Position Title: 
Graphic Design/Content  & Branch Marketing Specialist
I started at Fairway IMC  - Chico in November of 2021 having little to no knowledge about the housing industry. I learned as I went because in order to help market and design content for the company I had to know the basics along with learning the ins and outs of the corporate graphic standard. In addition to this, I was the only graphic designer on the marketing team so I essentially built their brand identity from the ground up. 
Fairway IMC Chico had originally been called Summit Funding Chico and made the switch over in January of 2022, a couple months after I had started. During this time I had to relearn a lot of compliance guidelines and help with the transition. ​​​​​​​
Job Duties
• Managed social media by posting organically, interacting with local brands + businesses. (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.)
• Created monthly and seasonal advertisements for Facebook + Google ad campaigns.
• Filmed and edited video content for events and promotions.
• Prepped and proofed print materials.
• Designed digital assets for websites.
Fairway IMC Chico had an increase in over 150% in followers and engagement during the time that I was managing their social media. 
There was also an increase in engagement with others in the business with real estate companies such as Keller Williams, Platinum Partners, and Century 21.

I helped to prep design files and communicated with vendors in order to have these physical branding assets made. 
What I Learned
Working with Fairway I learned a lot being being an independent designer.  A lot of the time I was relied on for making judgements about design and things related to design.  There were many projects here that had very quick turnaround times so I learned to be efficient in my design to try and push out more content.  Self motivation and setting my own deadlines were also a crucial skill that I developed during this time.  I also learned a lot about finance and home loans, although unrelated to design, was really useful to know.
