At the age of 18 I was working as a ‘Sales Manager’ for a small local printing firm. While the role was mainly selling the printing services to local businesses, I also took an interest in the design side of things.
I subsequently went on to earn success within a wide range of print-based marketing products. I held various roles within directory advertising, newspaper advertising and online advertising.
Since then, I’ve continued to develop my Print Media Design skills & techniques.
Senior Sales Executive – Directory & Online Advertising
I spent several years providing Marketing Campaigns to thousands of local businesses. As a result, I benefitted from some of the most valuable in-house training. Many of the advertisements I designed myself which vastly improved the Sales Process.
Regional Account Manager – Directory & Online Advertising
While I was working for Thomson Directories, they had some of the most sought-after training in the UK. As a result, I learnt so much about Sales / Marketing & Advert Design, much of which I still use today!
Account Manager – Newspaper Advertising
I worked at Kent Messenger for about 1 year. They are a leading regional newspaper. I designed most of the adverts myself. I gained lots of knowledge & experience about the adverts that work, & those that don’t.
Over the years I have become proficient in all essential Print Design & Production disciplines:
- Advertising Campaigns
- Advert Design
- Sales Posters / Promotional Flyers
- Business Cards
- Sales Proposals & Invoice Documents
- Large Format Printing
- Graphic Design
- Information Architecture
- Content / Copy Writing
- Photo Editiing / Post Production
