2.5 years ago I joined Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) as their Creative Services Manager, providing design direction and development of the marketing materials. Our small group of 6 creates around 1,000 projects a year. Making the change to the health care industry after 9 years in telecommunications was not as big of an adjustment as I had anticipated. The basic marketing needs and challenges are similar, and I have been able to apply lessons learned on past branding initiatives with Sony Ericsson Mobile Phones to many of the brand building experiences I encounter at BCBSNC. Prior to moving to Raleigh, NC in the early 90s, I worked as an art director in Florida and had my own design studio in St. Louis, MO creating advertising for small businesses.
