PROFILE/RESUME
Sonia Klauber  
Creative Director/Manager/Designer
Hello! I am a creative designer with 28 years of experience in the field of digital and graphic artistry. Managing teams devised of web, social and marketing professionals for over 15 years. 

I began my love for design early in life. Exposed to builders, designers and architects very early on, pursuing passions in Interior Design, Art History, Fine Art, Photography and Graphics. My life work has become a combination of these mediums. I have taken each door that has opened and added to my personal portfolio to become uniquely skilled at writing, marketing and designing in this market.

I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suites, SEO, Google Analytics, Creative Writing, Package design, Microsoft Office 360 and other email generated programs like Mail Chimp. I value communication and collaboration but I am also an innovative self-starter able to begin projects and see them through to completion. I am a talented and creative designer, often seeing ways to improve upon projects that others may miss. 

Since the beginning of my career I have had many roles, these chapters have taught me how to deliver quality, intentional work with zero room for error and how to do it quickly. I’ve brought that approach to every task I perform and it’s led to some phenomenal results.

I understand the level of creativity, attention to detail and intentional design my clients seek. Having served in industries that range from Luxury Real Estate to Small businesses development, Non-Profit, Higher Education to Healthcare, I know how to adapt quickly and apply my skills to another’s goals. I work well with and for others, I’m positive and I’m contributive.

The final point I want to emphasize is that at this point in my career, I’m looking to join a team with a healthy culture that cares about communication, so I can use my skills to take its design to the next level. I’m a team player - it’s not about my agenda, but that of the company’s.

Sincerely,
Sonia Klauber
