PROFILE/RESUME
Karla Little  
Graphic designer
 
I have 15 + years as a graphic designer and have a Bachelor of Science degree from the Art Institute of California - Los Angeles. 

I have excellent project management and technical expertise. I pay attention to detail, and have excellent documentation and communication skills.

I worked for Amgen in Thousand Oaks. I layed out templates for pharmaceutical cartons. I added graphic placeholders for new Global branding with the Amgen logo and branding elements as well as barcode graphic placeholders. I worked on correcting and sending templates for review.

I also have experience working for the Antelope Valley Press for a newspaper. Paying attention to print production was a must and there were strict deadlines for the advertisements. I have excellent time management and organization skills. I work well in a team environment and can also work well independently.
