My name is Michael Amason, and I'm a Graphic Designer currently based out of Barboursville, West Virginia.
I graduated from Florida State University in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts of Graphic Design with concentrations in Print and Web Media.
Ever since then, I have been traveling and designing, moving from Florida to Germany, to New York and Colorado, to Texas and California, then finally out here to West Virginia.
I got my start as a independent designer, working on my own to make ends meet. Since then I have had the pleasure of working with galleries, non-profits, bands and individual artists.
I specialize in :
- The Adobe Creative Suite, with concentration on Illustrator, Photoshop, Audition and InDesign
- Both Mac OSX and Windows OS
- The entire Microsoft Office Suite of programs
- Content Management Systems such as Wordpress
- Ecommcerce software like Magento
- Coding in HTML5 and CSS
- Sketching, hand lettering, and painting
- Packaging design and layout
- Porting text to the kindle platform
- Video Editing via Final Cut
- Music Mastering via Cuebase and various other programs
I have working knowledge of:
- FileMaker Pro
- PHP programing
Now, my work has had me compile and correlate books for the kindle platform, design and launch websites, create sheet after sheet of advertising material for print and web, dream up logos for businesses, hand draw line work, peel off some stickers, knock out packaging design, shoot and edit video installations, install ambient audio installations, design loudspeaker enclosures, and so much more.
So, let's talk!
