Contracted artist for Matthews International
Graphic Designer & Imagery Assistant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 18, 2013
Working a regular 8-5 Monday through Friday full time job through Matthews International. Matthews International is one of the leading companies in statuary, memorials, casket and mausoleum products. I work with the art director and four other designers to create an intimidating amount of photography touch-ups or create photorealistic mock ups of memorials to be used for their memorial design website being launched in June.
I am given a set list of memorials to complete within a time frame, and normally while working on that project new priorities would arise that would taken care of immediately. A large part of the job was time management and learning how to shift from one project to a totally different project at the drop of a hat. It has been very fast-paced work but each image created is extremely detailed and accurately made using original line art or old photography.
many different tasks, great coworkers, detail oriented work
