GRAPHIC DESIGNER, OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST,
DOG MOM & MARKETING NERD

 
 

WHO AM I

My name is Deprise Hutton and I am a 24 year old graphic designer currently based out of Fort McMurray, Alberta.

I have a slight obsession with all things marketing, social media, design, and...dogs.

 

WHAT ARE MY PASSIONS

When I am working, I am always trying to bring fresh ideas to the table. I feel most happy being able to combine design and marketing to create a strategic outcome. Whether it is creating a marketing campaign for new fitness programs and then designing the deliverables, or managing MacDonald Island Park's Instagram account, I am passionate about the process and thoroughly enjoy being able to learn new things along the way.

When I am not working, you can find me pushing my personal limits, whether it is taking up mountain biking, skiing, surfing, exploring the outdoors with my pup, or taking an online course.

 

EDUCATION

I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Design Degree, with a major in Business & Marketing in May 2016. Before that I also obtained a Visual Art & Design Diploma from Keyano College. Throughout my five years of University education I was able to obtain three internships which allowed me to gain work experience and learn from my team. It also allowed me to get a job right after graduation!

Since my U of A graduation I have been taking online courses, from the Hootesuite Social Media course to the Hubspot Inbound Marketing course.
