The Resume & Portfolio of Beth Shergalis

Welcome to my online portfolio

Work is as follows:

  • For the past few years I have worked primarily in digital media. Web design, banners, email blasts, user-interface, and even apps for mobile devices.
  • My portfolio work includes print pieces such as packaging and displays, logos, brochures, catalogs and more.
  • I included a wide variety of my work to give you an idea of what I can do for you.

My Resume

I feel I have been very privileged in my life to find a career that I love. Being a designer is a very gratifying profession. There are many opportunities to grow and evolve especially with today's technology. A good designer can never be bored.

In 2009, BD sold the division in which I was working. Not a very appealing time to find a job given the economy. Rather than take a job in a horrible economy I decided to take the road less traveled. The last few years I have spent working in digital media. My past in working in printed media has been great in building a foundation for the ever changing world of visual communications.

  • Photos: Even though you may not recognize the company's name, I'm sure you recognize their products.
  • Note: When I was employed at Sportcraft I designed a net scoring system that the company patented.

My continuing Education

forever

Because of todays technolgy, communication is changing constantly. And I believe education comes in many different forms. I keep up with it by learning in many different ways. Wheather reading articles or searching the internet for information and videos, I make sure to keep up with the lastest software and trends.

I have accumulated many skills in my career and some I use on a daily basis. I have listed some of them below. .


Illustrator

Because of it's versatality, this is one of my favorite programs to work in. I use it for creating ads, banner art, UI art and illustrations. Since I use this just about everyday for at least 15 years, I am very confident in my skills.

Photoshop

Another program that is a real work-horse for me. I know the in and outs of this program and it is excellent for anything viewed on a screen or tablet. All the artwork for RowZones app's are assembled and finished in this program. I use it for retouching too.

DreamWeaver

I use this program for the RowZone.net site and email blasts. I can do both responsive and fixed sites. I also have used this back when I worked for Sportcraft Ltd. I did their first website.

HTML/CSS/JQuery

I use html, CSS, bootstrap in tangent with Dreamweaver. I am very comfortable with these two coding formats. They allow me to get under the hood of Dreamweaver and customize my websites. JQuery has allowed me to build a better user-interface and I love using it.

Flash

A great program that I use with After Effects. I have also created a good amount of web banners with this program too.

After Effects

I really love using this program. It has been very useful for promotional materials on social media or websites.

InDesign

I use this when I need anything that has to be printed on a press. Ihave used for catalogs brochures and some print ads.
