What does this client’s business do?

Believing in creative leadership, the marketing, advertising, and design studio applies a refreshing approach to helping clients engage their customers. Their diverse team of experts translates ideas to various creative solutions such as marketing strategies, websites, and marketing automation platforms.

Who was hired and what was their role?

Given the nature of the company, the client needed a graphic designer with a strategic design thought process. While they need someone who knows how to work on the Adobe Creative Suite and has a working knowledge of website and e-mail builders, they also needed an organized, dependent creative who finds joy in collaboration.

Meeting these requirements, we helped them hire graphic artist Ian Florence Reyes.

  • Developing boards, web mock-ups and other work presentation tools as needed for clients and creative partners (printers, programmers, editors, etc.)

  • Assisting the team from pre to post-prod (e.g., project research, wrapping up the project, and production delivery)

Ian Florence now works full-time in the company’s time zone for $1,100 USD/month.

What was the candidate’s background prior to being hired?

She has been a designer for more than four years and has gained experience in creative design (both for print and online). Her skills include editing graphics, improving UI/UX for apps and websites, and designing corporate newsletters.

Along with her experience, her passion for the arts, desire to express her creative ideas, and flexibility make her the perfect fit for the Marketing, Advertising, and Design Studio.
