Freelance Graphic Designer & Photographer
After a new job ended disastrously with the company (Graf/X) closing its doors a few short months after his hire, Robert sifted through the accounts he had worked and called on prior customers finding steady freelance work with Northwest Athletic Club (since absorbed by Lifetime Fitness). Robert pursued educational opportunities during this time, focussing on learning the art of Photography and the science of Web Design. Robert shot editorial photography for various local media while cultivating a stable of small to medium-sized business customers who appreciated Robert’s versatility and cross-disciplinary skill set. Robert did several gigs with local design agencies during this period.

He began looking for full-time work in Consumer Product Packaging, work he had first done years earlier with Partners & Hunt. Southern Graphic Systems (SGS) offered the opportunity to work with Fortune 500 companies, major players in the Packaging business. SGS is a very vertically integrated solution provider, offering branding, art, photography, design, production artwork, prepress, plating & quality management services. Robert learned a great deal from all the bright and talented individuals he was proud to work with at SGS. Robert left SGS early 2013 to pursue Freelance full-time.
