Bio
Hi, I'm Jerry. I've been a freelance Art Director, Designer and photographer for 8 years. I love a challenge. My belief in design is based on this "3 seconds is all you have to get the publics attention, either through design, color or subject matter". I'm Mac based and well versed in nearly all aspects of design.

In the upcoming year I plan to expand into video, both shooting, editing and production.

Work Experience:
March 2006 - May 2007 City At Night Magazine (Monthly Entertainment Publication)
Creator • Managing Editor • Art Director • Promotions Manager

Creator of City At Night Magazine I conceptualized the literary content, the look feel and direction of the publication.

Managing Editor (General Manager): I searched for and negotiated for the most cost effective printing for City At Night Magazine. This printing concerned both the printing of the magazine, media materials and swag. I chaired meetings every Tuesday with the writers and approved or denied their story ideas, and tracked their progress. I acted as the buffer between the writers, sales and the publisher. I set up and often did the distribution of the publication.

As Art Director: I coordinated and directed all photo shoots concerning both the covers and major stories. I approved any and all photos used for story content. I also set up the overall feel of the Myspace page and oversaw work done by Graphics/Promotions Departments. Finally I delivered final layout to the printer and stayed around to preform the press checks.

Promotions Manager: Oversaw all events promoted by and covered by City At Night Magazine. This included web-isodes shot on location at clubs. The weekend one-on-one distribution of magazines, fliers, posters and swag to our target demographic. Set up & coordination of City At Night Magazine release parties.

Conceptualizing a marketing blitz or ad campaign

Category: Consulting
Description
Lets say you have a new line of clothes coming out for the urban market. First I'd want to see what the line looks like. Then sit and go over the different models, locations and photographers. I'd also want to work up some sketches of an ad campaign. Next we'd go over said sketches, make sure they meet the target. Then we'd go into production as well as start finding media outlets.
