Design and Communications Project Lead
The Art Institute of Colorado
[My education] gave me the fundamentals of design, which have translated into multiple roles and responsibilities. George Rosales , Design and Communications Project Lead Bachelor of Arts in Graphic & Web Design, 2004 , The Art Institute of Colorado
He believes that open communication is the key to a successful business flow as he oversees design projects including print, video, photography, and internal communications. Prior to joining Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, he worked for Excel Energy, Edge Interactive, Teach.com, and System Technology Associates.
George believes that to grow as a professional, he must take on new challenges—and one presented itself when he was asked to take on video projects at work. “My role in this was as a director, so this required me to do a lot of interaction with people both internal and external to the company. I had to interview many people and help to craft scripts. So I had to jump in with both feet and learn this new craft.” He adds that his career requires a high level of commitment in training, equipment, and software.
George, who in 2004 earned a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Colorado, says that his education provided the fundamentals of design which have translated into multiple roles and responsibilities throughout his career. George is also a military veteran who served in the United States Army from 1986-1988. He describes himself as someone who wears “many hats” at work. “The challenge is keeping all of my skills fresh. In one of my jobs, I learned high end 3D skills, where as in my current job that skill is only needed occasionally, so keeping up and that skill fresh has been a challenge.”
