Newspaper House is a newspaper and commercial print company based in Kilmore. Their distribution covers a geographical area from Seymour/Nagambie to Doreen/Mernda and across to Romsey/Lancefield. Newspaper House have been producing newspapers in the local area for 140 years, and currently print 17,000 papers each week as well as having a thriving commercial print business. My main duties involve producing creative and effective artwork for five newspaper mastheads and commercial printing services and completing commercial tasks from quoting and artwork through to finishing (printing, trimming, stapling, delivery etc.)
I am currently employed at BWS under the Woolworths Group banner as a liquor supervisor. As a supervisor, it is my job to manage the day to day operations of the store, manage stock and give customers an authentic customer experience. From time to time I design, produce and implement various Point-of-Sale advertising and signage around the store to help customers find what they're looking for and to make the store look professional.
I started my freelance work in 2010 as 'Zak Bowen Design & Photography'? and have worked for many clients around the world including MDC MoveDanceCo, School of Skills Basketball, Project Underdog Rescue, Creative Prime, Mill Park Secondary College and The Lakes South Morang P-9 School, just to name a few. In June 2015, I started working as 'Zak Bowen Creative'.
Zalca Enterprises was a graphic design, web development and digital production partnership founded in 2011 by my friend Liam Philp and myself. The partnership was started in a school classroom as LakOfSkill Enterprises when we decided to pull all of our existing design projects and manage them under one brand. Zalca ceased operations in late 2014.
It was a requirement in my school curriculum to do work integrated learning. I chose to do my WIL at SJB Architecture because I had a passion for architecture and design and wanted to learn more about working in a creative, collaborative studio. My duties included assisting other architects with their designs, designing my own buildings based on instructions set out in a design brief, choosing colours, colour schemes, textures and materials to use in buildings and creating colour palettes and themes to create different experiences, feelings and emotions for different spaces.
