Karl Brockmeyer - Art Director - Graphic Designer

 

Visual Communicator

Currently as an Art Director I enjoy working with a team of talent, which is responsible for the development of various design concepts for multiple clients reaching across various industries. Helping manage day-to-day activities while developing and working towards long term goals.

The ideal fit would be to come aboard another team similar in nature. Developing high-level concepts while helping manage the daily needs so we can surpass client's expectations.

Over the years, I have worked with many software applications primarily on the Mac OS. Some are now long gone or not as popular (Freehand, PageMaker, QuarkXpress) and others have evolved into essentials tools. Currently, I mostly work with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of apps, WordPress, and a text editor.
