Stephanie Urban Complete Resume

  1. 1. first of all: October 2011 Stephanie Urban 1266 Hathaway Avenue Lakewood, OH 44107 P: 330.608.0166 To Whom it May Concern, My name is Stephanie Urban. I started my own small business, Little Lion Designs, in October of 2009 after a mass layoff at my previous company. While unemployed, I decided to take some time and follow a dream I’ve had for a long time. That dream was to successfully work for myself, creating fabric collage art for nurseries, weddings, birthdays and the like. After suffering the loss of my daughter to a congenital heart defect, I was given the inspiration and time to follow that dream. Named after my daughter’s nickname, Little Lion Designs was then born. Through my work, I am able to spread awareness and raise funding for research of congenital heart defects while providing beautiful artwork for happy customers. I also continue to do design work as a freelance artist and have welcomed some really exciting projects, during this time. Prior to Little Lion Designs, I was an Art Director at Advanstar Communications for two B2B magazines for five years. While employed at Advanstar, I single-handedly revamped both of those magazines (samples to follow) from the ground up, taking tired old trade magazines and giving them the “wow” factor they deserved. Before that, I worked in an advertising agency, which gave me a strong design background filled with variety from several well-known clients, including Kendal Motor Oil, Kumho Tires, Moen and White Diamonds Perfume. I’ve designed and produced many pieces in that time for print (collateral, POP, image, packaging, etc.), and a few for web (base art for clients and our company’s website). I take pride in every project I get my hands on, stretching and expanding my knowledge and control of design with each piece, as I attempt to reach outside of the box. Consistent and devoted to my work, I’ve helped boost sales and continuity of image with the clients I’ve been lucky enough to work with. I take extreme pride in my work. My goals are simple, to work doing what I love and to love my work. I believe each day that I do not learn something to be a waste. I look forward to growing creatively daily and seeing what comes out of my hands next. I take a lot of pride in my work and in my positive working environment. Attached are my resume and samples. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for taking the time to review my information. Have a great day.
