Versatile Designer

Hello! Im Rosa Maun.

I do a little bit of everything!

I am a recent graduate of Hartwick College and graduated Magna Cum Laude and received departmental distinction for both my majors. So, for the first time in the colleges history, I was awarded best Senior Art Thesis and best Senior Art History Thesis. During my time at college, I was a collegiate athlete and participated in several internships and even won a design contest to design the logo for our school cafe. I worked very hard so that I could graduate and do what I do best and hopefully land my dream job. Unfortunately, that did not happen.

Upon graduating, I began working for Sweet Home Productions, a small digital marketing agency. I was hired as a Graphic Designer but quickly fell into a role of a Web Administrator. (I know what your thinking, how is that possible? I still ask myself that everyday. ) Upon losing our head developer, I also became responsible for development, management and design of several websites and graphics, all whilst being contracted to photograph events at the local colleges. I was quickly involved in all aspects of design and the digital world, including social media. This position not only challenged me and showed me that I am capable of more than just design, it also taught me about every aspect of the business and most importantly, how to multitask while still delivering excellent content.

I have recently left this company and am looking for a position such as yours, where I can truly be focused on design but still be a part of these other aspects that I have come to enjoy.
