Gagen MacDonald
Visual Consultant

May 2012 — October 2015

Gagen MacDonald is a strategy execution firm that specializes in employee engagement, culture change and leadership development. As the first designer on staff, I worked with the marketing director to build the graphic and illustrative capabilities of the firm.

Working on everything from change initiative logos to presentations, I worked on internal communication campaigns for the majority of the firm’s clients.

I redesigned the firm’s website, created multiple marketing microsites, and worked with various team leads on a continual growth and evolution of the firm’s branding.

In my time with Gagen, I was able to help grow the department into multiple positions and add design-centric products to much of the firm’s workflow.

Sample client list: GE, Johnson&Johnson, DuPont, Phillips 66, Walgreens, Pfizer, Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, BD, Deloitte, Mars, Hyatt, ITT.
