My major skills

Pictures

When it comes to picture retouching there are few things I haven't done. From beauty retouching or complex composings. You name it, I've probably done it. I also like to do personal photography projects.

Print Design

My bread and butter. In print production my track record consists of designing and laying out magazines and newspapers, as well as production of multilingual catalogues for clients from Germany.

Digital media

This field is constantly changing and I'm giving my best to keep up. Video production from planning to release. Webpage design and basic programming (HTML/CSS, Java, processing) round it up.

Teamleader >> Current position

I started working at Meyle+Müller as a media operator in catalogue production in 2013. After two months I took over my first two clients. I was responsible for the planning, production, administration and quality control for both of these clients, as well as managing our off-shore service providers, to ensure a timely delivery, while keeping the costs as low as possible. In October 2014 I became a team leader and have helped several teams in the company with workflow optimisations. As of January 2015 I have the responsibility, together with some of our specialists, to build up the production for a new client, from the ground up. This includes, but is not limited to: standardised data pools, automatic workflows, online asset database, workshops for the client, quality control using electronic so proof systems and printed proofs, as well as managing our offshore service providers.
