In addition to technical writing and technical illustrating, I have a background in graphic design and production.
I've spent some years working for advertising/graphic agencies exclusively as a graphics production artist. There, I was involved in design, illustration and typography for advertising and markering material for some highly visible companies. This was during the late '80s - early 90's when computers had become the benchmark method of producing graphics.
Graphics for marketing and advertising has been a part of other jobs I've had since then as an employee. Though I was officially the company's technical writer/illustrator, I also designed and produced marketing and promotional material such as brochures, ads, catalogs, logos, etc. when needed.
I've also designed and produced a wide variety of marketing graphics, both for online and print applications, as a consultant. This has included not only promotional material, but also business/corporate identity material such as logos and the generation and enhancement of digital photography.
