Production Professional

I’m a multi-hatted production professional with five years’ experience working at design firms with internal small-batch manufacturing facilities.

 

Being a production professional for design firms is exactly what it sounds like. I’m the colleague who comes in and rounds up all the creative ideas and contextualizes them into a client/vendor friendly format. Whether it is conceptual illustrations, architectural/mechanical designs, prototypes, or samples, they all need to be reined in and packaged for production to move forward.

 

Luckily, I’m obsessed with organization and accessibility. You can have the best solution in the world, but if it isn’t packaged correctly, it won’t do anyone any good. Correct packaging must show brand uniformity, work in an accessible format and display a deep understanding of the user/client. This trait becomes essential when working with emerging tech and requires a diverse multi-format approach. This is why over the years, I’ve branched out into product photography, infographics design, print design, and instructional video production.
