Global leader in automotive and industrial products
Graphic Designer and Pre-Press Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 1, 2018
I learned so much working at Gates. As a guy fresh out of college, I had the opportunity to learn the latest software for both graphic design and pre-press when I worked in the on-site printshop. There were 50 employees in the print shop itself and a variety of printing presses, including database driven printers for printing variable data. I also got to work with different marketing directors on a variety of projects. The pressure of being under deadlines to get things to print instilled a sense of timeliness that I keep with me to this day. I also had to be detail oriented and communicate effectively. Those skills gave me the confidence and basis for creating a successful design agency.
