Springfield Creatives

PERSONAL PROJECT

Springfield Creatives is a not-for-profit group I helped establish in 2013 as a charter board member to help better connect local students, professionals, employers, and businesses.

SGFC Newsletter

Every month I write and send the Springfield Creatives newsletter to members and subscribers to remind members about upcoming meetings and other group happenings. Meet-a-member profiles, featured jobs board postings are other regular features each month.

So Much Collateral

Running a not-for-profit groups takes lot of volunteer time and effort—and lots of production work. I've spent countless hours since 2013 producing collateral for group needs including business cards, nametags, membership and sponsor brochures, pull-up banners, and dozens of keynote presentations.

Portfolio Reviews

Every year, Springfield Creatives organizes and hosts an open portfolio review for jobseekers and students. It's a great opportunity for establish creatives to meet potential interns or applicants, and helps students to meet and rub elbows with working creatives.

Portfolio 101

A couple years ago I hosted a Portfolio 101 workshop for students and jobseekers to share my best advice from a hiring manager's perspective for creating a winning portfolio and resumé. Find my questionable advice like remembering to spell resumé like Beyoncé and more here.
