I have been designing creative marketing materials of one kind or another professionally for over 17 years. Before joining Rosetta Stone, I was art director for a regional promotional products company, and prior to that, I designed artwork for a high-end giftware company that made items such as Christmas ornaments, etched glassware, and fine china.
I pride myself in being able to listen to the client to understand their end goal and audience first. Then I get to work communicating that goal visually so deliverables are on brand, on message, and crafted meticulously. I’m mission-oriented and seek to promote the long-term success and brand of the organizations I serve. I see what you mean.
With such extensive design experience, I’m very comfortable collaborating with multi-disciplinary marketing teams, vendors, and stakeholders across a variety of creative asset types. I’m able to use and adapt to the ever-changing standard design tools, systems, and platforms. A recent supervisor commented, “Darin's work ethic and ’yes-and‘ approach to design is an inspiration to anyone who has the pleasure of working with him.”
My wife and I live in Bridgewater, Virginia—a thriving small town just south of Harrisonburg in the Shenandoah Valley—with our two teenage sons and two cats.
