Ebook Developer and Producer
Over 7 years experience in Project Management, Art Direction, Ebook Development, Publishing and various Multimedia and Design projects.
My services range from early stages of development including idea generation, collaborative brainstorming, mind mapping and wireframing to production phases like ebook development for various platforms (iBooks, ePub, mobi), website development, game development, video and animation project management.
One of my main strengths is flexibility - I can offer a wide range of services which I can do by myself or I[ can develop and oversee the whole process outsourced to other people.
The area I shine in is art directing and idea generation - the skills I developed through the years in working with various multimedia and design projects, as well as studying art history and theory in the Academy of Fine Arts in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Before working in e-publishing, for 4 years I have been working as a project manager in a multimedia development company, which specialised in end to end design and production of interactive museum exhibitions. The work process included a wide variety of multi-disciplinary fields, that were connected into a single workflow, which I helped to develop. At the start my fields were very broad and included:
- generating idea for the content and managing the flow (content coordinator)
- managing the development of visual style of the whole exhibition while working with graphics designers (art director)
- managing the IT development of the exhibition - multimedia computer terminals, interactive installations, museum websites while working with programmers (Web/IT project manager)
- managing the whole physical production process of museum exhibition while working with construction companies (production manager).
During the years i have gained knowledge and experience in managing a wide range of multimedia, design and IT fields. Later on i focused my work in the company mainly on idea generation and IT management.
Through the years I gathered experience in working with a wide range of software and technologies for various purposes. With some I am more skilled than with others, but overall I know them enough to successfully employ people that are experts at them.
