Patent drawing, textile design, map making
Prior to beginning my UX career, I have a long history of freelance. There was always a little extra time during the Summers when I was going to school and later, teaching, to take on these side jobs. Some of these include Web Design, Graphic Design, Illustration, Textile Design, Photoshop, Painting, and Patent Drawing. Although my primary focus is now on UX Design, this background allows me to lend a hand with a wide range of things when needed.
Picture frame mock ups
When I worked for Drummond Framing, I made drawings of what frames would look like with our client's artwork. Because the artworks are not my own, I have tessellated them in the images below. In any case, this initiative substantially increased business for Drummond Framing – As you can imagine someone paying 30,000 for a picture frame for their $30 million Picasso finds it helpful to know how it will look in their space prior to having it custom made. I used Photoshop for this, and measurements are exact-to-spec.
