Hi.

My name is Joshua Rizzo and I'm interested in the Graphic Designer position at Social Made Simple

Let me show you why I am a great fit for this role.

My number one goal when starting We Grow the Co (WGTC) was to create a space for designers and creatives to develop their skills. I have great working relationships with photographers, designers, and other creatives throughout the Central Texas area. In the process, decision making and project management were two skills I've had the opportunity to develop.

I run a creative agency in Waco, Texas.

The Jaunty Jungle was a collaboration between my business partner, me, and a contractor, making Cassie's (client) vision a reality.

I've led and organized teams to deliver on a vision.

I've trained contractors and interns on our team at WGTC and at Baylor's Career and Professional Development office to deliver websites, brand identities and social media content strategies for our clients. Through these experiences, I was able to develop communication and leadership skills.

I know how to take a brand and expand it through a variety of media.

Vitek's (original brand identity by Deux South) joined our client list in 2019, and I was able to carry their brand identity into social media, menus, business cards, post cards, and more.
