Lisa Morris Joins R&M’s Marketing Group
Lisa Morris recently joined R&M Consultants as a Graphic Designer in the firm’s Marketing Group. Morris will be responsible for providing print and web/interactive graphic communications in support of R&M’s marketing, communications, and project initiatives.
“I really like that Lisa has prior industry experience. It allowed her to hit the ground running at R&M.,” says R&M’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Andrea Story. “In the short time she has been with our team, she has made a significant impact and really helped to elevate our marketing materials.”
Morris is an imaginative and solution-focused graphic designer with nineteen years of professional design experience in Alaska, with fifteen of those years spent serving the A/E/C industry. She has provided graphic design services to engineering firms, commercial construction companies, project management firms, and non-profits. Morris’ skills include corporate and project branding, visual identities, print and digital collateral design, report design and layout, infographics, historical displays, copywriting, and editing. She has a proven ability to efficiently execute simple or complex ideas in graphic form and enjoys collaborating on projects from concept to completion. Morris is also skilled in use of the Adobe Creative Suite.
“R&M appealed to me because of their reputation of being dedicated to the success and wellbeing of its employees,” says Morris. “The firm has an impressive handle on delivering a high standard of service while maintaining a healthy work/life balance and I’m excited to be a part of that.”
Since joining the firm, Morris has taken the lead on designing several marketing pieces for in-house and external resources. This includes proposal graphics, recruitment collateral, digital graphics, company icons, and other company collateral pieces.
“With the current need to adapt and shift on every level, I look forward to the small accomplishments that keep our firm strong and successful, like finding creative solutions to a productive rhythm and routine,” says Morris Lisa. “Of course, I’m also looking forward to connecting with the R&M family over pizza and a beer.”
Morris has a bachelor’s in journalism and mass communications from the University of Oregon. She volunteers with her son’s competitive/travel soccer team and has spent a lot of time managing the team over the last several years. Outside of work, Morris can usually be found outside somewhere—hiking and running Alaska’s mountain trails, camping with her family, skiing, or gardening. If she must be indoors, she enjoys spending her time cooking, reading, or writing.
