Schissel Design

Joann Schissel, Certified Usability Analyst


I’ve been employed as a Graphic Designer, Art Director, and Internet Manager. In between full-time employment, I have worked as an independent contractor, so I’ve experienced many aspects of the industry. I have 20+ years experience in print and web design. I work on both Mac and Windows and I am proficient at using these applications: Adobe Suite including Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver; MS Office including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. I also work with Flash, CSS, and HTML.

Technology and our interaction with it is constantly changing. I like to keep learning about new techniques by keeping up with online training resources and networking with others in the industry. One accomplishment that I am proud about is that I went back to school to get a Bachelors degree in Information Technology – Visual Communication (BSIT-VC) and graduated in 2010 (I am a Phoenix).

I think there are so many opportunities in today’s marketplace for creative thinking being harnessed with research-based principles that can enhance many forms of digital communication.

I am currently seeking work on contract, freelance, full-time or part-time. I also offer volunteer work for non-profits.
