Hello! My name is Justin Baar, I am a graphic designer, ecommerce, marketing, digital media, social media professional currently working out of Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. I graduated with a degree in Painting and Printmaking from San Diego State University in 2007. I have pursued design since taking a desktop publishing class in 1995 where I was first introduced to Photoshop and Illustrator.
I am lucky to have had the pleasure of working on a wide array of projects for a wide array of clients. I have designed websites, I have designed billboards, I have designed catalogs, and everything else in between. I had the great fortune to work at a print shop and learn the ins and outs of printing.
I am currently working in a very busy position as Senior Ecommerce and Digital Media Specialist at Buck Knives. I get to do all things digital for the company, including: all digital graphic design, manage our ecommerce site, our social media, strategize and implement email marketing campaigns, dial in our search engine optimization, shoot some photos and video, then edit away, and write copy for new campaigns for our SEM initiatives. And when I find the time, I design some of our apparel, help create web exclusive products, drive new growth, and even manage our inventory. Needless to say, I have a lot of windows open at all times on my computer.
Feel free to hit me up if you have a cool opportunity, freelance project, questions, or just to say hi.
