My first job right out of college was Paste-Up Artist. X-Acto blades and Bestine solvent were my tools of the trade. Before long, computer graphics entered my working world. I accepted the transition from burnisher to computer keyboard whole-heartedly (as well as regaining my sense of smell)! I often look back on those paste-up days with pride because I gained so much knowledge and inspiration from those I closely worked with… they fueled my drive to pursue my career path as a Graphic Designer. I am extremely fortunate to be working in a field I truly love. And yes, I still have X-Acto blades in my desk drawer, just in case!
