I’ve worked professionally in design for six years and photography for eight. My previous roles include:
ADT Security – Design & Marketing Specialist (3 years) promoted to Senior Design Specialist & Photography Channel Owner (1 year):
During my time in this role I collaborated with the greater marketing team as a designer and then later as a senior designer. I created internal and external brand communications to ensure visual consistency across the board and utilized Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat and Bridge to carry out design and photography projects. I had the opportunity to design both print and digital work for our corporate partnerships with companies like LG, Samsung, HGTV, USAA , Disney, Pandora and Amazon. As the lead designer on the creative team, I completed more than 481 creative projects and project managed 113. I was the first appointed owner of the internal and external photography channel at ADT and assisted on product shoots as well as on set with HGTV, where I was the still photographer with the Property Brothers. These efforts were part of ADT’s first-ever Super Bowl spot, viewed 25+ million times. In this role I had both client and agency facing relationships and worked directly with printers and print liaisons and learned to manage all seamlessly.
Kelly Logan Creative – Owner – Freelance Designer & Photographer (2 years – 1 part-time, 1-full-time): In the last two years as a freelancer, I have acquired more than 40 design and photography clients and have created unique marketing content for each.
