Graphic Designer at Via Christi Health
July 2013 - Present
I support the largest health system in Kansas using print, web and multimedia design. We work as an internal agency which makes every day a new adventure creating all collateral and internal and external ad and marketing campaigns. My deliverables often include custom illustration and infographics. My work consists of designing print collateral within strict brand guidelines, and photo shoot direction with physicians, staff and patients. I'm proud of my work with award-winning Via Christi Life magazine, a quarterly magazine with patient success stories and health news you can use with a distribution of 100,000+ copies distributed in newspapers, waiting rooms, and grocery stores. I am involved in planning, collaboration with writers and service-line stakeholders. I love working with the patients and seeing how we help real people, although some days it is more like herding cats. I love food styling also! Then the fun of laying out and designing the stories begins!
