ACCEL Panel Video

how does it work?

Background My company needed a video to announce our new ACCEL Panel Program product line that was coming out. These products were carving out a new niche in the space, plus they were available for three of our brands. This meant we needed a video with its own branding that would work to use for […]

Facility Tour Videos

Background I created these facility tour videos to help our employees and customers learn about some of our growing list of facilities. As SJE continues to grow and acquire businesses, we have lots of facilities across the US and China with different specialties and capabilities. We were also limited on travel and guests during the […]

New Employee Video

Background My employer, SJE, needed a new employee video for new hires to watch before their first day. We wanted to highlight the benefits of working at an employee-owned company, plus make people feel excited about meeting their new coworkers. I think the end result meets all those goals, plus it’s probably my favorite video […]

Propel DL Website

I designed and manage the website for Polar Fest, Detroit Lakes’ winter festival (in addition to helping with their social media). The organization that does Polar Fest wanted a website for their org, called Propel DL. I built them a new website on their existing Squarespace account. These are the only websites I’ve ever built/managed […]

OEC Website Redesign

My latest website redesign is from another company my employer recently acquired, Ohio Electric Control (OEC). Their previous site lacked substantial information and was built by an agency on their proprietary CMS, so it wasn’t easy to update. Since we need pretty frequent updates and have in-house capacity to maintain our own websites, we decided […]

Infographics

I’ve been working on creating some infographics for my employer (SJE Rhombus). They’re a great project because they’re mostly self-directed and I don’t have to find anyone to star in them (like for videos or photos). Here are my favorite that I’ve made so far! The first is a handy chart so customers can quickly […]

I’m excited to finally be able to share my latest web design project! My employer SJE acquired L. W. Allen in the summer of 2021, and I was tasked with updating their website. The old website was broken, outdated, and full of security holes. It was majorly in need of a rehaul, on the front […]

Summer Hiring Ad Campaign

I am pretty proud of this summer hiring ad campaign! It’s been a tough time for hiring lately, and my company is feeling that strain. We’re located in a rural area where hiring before the pandemic was hard enough. I’ve been working with our HR team to come up with some creative advertising to attract […]

Open Enrollment Poster (SJE)

coming soon open enrollment

I created this fun poster for my employer to share news about some changes to our benefits. I wanted to share this important but sometimes dry information in a fun, eye-catching way. I hand-drew the background in Procreate on my iPad. I did the design in Illustrator.

SJE PCB Site

This is a website that I created for my work, SJE Inc. We have a division that creates custom printed circuit boards (SJE PCB) and we wanted to create a separate website for it. I got to design this new site from scratch using my favorite method for quick site creation. I purchased the domain […]
