On Monday, March 8th I started work for Sore Thumb Inc., a digital marketing agency based out of Toronto.
I am so stoked to be working in this small-scale agency doing some very exciting design projects. So far, I've worked on designing websites from scratch, creating digital marketing ads, and laying out concepts for short animation videos. I love that there's a high variety of work and lots of creativity involved.
My title is "Lead Project Manager and Graphic Designer" and I'm starting out working just 20 hours a week (YAY!). It's a permanent position and hours will likely increase over the next year or so, but for now, I am very happy to still have lots of time to ski, play tennis, bask in the sun, and keep up some of my freelance clients.
My schedule is Monday-Thursday, 8 am to 1 pm. So every weekend is a long weekend and I still have lots of daylight when I'm finished.
Before all you Toronto folks ask: no this doesn't mean I'm moving back to Toronto any time soon! Sorry...
I'll keep you updated on how it's all going, but for now, I couldn't be happier with this new chapter.
My home "office" set-up, including the laptop stand I built, very shabby but it does the job (and only cost $5 in materials)!
