Contract Graphic and Web Designer | Stride Management
2019 - Present
I’ve been doing some odd freelance work back at Stride Management helping pick up the slack as they were a bit overwhelmed. Was tasked with creating a logo and website for the new Trucks & Bucks Lottery as well as the 2020 version of the Red Deer Hospitals Lottery. Also helped set up the backbone and system in which to allow the creatives to build all new websites upon the WordPress platform making small edits easier for non-developers. Still do some work for them when needed.
