American University Library, Washington, DC
2003–Present Design & Marketing Coordinator
After working as support staff for two years at AU, I successfully lobbied to create a position for myself as the library graphic designer. In 2007, I was able to create a case for adding the responsibility of marketing coordination to my purview. In this position, I am responsible for creating a cohesive visual identity, providing the library with a prominent presence on campus, and addressing the day-to-day design needs. As the sole designer, I’ve had the ability to take on many additional responsibilities, like print buying, photography, copy writing, editing, coding, and running a print shop. In the past four years, I’ve also begun mentoring future designers by supervising a student design assistant.
