Project & Team

Team familiarity, flexibility, and ability to build successful relationships within a given setting.

Perhaps the most useful (and overlooked) skill I've achieved to become a successful designer is the continual, ongoing effort and focus placed upon learning and understanding how others think and work.  It's a great luxury to possess the ability of effectively deciphering and communicating within a diverse ecosystem of professionals.
There are several instances where I'll be asked to collaborate with other professionals and leadership personnel.  Below, are the most common instances where I'll be able to help.
Creative Directors
Collaborate to develop a shared vision for the project and incorporate their feedback into your designs.
Project Managers
Establish deadlines, manage resources, and ensure that the project stays on track.
To ensure that the visual designs and their written content work seamlessly together to convey the desired message.
Web Developers
To ensure that all designs are optimized for digital platforms and that they can be implemented effectively.
Marketing & Brand Specialists
To ensure that all designs align with the organization's brand and marketing goals.
Photographers and Illustrators
To incorporate visual elements that complement or enhance the overall design.
User Experience (UX) Designers
To ensure that all designs are user-friendly and effective in meeting user needs.
Printers + Production Specialists
To ensure that your designs are properly prepared for printing or production.
Clients or Stakeholders
To understand their requirements and feedback and incorporate their input into your designs.
There will definitely be unique circumstances where this list will extend to other parties.  In fact, I welcome the opportunity, as it affords me the experience of learning how others perform their job, which is another vital key to extending my value.
