I have an exciting announcement: I’m joining the design team at BSTRO. BSTRO is a digital agency in Gastown Vancouver doing design and digital marketing (among many other exciting things). As well as Vancouver they have offices in New York and San Francisco.
I couldn’t think of anyone more appropriate than Alyssa Edwards to help deliver this news:
The BSTRO team refers to team members as ‘Beasts’. I’ll be a BSTRO Beast starting November 28, 2016.
I’ve known of BSTRO for many years after admiring their work with the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. They’ve recently released a fun campaign: JusTRUit a play on the unsettling US election – check it out for a laugh. BSTRO is expanding the Vancouver team, and I am ecstatic to be a part of these steps.
I’ve had a brilliant two years with Forge and Smith and I wish the entire team the very best (past, present and future)! I’ve learned an incredible amount and developed my skills during my time there – as well as made many close friends. Forge and Smith will always have a special place in my heart.
It’s on to new beginnings and challenges for me! Pam Berg (also formerly of Forge and Smith) has been at BSTRO for a few months now. She is an unstoppable digital marketing and social media Beast. I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with her again.
