ABOUT ME


Shout! Graphics serves as a freelance moniker for graphic designer Austin Lovelace. Though he's been offering freelance work since 2013, Shout! Graphics as a brand name has been officially registered in the state of Colorado since June 2017. Shout! Graphics offers all manner of design services whether it be, branding, digital, print, or web design.

After a hiatus of The Redheaded Zombie Show in October 2015, Austin Lovelace founded Shout! Graphics in the city of Colorado Springs. Today it lives and breathes in the city of Denver, Colorado. Austin has created an identity for himself as a designer and a professional. Though Shout! has deep connections to Colorado, he provides services to clients in all areas.

Austin has five years of experience working as a professional in the industry. At Private Label Campaigns, he worked as a product label designer and purchase flow specialist. At Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, he managed the company's national web presence, spanning upwards of 25 brands over 30 domains. In all settings, Austin serves as a go-to asset for both print and web design. Austin is pursuing a BA in graphic design at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD).

Supervisor/Manager: Zachary Douglass

Responsibilities

At Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, I design and manage the company's web presence. This includes managing contractors, yearly redesigns, optimizing purchase flow, integrating 3rd party software, bringing new products to market, managing hosting, technical SEO, UI/UX design, and more. All in all, I manage upwards of 25 brands over 30 domains. I use multiple Content Management Systems, including hardcoded websites, WordPress, and Squarespace. I frequently use my fluency in CSS and HTML to make custom edits on heavily managed Content Management Systems. I work with every department to keep every brand updated and to keep customer touchpoints in each market's select brand voice.

I keep a strong technical SEO foundation in place for each website. While researching the ever-changing landscape of SEO, I maintain current Schema, metadata optimized to increase click-through, keyword copy, as well as site load time. In addition to website management, I maintain current information on all company profiles through Google My Business and Yelp.

With a longstanding background in graphic design, I also take on frequent design work. I often create graphics for organic social, email campaigns, paid social ads, banner ads, ticketing graphics, on-site signage, and filling in when needed for high-volume graphic requests.

GRAPHIC/WEB DESIGNER
PRIVATE LABEL CAMPAIGNS


February 11th, 2014 - June 9th, 2014
11562 Colony Row, Broomfield, CO 80021

Supervisor/Manager: Jessie Wood
(720) 789-0233

Responsibilities

At Private Label Campaigns, I was an all-around graphic designer and web designer. My primary responsibility was designing purchase flows and marketing funnels for individual sale cosmetic products and cosmetic subscriptions. I often made adjustments to home pages, situational landing pages, and checkout pages to keep these designs cohesive. These builds primarily took place in Click Funnels, though Shopify was also a frequently used CMS. In becoming familiar with these platforms, I often used HTML and CSS to make custom changes.

I worked closely with a development team to integrate these platforms through API. Large-scale development was often required; in these cases, I used both Photoshop and Illustrator to design mockups to be coded by our development team.

Operating as a print designer, I often designed and adjusted branding for cosmetic products. This meant logo creation, label design, and branding materials. Using InDesign, I also built sales decks and print materials for the company's sales team.
