Tim DawsonDigital Designer

Hey there! I’m Tim

Welcome to my little slice of the internet. Please explore, make yourself at home. Have a cuppa while you’re here [Earl Grey is my favorite].

I currently work as a Digital Marketing Specialist for a large caster and wheel manufacturer. I maintain and manage the company’s web presence (seven brand websites, two corporate websites, and multiple microsites) along with social media and our digital product database.

In addition to this role, I have work experience in teaching and creating web and graphic designs. Since 2010, I have operated Michigan Marching – a niche website for the competitive marching band community in Michigan. Built on WordPress, I have developed a reliable, mobile-friendly website which averages 23,000+ visitors annually.

I offer a knowledge of design standards, current design and marketing trends, along with a strong recognition of brand identity and continuity. I enjoy challenges, and while I may not be able to solve every problem, I will surely try. Working together, we may find a solution neither of us previously knew existed.

Some of my technical specifications include:

  • I have a Master’s Degree in Digital Media, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre, with a minor in Electronic Media.
  • I am versed in the Adobe Creative Suite, including: Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign, Premiere, Dreamweaver, Lightroom, and Acrobat.
  • I have familiarity with alternatives to the Adobe software: Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, Final Cut Pro, Brackets, Aperture, and Smart Shooter, among others.
  • I know web-coding languages HTML5 and CSS3, with familiarity with PHP and JavaScript.
  • I’ve used several CMS (content management systems), including WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla.
