Talent Profile
PROFILE/RESUME
Katherine Wagner  
Graphic Designer/Production Artist
 
I have more than 15 years of experience in graphic design, print production and pre-press, including 8 years at Metaphor, a NJ advertising agency.

I am extremely proficient in InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXPress, and I am highly motivated, creative and detail-oriented. My commitment to meeting tight deadlines at Metaphor earned me the nickname “the hammer,” and I was their “go to” person when a job had to be produced quickly and accurately.

I specialize in page layout and design, retouching final art, executing concepts for new product launches, maintaining consistent branding across product lines, production and pre-press.
