Jerry Wall’s Resume & Portfolio

The Interactive Portfolio and the Strained Brain.

A

By jerry Wall

resume is soooo boring and really not very informing. Yes it does give you a general idea of what a person’s skills and personal goals are, but really in the course of ones career can years of accumulative experienced be thrown down on a simple piece of paper and project a response that screams “HIRE ME”? One would be so lucky to even solicit an meager “interview me”. In today’s fast pace and highly visual society one must communicate one’s experience and skill in a new way. That new way is Visual and not just words. I decided to do my resume in a Magazine format (but I can still give you one in the old style for your records)! Web pages have gone from stagnate and static sites to full motion and multimedia, sound and responsive interplay. Buttons and Banners and videos oh my! This magazine Resume

hopefully do more than tell you my experience but will also show you as well. Graphic Designers have come along way since rapidograph pens and waxed galley type. We have been swept from the t-square and paste up era to a highly evolved computer design system with an array of creative tools that push the visual stimulus envelope even further with each program update. Billboards are now in rotating plasma and LCD lights, beckoning the passerby to gaze on it’s promotional lure without driving into a streetlight or a nearby ditch (this might actually work well for an auto repair ad). Interactive books embedded with sound and video are being read on todays Ipads, kindles and smart phones. Websites construct cold code with impactful graphics and multimedia, flash animation and videostreaming. The printing on paper is far from dead but must be highly competitive and innovative to keep up with the electric media that is quickly dominating the commercial market and vying for the buyer’s purchasing power. Ads have to be slick, creative, eye catching and persuasive to be effective in a world of often over stimulated senses. Today's graphic designers aren’t just yesterdays artists but often must be proficient in a variety of complicated skill sets, often merging creativity with productivity at a dizzying pace. If there is any downside to this, perhaps it is the schizophrenic task of merging the left brain with the right brain. It use to be the creative people did the front end on websites and the code nerds did the back end. Today unfortunately the creative genius also is expected to be the intellectual and often mathematical genius as Page 3

well. Have we started to substitute talent for training? Todays artists are often expected to know not only the tools of the creative arts, Creative suites 4 or 5 (Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design, Acrobat, Bridge, etc); not only motion and interaction programs (Flash, PowerPoint), but often video and sound editing programs, as well as production programs (Microsoft Office, Filemaker, ) and social networking programs for remote work when we are not at work. It started out with the graphic artist being artistic with some computer skills and then the expectation was for him to be the company webmaster. Graphics artists had to first learn HTML, and a few editors like Front Page and Dreamweaver. Now he can scarcely get a job if he doesn't know CSS, Java script, CGI, Pearl, XML, XHTML and a host of other new and emerging computer language. I remember when these people were actually called computer programmers. I suppose due to the economy, companies must get as much skill out from as few persons as possible, but then again there is an old saying: "Jack of all trades Master of none." Perhaps in the future we will get back to people who specialize. You know..."Experts", Masters of their crafts. Yes I can save money on a handy man. But will probably get a much better job if I can hire a carpenter, an electrician and a plumber (I know, it sounds like the beginning of a joke). So meanwhile back to the portfolio, whatever level of skill you have learned, don't just say it, Show it! Just try to keep both hemispheres of your brain together while you do it.!

here are two aspects to designing: Creativity and Technicality. One requires inspiration, vision and foresight, the other is the understanding of complex technical computer skills. Computer skills for the designer are essential for 4 areas: 1) Design skills. The designer must learn graphic programs such as Illustrator and Photoshop to create visual images using hand drawn art or photograph manipulation. He has to utilize many tools, menus, filters, effects and so forth to create his product. 2) Layout Skills. Programs such as Quark and InDesign will help the designer deal with multiple elements such as graphics, body type, headers and multiple pages. Like a jigsaw puzzle he must put the various elements together using fit, balance and white space. 3) Web skills: many Designers must know at least the essentials of web page building. Although allot of it is back-end coding, the internet is still a graphic driven entity and creating web graphics has its own particular skill set. 4) Pre-press Skills. A file created for the web will not do the printer any good. Its requirements are quite different. The Graphic Designer needs to know the difference between RGB and CMYK. He needs to understand spreads, bleeds, pagination and gripper space. He needs to know the difference between 72 dpi and 300dpi. Then there is the whole area of File Managing: Various file formats, file conversion, color separation, photo editing,

rasterizing, rendering and file ripping (converting file for plate burning). I spent 25 years in the printing business. I started out as a deliveryman. My brother was a Bindery supervisor so I worked with him for awhile learning about cutting and folding and stitching and collating, drilling and just about everything that could be done once something was printed. But I was curious about the printing process so I hung out after work and watched the pressmen. I eventually ran small presses, did camera work, and film stripping and plate-making and moved up to supervisor. I worked most this time as a freelance Graphic Designer and my experience in printing gave me the edge. Our Art department knew our requirements but outside designers were constantly having the files sent back because they were not up to the required specs. It is a shame that all designers aren’t requires to tour a print shop. Then they might understand a bit more why you add a 1/8 bleed to a page when you trim it on the cutter, or what a gripper is on a press that pulls in the sheet and why you must make allowance for it in layout. Maybe when they see that a press runs 4 ink cylinders (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black-CMYK) to print full color or how all printing is done by tiny dots on the plates that pick up ink (thus DPI-dots per inch) they can appreciate the need for the high demands of printer specs on their files. My many years of experience as a printer make in the uniquely qualifies as a production manager -JW and graphic designer in the collateral field.

On the cover there are 8 areas of graphics that I am experienced in (9 if you count web graphics). But these aren’t the reason’s I am talking about. As a supervisor and manager I have had to hire and fire. I know the importance of looking for good people (not just qualified people). It has been proven that the quality of life in a workplace is as important to productivity as is skill, ability and efficiency. I have worked alongside coworkers who are very adept at there jobs and yet were narcissistic, overbearing or just a pain to work with. Often they are retained for their skills in spite of their unwillingness to be a team player. Unfortunately many other good workers leave because of it and now the loss affects the whole team. A good worker must entail several factors. Below I list eight: 1) EXPERIENCE: I put this at the top of of the list because often it is one of the most important reasons for hiring a qualified candidate. Yet I often see ads now for intern Graphic designers. Companies hire people right out of school or

while they are going to school. My thinking is that it would make me a bit nervous working for such a company. They obviously are doing it to save money but must not care about quality. There is much to be said about experience. I would rather be around someone who has learned his mistakes than to be with one who is making them now! There is no doubt that in any profession it takes time to master certain skills. We are human and therefore subjected to error but we can certainly minimize those errors by bringing aboard an experienced craftsman rather than a novice. With 25 years in the printing profession and nearly as long doing graphics for advertising, including 2 years in magazine production, and 3 years newspaper layout I think I can say I have learned the ropes of this profession. 2) HUMILITY AND BEING A TEAM PLAYER: Becoming an expert can make one prideful, arrogant if not at least overconfident. But real experience Page 8

2011

realizes that no matter what programs, principles or skills you master there is always much more to learn, often even at the hands of others less skilled. This is why an open collaborative environment is so conducive to productivity. Cubicle thinking alone is limiting potential where much can be learned with teamwork. We all only know in part. I teach drums and people often ask me who is the best drummer in the world and I tell them no one. Some drummers are better at fills and rolls, some are faster while others are more creative. Some are pocket drummers who are great at keeping a steady beat while other have great dynamics and can change volume and speed and can quickly adapt to a bands innovation & spontaneity. Some drummers are great at some things and other drummers are great at other things. You just have to respect them all. True humility recognizes not just what we have mastered but what we have not. We are always to be ever learning and cognizant of new ideas and new ways of improving ourselves.

Eight Reasons why you should hire me! 3) CREATIVITY. My older brother has 3 degrees , a former NASA engineer, retired Air Force Major who worked in computer security, and yet will fly me down to Florida to install a hard drive for him because he is mechanically inept. I can build a house from the ground up and fix about anything and he always says “ How do you know how to do this?”. I tell him because as kids when he was reading and studying I was building and creating. I started painting and drawing very young and it gave me an inventive mind. I took a couple years of computer classes in college in hopes of being a network geek when I realized I wanted to use the computer to design and create so switched my major to multimedia and graphic design. I love it so much when I am bored I open up Photoshop or illustrator and fool around trying to do different things or I search the internet for new techniques. I read graphic books and magazines to get inspired. I love to create new things. Whether its an ad or a logo or a page layout, it is never boring to let the creative juices fly! 4) DEDICATION: I was a boy scout for awhile as a kid and I had to memorize the Scout Law. “A scout is to be Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.”. As a kid this helped me to form my first morals. Trustworthiness and loyalty became a big part of my thinking as I grew into a man. An employee has to be trustworthy, dedicated and committed not

only to the company but to the task at hand, and to the client’s expectations. We have to be motivated to more than just a paycheck. We have to me responsive to the needs of the clients which intern affect the well being of the company. A dedication to a well satisfied customer will often do more to benefit a company than billboards and well placed ads. Printing companies can be a cutthroat business but I have seen too many of them fail simply because they failed their clients. 5) INTEGRITY: I am a dedicated christian and my faith plays a big part in not only who I am but in what I do as well. Like I said I think it is important to hire good people not just skilled people. Whether its a religious conviction or a strong moral compass, a man’s integrity will reflect on a companies integrity. A business certainly is about making money but it is often based upon repeat business which requires customer satisfaction. Nobody looks for a dishonest car mechanic or a shady air conditioning man. I think people generally are looking for honesty and certainly long term relationships are based on solid trust. 6) AN INDEPENDENT TEAM PLAYER. Once an employee gets past the acclimation period (everybody does it different), you don’t want to have to babysit them. You want to be able to trust them to work on their own, in their own environment and according to their own skill sets. There has to be a measure of independents, Page 9

2011 personal responsibility and individual self reliance. As a manager a found it more productive to not always look over everyone’s shoulder but to give them the space to do their jobs without being too overbearing. It is important that people can work well independently. It also is important they the do not became too independent because most jobs work best with a corroborative spirit. Different people are skilled or more adept at certain things and we can learn much from others. At times it takes a team effort to accomplish a goal and working well with others is as key to performance as anything we ourselves can bring to the table. 7) LONG TERM COMMITMENT. I must say I am in it for the long haul. I am looking for a career move not just a temporary job. I want to be a part of a well established company that actually has goals and not just deadlines. I would like to work for a company that has growth in mind because I too have growth in mind. Existence alone is not existence. We must project ourselves into real purpose and long term relationships help build a greater destiny. A company is on a journey that is more than day to day and over the years I have worked for many transient companies who lacked vision and therefore lacked growth. I hope I can instill a higher vision with my efforts and do more than trade a few hours for a few dollars. 8) COMPETITION. The final reason why you should hire me is because if you don’t, your competitor just may!

The Best of both worlds: design and Layout I must say that magazine design is my favorite design venue. It incorporates the best of all design elements: highend creative graphics, Photo usage, innovative type font usage and a wide variety of page layout functions including multiple columns, call-outs, drop cap text, graphics with wrap around text, full bleed ads, creative headers and much more. Magazine work represents the best of both worlds: Creative Design and intricate layout. Often people complain about graphics being too busy. But in the magazine world this is just what you want. A conglomeration of probing and thought provoking articles, high energy ads and striking graphics. It’s like taking a trip to a visual mall. People want to turn the page to see whats next. This is the challenge of the magazine designer. Get their attention and hold it. Magazines such as Wired have become hugely successful by emblazing single page articles with cutting edge graphics and creative layout. Cover Design has become an art in itself alone. The Cover is critical, because it’s the first thing readers see and must grab your attention right away. The whole philosophy of design finds its fulfillment here. The trick is to first capture the eye, then the thoughts (and for advertisers, the pockebook). Page 10

Working the jigsaw puzzle! I worked for two years as the Production Manager for a 200 page monthly Trucking magazine. Putting together a 200 publication every month is not an easy task but because things were so well organized even with a small crew it went off nearly every month with out a hitch. My job wasn’t creative so much as it was productivity and management. I dealt with dozens of top advertising companies across the nation that created ads for out clients as well as worked with our own Art department.
