Talent Spotlight! – Lindsay, Junior Graphic Designer


Lindsay headshotLindsay, the CM Access April 2013 Talent Spotlight, told us she’s been drawn to art and design practically since birth, painting and drawing anything she could get her toddler hands on. I know, we were skeptical too (that’s a long time!), but after checking out her portfolio we recognized her natural knack for design. Lindsay’s graphic design work has an agency look and feel, and we’re told she’s been known to hit the ball out of the park.

A recent graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Lindsay is an Adobe Creative Suite pro with solid grasp of design concepts. She has strong attention to detail and loves getting her designs just right, which makes Photoshop her favorite tool. She’s adept at crafting logos, packaging, advertisements, identity and  branding. She values patience and knows it’s an attribute just as important as design skills. Before diving into any project, Lindsay takes time to fully understands key brand messaging, client expectations and the audience. She enjoys each step of the creative process, and feels getting to the final product is a great accomplishment, but the research, process, experiences and practice are just as rewarding.

In her last two positions, Lindsay quickly worked her way up to leadership roles. She credits stellar organizational skills and a strong work ethic, and is eager to make positive contributions to each client she works with.

Ready for a go-getter like Lindsay to add major value to your team? Let us know – we’d love for you to meet her so you can see for yourself!

Talent Spotlight! – Dynamite Graphic Designer Dominique


Translating clients’ ideas into positive reflections of their identity, products and goals is Dominique’s passion. A seasoned design professional with 10 years of experience, creativity is a strong factor behind her impressive design, but it’s not the only one. Dominique is driven by attention to detail, brand consistency and timeliness. A true creative, her thoughts stray outside the box as she easily switches gears and explores different directions.

Dominique is meticulous and comes highly recommended, with experience at both large corporations and agencies. She’s worked with CM Access for two years and is finishing up a long term contract with a large retail pharmacy and healthcare corporation as a Packaging Production Designer. She’s honed her concepting, design and production skills for various signage and large format window graphics. Previously, she hit the ground running at an international branded play company which targets children and families through a wide-range of immersive entertainment offerings. She created design, layout and production of style guides and brand standards for a number of well known children’s toys. Her agency experience focused on retail design consultancy, where her environmental design skills were strengthened while working directly with architects to structure pathways, design fabric structures and large, formal graphics that were displayed throughout a bank.

Always eager to flex her design muscles, Dominique enjoys projects that blend her specialized skills in branding and identity, environmental design, retail point of sale and multiple graphic design disciplines. She would love to take on a role outside her comfort zone that also allows the opportunity to positively impact and improve clients’ business through her design expertise.

In addition to her full-time work, Dominique runs a multifaceted graphic design and gift boutique service. Launched in 2008, she is the sole designer of the website, packaging and logo. She offers personalized gifts including invitations, greeting cards and ornaments.

Dominique’s favorite personal accomplishment was designing a winning greeting card for the Massachusetts non-profit Project Bread’s holiday card contest. Out of thousands of submissions, her design was one of four chosen to be sold at Whole Foods during the 2009 holiday season. A portion of the sales were donated to benefit Project Bread, a charity Dominique is passionate about.

To discuss how a talented designer like Dominique can benefit your business, give CM Access Career Advocate Lisa Manning a call today at 800-330-4110. Have you seen all our  featured talent? Interested in being featured?

Talent Spotlight! – Self Motivated Designer with an Unquenchable Thirst for Knowledge


Pete is an interactive and user interface designer who is as complex as his designs. With a background in architecture, design and even finance, he’s a big picture guy who enjoys using design to solve problems and improve lives. His projects have ranged from creative direction and design for a suite of financial market trading systems to an animated :30 spot for a transportation client that aired on the 1,200 square-foot Panasonic AstroVision screen inTimes Square.

Pete embraces the opportunity to create, contribute, and to continually push the envelope in his work. He stays grounded and understands the importance of the human element behind each project, “Because, after all, this stuff is designed for other people to use, to help improve their lives, to solve problems. And the more I know about why people do what they do, the better I can do what I do.”

Sample from Pete's portfolio

A highly sought after designer with an impressive resume, Pete specializes in user interface design, information design, information architecture and user flow and website design, all with a distinctly branded slant to it. He prefers being a consultant and finds that working on only one project at a time can get stale. He enjoys that smaller clients often lend the freedom to look at more pieces of the pie, enabling him to see the big picture, while larger clients frequently offer innovative, cutting-edge projects. After CM Access Lead Career Advocate Jamie met Pete at a networking event, he was eager to see the clients and projects she could offer him. Pete’s latest assignment with CM Access was designing prototypes for a mobile application for retailers that push deals to users.

If your team could use an extra set of hands – and a talented designer like Pete, give CM Access  a call today at 800-330-4110.
