Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ric Allan LaFollette, and I am a highly experienced graphic and web designer. I moved to Vancouver, B.C. over a decade ago from Detroit, MI. I am legal to work in both the U.S. as well as Canada.
My career began as a graphic artist for a screen printing and embroidering company. Over the years I have developed and acquired many skills in graphic and web design, photography and much more. I also have 3D modeling experience and have received a certificate for completion of training in Mastercam drafting software.
I have over fifteen years of experience in design and marketing. Throughout the years I have strived to maintain excellence in my work. This commitment always greatly benefits those whom I work for and has allowed companies to gain tremendous growth in a relatively short time. I keep up to date on the latest programs, technology and marketing trends that will help ensure my relevance in the field. I am always looking to improve upon myself and my work. I also always do my best to forge and maintain positive relationships with co-workers and especially clients. The website I have redesigned for my latest employer jumped almost 1000% in site traffic within the first month alone. Recently, I was tasked to redesign a tradeshow booth, and prepare all essential marketing materials. This was a coming out party for the company. The booth, marketing materials and videos, all helped make a big splash at the NAEC 2012 tradeshow in Atlantic City. My leadership abilities also were used to help me co-manage an internal sign shop within the same company.
If you need a positive and enthusiastic team player then look no further. I find it to be rewarding working with people to help bring creative visions and new ideas to life.
