Karl Brockmeyer - Art Director - Graphic Designer

 

Visual Communicator

In my current position as Art Director, I work with a team of talent responsible for the development of various design concepts for multiple clients reaching across various industries. I manage day-to-day activities related to client projects while developing and working towards the long-term goals of our clientele.

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, develop creative solutions, and challenge ourselves.

Software Experience


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. Today, I primarily work with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of apps, WordPress, and a text editor.
