Experian, Costa Mesa, CA, US, Sr. Web Designer

At Experian Consumer Direct (Consumer Info), as the Sr. Graphic Designer, I was responsible for the design of FreeCreditReport.com (circa 05-08) and a number of other websites. I'm proud to say that I helped define a brand for freecreditreport.com in a relatively short period of time. FreeCreditReport.com, now known as FreeCreditScore.com, became one of the most consumer-recognized brand names in America. I've developed hundreds of banner ads, icons, and landing pages for partners such as AOL, American Express, Discover Card, Hotmail, MSNBC, CNN and more. While the bulk of my work here is web-related, I've produced off-line ads, brochures, and logos as well. In addition to my design duties, I took on administration of the Digital Asset Management application, Canto Cumulus. This includes ingesting and metatagging over 50 gigabytes of digital files. I was also responsible for training and assisting coworkers to utilize the application.

In July of 2008, I received a promotion to Sr. Web Designer for the Digital Advertising Services department. My primary responsibilities are to maintain the Experian brand integrity and support the design needs of the rest of my team. Some of the projects include producing Flash presentations, storyboarding and voice-over for Flash animations, as well as designing offline collateral, and various inter/intraoffice graphics, graphics for PowerPoint slides, and fulfilling design requests on an as needed basis.

Created all graphic materials and managed content. This website was the first of it’s kind in this genre, and to this day, remains the number one resource for Venture Capital online. VFinanace was created and owned by HTM Logic, a family owned and operated web design company, and was sold to an Investment Banking firm in 1998, who hired HTM Logic to continue maintaining the site on a three year contract, after which our involvement in further development was changed to an as-needed basis.
