With the arrival of the new year, times are changing and so are the faces here at Vital Design. We are very happy to welcome our newest team members, graphic designers Jesse Rand and Shane Rutherford.
Jesse and Shane will dive into many exciting projects Vital Design has slated for 2011. Jesse will work both in graphic design and Web development while Shane will focus primarily on graphic design and branding.
Jesse’s previous experience includes time in the Boston mobile start-up industry as an in-house graphic designer where he produced branding, print and Web collateral, and mobile UI development. He even produced and directed his own segment for Bryant Gumble’s “The Economic Report.” He returned to NH to work for a small marketing company, where he was responsible for the design and development of numerous small medical practice websites from around the country. Jesse holds a BFA from Plymouth State University, with a concentration in graphic design.
“I’ve always admired Vital’s online marketing presence and overall aesthetic from afar,” Jesse said. “To say I’m excited to finally be a part of this team would be a gross understatement.”
A Portsmouth native, Shane has worked extensively as a designer, photographer and marketer in the action sports industry in San Diego, CA where he worked for national and international apparel brands. He has also worked as a graphic designer at Infinite Imaging, Ideal Health and previously at Vital Design in 2004. Shane was part of the team that designed some of the most popular brands in Vital’s portfolio.
