Hi, I’m Brien. This is my graphic design portfolio.

I work with the Director of Creative Services/Project Management and internal marketing team at Clarkson University. I create campaigns with digital, exhibit and print components that grow undergraduate and graduate recruitment – collaborating with the Director of Creative Services and Project Management, clients, web team and internal marketing team to meet client needs.  I meet independently with internal clients to assess the needs of my projects and present design solutions that are consistent with the Clarkson brand.

I’m a self-motivated, highly creative individual with strong communication skills and the ability to work independently, manage multiple projects and meet deadlines. I have strong graphic design skills and thorough familiarity with the latest Adobe Creative Suite. I have solid knowledge of print production and experience working directly with printers. I create rapid prototypes to validate design concepts with clients and design the user experience from low-fidelity sketches to hi-fidelity pixel mockups. I have professional experience collaborating in a team environment and I’m comfortable communicating with, presenting to, and taking input from a variety of people.

In addition to my in-house experience I also have freelance experience. I’ve designed publications and logos for small businesses in upstate New York. I love my work and I am always working! I always have at least one project in the pipeline and I draw every day. I received my BS in Communication & Media from Clarkson in 2011. I graduated with distinction and received three consecutive awards for excellence in technical communications – in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
