Hello! I’m Christopher Stoney, a marketing content creator with a background in design.

Since 2008, I’ve worked in a multitude of creative industries with a variety of roles. Currently, I’m the Assistant Athletic Director of Digital Media for the UCF Knights in Orlando, Florida. I also freelance with multiple clients in my “spare” time. I write marketing content and campaigns, manage social media plans, and design through a variety of mediums.

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” -Theodore Roosevelt

SKILLS

WEB DESIGN

I’m well-versed with HTML and CSS, plus some jQuery and Java. I prefer to build on WordPress CMS, but I’m also capable with base HTML or Drupal. I prefer to design in Sublime Text, but I first learned design on Adobe Dreamweaver. I’m limited in terms of development, but I’m learning more Java and PHP so I can implement more robust design elements into the sites I craft.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I am extremely proficient with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I love to utilize Adobe Lightroom as a means of post-production to photo-based graphics, especially with my sports designs. I also have a firm understanding of CYMK printing and working with physical print jobs such as posters and brochures. And in the digital world, I love creating motion graphics in the form of GIFs.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Perhaps my first taste of the creative world, I’ve been working with video projects since I was 15 years old. I’m proficient with most forms of ENG cameras, all the way down to DSLR filming. I am confident in my editing capabilities, being proficient with Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple’s Final Cut Pro. I utilize Adobe After Effects in almost everything I do.

MARKETING

Beginning with traditional advertising and now expanding into social media and digital marketing, I’ve worked with numerous clients to create campaigns that accomplish realistic goals. I’ve created plans for tourism agencies, athletic departments, and charities. I prefer to focus on digital-first advertising, to keep analytics, and expand reach through social media campaigns.
