|Hä•roōt| is a graphic designer that's lucky to be living in sunny Los Angeles, California. My graphic designer background started at CSULA while I worked part-time as pre-press artist to help pay my tuition. After graduation I took what I learned from work and school to WS Packaging, Inc. and got my feet wet in large scale commercial packaging. It was there where I coupled my back end printer know-how (flexographic, silkscreen, digital and offset printing) along with new taught design sensibilities to assist high profile clients in their packaged goods as the west coast preflight-art director. I also moonlit during these years to keep my creative enthusiasm curbed. Fast forward a few years and I ultimately landed a great gig at Mattel working for the Barbie packaging team through ProUnlimited. I'm now on the lookout for a creative environment with a challenging atmosphere along with any interesting freelance opportunities available.
