Hello. My name is Aaron Helfferich. I am a digital media specialist from Cincinnati, OH. In 2009, I graduated from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, OH with a major in Visual Communication Technology. Over the years, I have developed and perfected a unique set of skills that enable me to create one-of-a-kind media projects for my clients and employers. These various projects encompass the areas of web development, video production, print, and photography. I have held positions at a variety of multimedia outlets to gain experience in my field of study. In an effort to help you better understand my talents and interests, here's quick look into my personal background and work history.
Monster's Making It Count
Just before graduating from BGSU at the end of 2009, I was blessed to have been hired by Making It Count in Cincinnati, OH. Making It Count is a division of Monster, known globally as the company that hosts the career website called Monster.com. Making It Count is one of the nation’s premier educational training and advisory organization for today’s students and parents. It provides a package of assembly-style presentations that aim to prepare students for college and ultimately maximize their opportunities upon graduation.
Making It Count has given me an incredible opportunity to sharpen my skills in print design in addition to being hired as the company's web designer. My job routine calls for me to be the lead designer on email marketing campaigns, interactive Flash modules, web site additions, and any other form of digital media. However, due to my background in print design from BGSU's Visual Communication Technology program, I am able to assist in the development and creation of print projects. I've even been given an unofficial title of videographer, as I've already been assigned to multiple video shoots and editing projects. This wonderfully diverse work experience at Making It Count has provided me with great responsibilities as a web designer and videographer, but has educated me even further in the print production process as well.
Clear Channel Communications
In the summer of 2009, I was lucky enough to work as a Web Intern with the creative minds at Clear Channel Communications in Cincinnati, OH. Clear Channel Cincinnati is home to six radio stations including the renown 700 WLW, 102.7 WEBN, and KISS 107. While working for Clear Channel, I was privileged enough to be trusted with considerable responsibility on various projects in the online media department. In addition to editing videos, refreshing web pages, and photographing events, I collaborated on the production of some major projects. These projects include the design for a promotional item with Shell gas stations, exclusive photography for Sean Hannity's Freedom Concert in Cincinnati, OH, and a historical website for 102.7 WEBN. These and many other exciting projects prepared me for the work I'd be responsible for at Making It Count.
