a Video Game Designer and receive an Associate’s Degree in Computer Animation, but unfortunately, there really isn’t any opportunities for that career in good ol’ Michigan.
Instead, I used what I knew about Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and my knowledge of file formats and 3D software to start my career as a Graphic Designer. I went back to school to get my Associate’s in Digital Media Design from Baker College.
After graduation, I started doing a lot of freelance work with local companies and worked with the company I did my internship at on some pretty fun and interesting projects. Eventually, I moved over into one of my friend’s businesses doing Web Design at Comp Guys in Flint.
From there, I moved onto a small Marketing Support Services Company Troy, Michigan called ShannonLoren as their lead Graphic Designer.
