Addison Foote – Featured Alumni of November 2015
Addison Foote ('13) was born in St. George, Utah where he grew up loving the sun, red dirt, and the Utah Jazz. He attended Dixie State University from 2006-2013 and graduated from Dixie State with a bachelor of arts degree in Computer Information Technology with an emphasis in Visual Technologies. He also served an LDS Mission in Frankfurt, Germany during that time from 2007-2009.
He always loved art and playing sports growing up particularly basketball and skimboarding. He became sponsored by DB Skimboards in 2008 and eventually became president of the DSU Skimboarding Club. He later had a knee injury in 2011 that caused him to spend less time skimboarding and playing sports, so he had a lot of free time that he spent focusing on art and design. It was a blessing in disguise.
From school, he learned web development skills he needed to get a job with Sony Artists, The Piano Guys as their website administrator immediately after he graduated. He also does freelance design work for clients such as the NBA and WNBA. Here are some of the places his work has been featured:
