I had the privilege of working at Advanstar Communications as an in-house graphic designer and recently as a freelance designer. Advanstar is known for it's impact on the tradeshow industry through their events like the comic convention, Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo and the world famous fashion tradeshow, MAGIC (formerly MAGIC MARKET WEEK). I was a part of the creative team for the MAGIC tradeshow for a couple seasons. I worked on anything from print (show signage, advertisements, show directories, lookbooks, and one/two-sheets) to digital/web (email blasts, web banners, social media artwork, digital ads, digital signage, and digital lookbooks), and even on-site at the Vegas show editing/retouching photos and doing any last minute edits to show materials. Below are a few of the projects I worked while at the company.
