Web Designer and Developer

Previously: Graphic Designer (2009), Senior Graphic Designer (2010)

2009 - 2013

As the only Web Designer and Developer, I am responsible for the creation and maintenance of 40+ grocery store websites. I am currently developing a method to service 250+ websites through a common hub. I use PHP, Javascript (jQuery Library), HTML, and CSS3 during the creation process in order to make a wide variety of websites. I also inherited sites that are built on proprietary CMS systems, as well as sites built in WordPress and Concrete5. As a graphic designer, I became a trainer within one year of working for Associated Food Stores. Using Applescript, I developed more than 25 scripts that automate the process of designing grocery ads. These scripts save more than 7 hours per week for each designer across a team of 11 designers (as I have developed and trained our team on the scripts, overtime for our department has decreased from 110 hours down to 35 hours).

Achievements: Retail Marketing and Design: Spirit of the Green Light (2013), Associated Food Stores Focus Award: Efficiency and Innovation (2012), Ad Production's Outstanding Player (2011)
