Diane Frederic

A designer and art director with more than 25 years of real-life work experience; I possess and maintain a solid knowledge of the design process as well as expertise in a broad range of disciplines. At various advertising agencies and design studios I have designed web-based projects, print catalogs, brochures, direct marketing and collateral materials for industries as varied as automotive, outdoor, travel, and fashion. I've been responsible for every phase of the process from initial concept, design and layout through photography, production and printing. And some of those nice folks that I've worked with have been kind enough to describe me as creative, professional, resourceful, energetic and enthusiastic.
