As a designer who has spent the majority of my career in the world of branding and marketing I am my own personal branding nightmare. My creativity tends to soar when faced with a challenge. I have yet to find a limit to what I might attempt when filled with inspiration. This is great for me as a creative professional but try to make a business card. Sheesh! This is why I have started leaning on "Creative professional" or I guess I might as well just say it like it is "Creative Junkie full of ideas for anyone willing to listen". For instance, you can now add "prop and set design" to my resume. I had a great time creating these for a dance recital. I find that working with props can give you a chance to try out just about any skill you have and even force you to dabble in new ones. These featured props were a process of good old fashioned painting for the rocks, Some image magic and large format printing for the Eric statue and some image transfer techniques for the contract.
