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?

Accomplished Writer Julia Shines in April Talent Spotlight


With an impressive resume and down to earth, friendly attitude, Julia C. is the ideal candidate and in the spotlight this month for CM Access. Julia is a professional writer, editor and researcher with over twenty years of experience in roles ranging from Sr. Editor, Content Manager to author of a non-fiction book.

CM Access Lead Career Advocate Lisa Manning matched Julia with a Sr. Copywriter role for a large retailer’s in-house team. Julia was impressed with Lisa’s personalized touch and ability to quickly find a position that met her career interests. Looking to transition from agency roles to in-house positions, Julia welcomed the opportunity. She thoroughly enjoyed copywriting for a variety of integrated channels including print, digital and newsletters. Julia also had a hand in the development of a social media strategy, focusing on brand points consumers are passionate about to build a community, increase interaction and bolster viral reaction. She says it was a “great experience” and calls Lisa a “huge support.” As the mother of three children and an established writer, she appreciates that temporary staffing offers both flexibility and a wide array of opportunities.

Julia appreciates roles that enable her to help distinguish a brand and give it greater reach. She especially enjoyed her experience with a respected medical journal as Lead Copywriter. Working with creative, design and marketing teams she crafted and mastered the distinct tone, image and brand messaging, speaking to each publication’s various audiences. She relishes learning the vocabulary and specialties of each client she works with.

Julia’s creativity is not all work and no play. She flexes her creative muscles recreationally as the voice of New England Patriot’s coach Bill Belichick in her own parodical blog. Notorious for his vague comments to the press, Julia felt this was the perfect opportunity to give Belichick an open mic and have some fun. Since February, Belichick has been on hiatus, but Julia assures us he’ll be back once the draft gets started.

A creative writer like Julia adds star power to your team – if you’re searching for a talented creative, marketing or interactive professional give CM Access a call today at 800-330-4110.
