Personal Summary

Greetings!

My name is Erik Martens and I'm an experienced graphic designer excited to find my next job opportunity in the burgeoning NJ cannabis market. I've lived here my whole life and I'm anxious to a part of this historic movement in both human wellness and social justice!

In the course of my career, I've handled large and small format print design and production as well as digital graphics for web and social media. I'm also well acquainted with the branding practices of some of the largest brands operating today, as well as clerical duties such as processing work orders and maintaining libraries of graphics.

Whether you're just starting out and need someone to wear multiple hats or are a growing established company looking for another member of your graphics team, I'd love to hear from you!
