My name is Shukura Holliday, an award winning Designer and Art Director from West L.A. (Culver City). When I saw this creative opening I was immediately interested, as I feel that my skill set and background in design, production, gallery exhibitions and creative services has prepared me for this exciting Art Director opportunity. I have worked professionally with various corporate and creative companies for the past 7 years in the U.S and also in Japan. I also have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Art Direction & Graphic Communications Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
I currently work on a freelance basis doing graphic design and alternative design related projects for commercial production houses and independent labels. The projects include: digital layout for commercial visual treatments, print and front end web/media design, organizing marketing materials for brand exhibitions, creating content for social media updates, attending trade shows, liaising between clients and vendors, handling raw material sourcing, executing point of purchase displays for retail spaces, preparing window and museum displays and so much more.
I’m currently interested in a permanent work opportunity in which I can extend my design knowledge, while also applying my diverse creative skill-set and pro-active spirit to all creative accounts. I have advanced proficiency in various design software including but not limited to: Creative Suite 6 (Photoshop, In-design, Illustrator, Flash, HTML 5, Final Cut Pro, After Affects) as well as MS Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint).
Additionally, I consider myself to be an urban art enthusiasts as well as a foodie! Attached, please find the link to my design website along with my resume for consideration. Many thanks for your time.
All the Very best,
