First off, thanks for checking out my site!
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Dave Saxton and I’m a seven-year veteran in the graphic arts world.
I began studying commercial and fine art in my hometown, at Luzerne County Community College (LCCC) in northeastern Pennsylvania. Having received my Associate Degree, I knew that art and design was what I wanted to pursue, and was keen to progress to the next level, enrolling at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). After graduating from SCAD in 2008, I eagerly embarked on my career in the marketing arena at eBay Enterprise (formerly known as Pepperjam), focusing on online affiliate marketing, and I haven’t looked back since. Currently, my career path has taken me to Scranton, PA, where I am the sole graphic designer at Fidelity Bank.
As a seasoned designer, my career has been an exciting journey, with constant challenges and new opportunities to work in a multitude of different design arenas. Over the years, I have learned and adapted, accumulating many different skills, techniques and creative approaches. Firstly, I’d consider myself a master of all print-related skills, from using InDesign with direct mailers (including the use of variable data for each mailer), to the actual print production process. But I’ve also worked extensively in the web design field, creating landing pages, designing responsive websites, and developing graphics for mobile applications.
Through this combination of print and web experience, I’ve also gained one of the most important skills in business… teamwork! Learning to work with development / I.T teams, and coordinating with outside vendors, is often under-estimated as a skill-set, but it is my experience that solid teamwork and communication are absolutely essential to getting the best out of your final product.
So that’s a brief summary of my professional background, and I’m always looking for new projects and exciting challenges that will allow me to build on this experience — please feel free to drop me a line through the Contact page on this site if you have any questions, requests or inquiries, or if you would like to see a copy of my full resumé.
