who is daniel crowe?the man behind the computer
I have been working as a professional designer for over five years. I am currently focused on web design, but I have experience in responsive web design, corporate branding, print advertising, large trade show banners, social media branding, and multi-page PDF documents. I also have experience designing for mobile devices and social applications.
When I am not behind the computer you will find me on the nearest mountain honing my snowboarding skills or hiking local trails. I enjoy taking pictures and catching great footage with my GoPro while enjoying the great outdoors on my board, by foot, or in my Jeep.
where i've been the past couple yearsin other words, my resume
Lead Graphic/Web Designer
August 2011 – Present
I am a Jack of all trades at iConstituent, handling all corporate branding, advertising, client web work, email marketing and print needs. I support over 90+ Congressional website and email marketing clients, design and create new website templates on a custom CMS using HTML/CSS to reach my desired goal, and collaborate with other departments to design print and online marketing campaigns for our many products we sell on Capitol Hill and to public sector.
Jr. Graphic/Web Designer
August 2011 – Present
This is where it all started. As a design intern right out of school, I was tasked with coordinating marketing needs on and off the Hill, from flyers and email marketing to social visits with the clients. Once I became a full-time member of the team, I was responsible for client marketing, including advertisement production, custom web design, and email marketing templates.
Every designer craves an outlet to use their creativity outside of a structured work environment. Freelance has given me that outlet, and taught me a lot along the way. I have learned to collaborate independently with clients, and how to project and stick to deadlines without supervision. I have created numerous website mockups, full WordPress sites, and designed new branding from scratch. Some of my recent freelance clients included Alliance Interactive, Campesio Specialty Coffee, MedCanna Consulting, and 4Front Advisors.
Bachelor of Science in Digital Arts & Design
October 2007 – August 2009
I graduated from Full Sail with a 3.8 GPA. My major taught me the basics of design and also helped me start building my skills as a professional. I took classes ranging from color theory and typography, to 3D animation and motion graphics. Full Sail was very hands on; most classes were “labs”, during which I worked behind a computer creating real work. Professors served as clients and mentors, and classmates were colleagues. I learned an excelled set of skills and turned them into something even more extraordinary, which has gotten me to where I am today.
