ABOUT KRIS RISNER
Director of Web Services VIE Media
Co-Founder CNG Creative Network
Graphic Design Board SIBA
Hello, I am Kris Risner, a creator with a passion for web design/development and branding. I completed my BA in Interactive Media and Web Design at Lindenwood after studying photography at the Art Institute of St. Louis.
Currently, I work as the Director of Web Services at VIE Media, where I specialize in designing and building WordPress websites while also managing hosting and website maintenance. With my keen eye for design and deep understanding of web development, I create user-friendly websites that are optimized for both desktop and mobile platforms.
During my four years as a freelance web designer and developer, I gained valuable experience working with diverse clients and projects. Collaborating with a team of freelancers allowed me to develop teamwork and collaboration skills on projects of varying scales and complexity. I used my web design and development expertise to create custom websites, often with complex functionality and e-commerce capabilities, tailored to specific goals. Freelancing also improved my communication and project management skills through close collaboration with clients and teams to ensure their visions were realized in the final product.
I have also co-founded CNG Creative Network which provides creatives across the country with a way to connect and share their experiences. Whether working full time or as a freelancer, the creative field can be daunting.
In addition to my professional work, I’m also an avid content creator, and I love to share my knowledge and expertise with others. That’s why I started my YouTube channel, where I post tutorials on web design and branding, along with other helpful tips and advice for fellow creatives.
