Reading Muhlenberg Career & Technology Center is a Steppingstone to Success
My name is Jennifer Adames, and I work at R.M. Palmer Company in West Reading, Pa where I have been a graphic designer for the last 16 years. My job consists of creating packaging for chocolate novelties. I design candy boxes, films, and foils for every holiday season.
I graduated from the Advertising Design/Commercial Art (ADC) class at RMCTC in 2001. After that, I attended Lehigh Valley College in 2003 where I earned an Associate Degree in Graphic Design.
My ADC instructor, Mr. Simons, was always there for me, before and after I graduated, to lend a helping hand. I currently go back to RMCTC twice a year to serve on their Occupational Advisory Committee.
I also started my own business, J. Adames Designs & Photography, LLC four years ago. I mostly photograph families and events while I continue to design Packaging for Palmer and do my own freelance work.
RMCTC was a huge steppingstone for me where I was taught a lot of the tools I needed to succeed in the workforce. Want to learn of other projects that I’m working on? In this very same Palo edition, read about a project I’m working with called Stranger Sessions.
