I, Nicole M. Bowen have been a Product Graphics Designer at Techtronic Industries (TTi) as well as a Digital Imaging/Design Freelancer in Anderson, SC since December 2011. I graduated from Clemson University ('11), having received a Bachelors of Science degree in Graphic Communications, graduating Cum Lade in my class/#6 in my major, as well as receiving a Cooperative Education certificate. Recently I have started my own Etsy shop and am selling custom designed stationary specializing in Wedding Stationary. During my studies at Clemson University I have completed two full-time internships, worked as a freelance digital imaging specialist for the past 3 years, and worked part-time at a local student-run printing job shop. By working during my college years I was able to gain the relevant work experience as well as an extensive knowledge base for my major and future career. In addition to my classes and working, I also was a 4 year letter winning student-athlete and a two-time ACC Champion in both individual and team categories for Clemson NCAA Women's Rowing. Being part of Clemson’s Rowing Team taught me the mental discipline and time management needed in order to juggle everything as well as excelling in the classroom. In my spare time I eagerly want to learn about new industry trends and photoshop techniques in order to make my work more unique. I also enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible with activities such as hiking, running, kayaking, and playing a variety of sports. Recently I received my AFAA Personal Training Certification and am looking to then certify in CrossFit and compete regularly with CrossFit competitions.

My passion is taking a piece of writing and polishing it into something that serves its purpose in a succinct and beautiful way. I've worked in online education for multiple universities over the past 8 years with experience focused on the design, development, editing, and quality assurance of courses, assessments, and related materials. However, I've also spent time writing copy for several different companies’ websites and text for printed materials (magazines, brochures, flyers, etc.) as part of short-term contracts, I tutor one-on-one and in small groups, and I present on various education topics across the country. I have a bachelor’s degree in English Language (Linguistics) with a minor in Editing and a master’s degree in Instructional Design and Educational Technology. My clients and coworkers have praised me for my ability to understand writers' meaning and preserve their voice in editing, and I find it enjoyable to work with many different types of people. Please see my blog and other samples to get a feel for my writing style. A full resume is available upon request. I’m most familiar with Chicago and APA style, but I’m also comfortable with MLA and AP. I’m proficient working in Microsoft and Adobe programs, and I’m also with comfortable in Google Drive formats.
With a background in instructional design and safety training development, I have voiced training courses as well as commercials and creative business proposals. I have an expressive contralto voice with a neutral American accent, capable of conveying nuanced tones and inflections. My enunciation is clear and my voice very adaptable, suited to anything from storytelling to selling. Outside of voice work, I am a capable writer and editor of stories, copy, and reports. In my spare time I brush up on my design, language skills, and musical abilities, both vocal and on bass guitar.
I've worked with educational technologies for over 8 years, using e-learning software like Articulate and Captivate to be used in LMS courses. The LMS's I've designed in are ANGEL, Blackboard, and Moodle. I've been working exclusively in Moodle for the last 4 years, doing consulting for site implementation and design, course development, instructional design, and some code customizations. My focus recently has been using the knowledge I gained from my master's degree in Instructional Design to develop highly interactive and effective Moodle courses.
