Over the past three years, I've taken Amazon Photos Marketing Creative from a one-woman shop to a full in-house studio team.  

As Art Director for the Amazon Photos Marketing Design team, I manage a talented team of creatives to support marketing initiatives and own the creative for all paid and brand efforts. I develop brand identity guidelines, templates, and processes. I lead the launch of new channels, develop creative strategy for our campaigns, research our customers experience, and facilitated workshops to explore the customer journey with our marketing team. I hire and develop designers, a copywriter, production artists, and managed agencies to grow our team, expand our ability to execute and scale our work. With insights from learnings, I redefine the creative approach as needed and collaborate with our marketing managers on upcoming opportunities for additional testing plans.
  
In short, I do a lot.  Below are some examples.
*Please note, several sections are still under construction. Check back regularly for updates.
Established creative intake request
& review process
Using a project management process and intake form I developed and have scaled to support our growing team, I oversee the creative for all campaigns across onsite and offsite channels, including but not limited to web, printed assets, email, photoshoots, paid social, organic social, in-app marketing, and brand identity.
  
Brand identity, expanded expression,
& seasonal guidance
I organize and execute on annual campaign identity and vision work for seasonality and events, mapped to sprint schedules, to enable my team to create templates to automate a significant portion of our production workload, allow ease of collaboration cross-functionally, and ensure cohesion between our parent brand and Amazon Photos throughout the year.

Customer personas & journey mapping
I research our customers to create personas and gather feedback for data to better understand who we are messaging, and lead workshops on customer journey mapping and understanding personas to help the team deliver more customer-centric user flows. 
I document this work along with best practices based on lessons learned through testing and iteration to continually improve our process and the performance of our outputs.
Organic social launch & management
I owned the effort to get our organic social presence up and running across three platforms: Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I researched the audience, created a calendar, produced all content, maintained engagement, and monitored audience.

Improved web experience
Discovering and learning to use a new internal CMS tool, I drove the redesign of our owned web pages.

Prime Day 2020 
I designed for and art directed three separate campaigns for Prime Day, and worked with the UX team to create the in-app photo frame experience.

App refresh launch campaign
In November of 2021, Amazon Photos launched a major app update for our iOS and web apps.
To prepare for the launch, I conducted audits and competitive research before sourcing a set of imagery to display the new look and feel of our app. I updated our brand guides to incorporate an updated color palette which compliments our app, expanded logo options to account for the brand awareness in new marketplaces.
 Executing on production of my designs along with providing art direction to my junior designers, Christina Barton, Sami Everhart, we produced over 520 unique visual assets to contribute to updates across our web pages, emails, paid advertising, organic social media, internal poster announcements, App store imagery, and press kits.
