Creative Guru

Creative Guru

I bring a wealth of experience to the task at hand. Adobe Illustrator, PhotoShop, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, QuarkXpress.

And don't forget the basics: Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Publisher.

I'm always learning new stuff, right now I'm taking online classes in Articulate 360 (used to be Articulate Storyline), so I can create interactive online e-courses.

Sometimes I "do" the social media. Sometimes you "do" the social media. Sometimes it's a mentoring thing, and we work together until you are comfortable (and even then I may hover quietly in the background - just in case you need a hand). We work at your pace - until you're ready to remove the training wheels.

Video Design

Video Design

Your photos, video clips, music and text are combined to create professional presentations.

Marketing Videos are shared on social media sites, and are perfectly sized for Facebook covers.

Memory Videos celebrate a special occasion, including end of life memorials.

Kind Words

Adele was very detailed oriented and did a great job on our website she was on time and on budget. Awesome!

Jim Watson,

President & Inspector @ J. Watson Roofing Consulting Inc., Victoria, BC
Adele’s amazing creativity and expertise helped me achieve a beautiful website that I absolutely love! She was always available to answer questions and provide me with the information I needed. I really appreciated her patience and guidance at every phase in the project. I especially love her design of my logo. It was exactly what I wanted. Thank you Adele!

Cassandra Schoeber,

Owner & Coach @ Stronger You, Strength & Movement Coaching, Langley, BC
I have worked with Adele for the past three years on transforming my company from a traditional media advertiser into a social media format. The transition was under scrutiny from the beginning but we managed to move our dollars from the newspaper/radio formula to having a strong social media presence, targeting our specific markets, developing customer relationships and generating new visuality online. We revamped our website, took on various new Social Media accounts and now have a constant presence with our most important market, our customers. All at a small portion of the costs we’ve spent in previous. Adele's direction has been extremely valuable, and I would not hesitate in recommending her for any endeavours she may choose.

Whether it's building or updating websites, social media marketing, a little mentorship to get things started, or custom design work, I enjoy working with and getting to know my many clients throughout British Columbia. Some began as clients and became friends - all the better! I enjoy the process and the interaction. Scroll through the images below, and click for links to their websites or social pages.

Adele LaRiviere

Adele LaRiviere

Who am I?
My background includes writing and editing for newspapers, magazines, and periodicals. I'm a web and graphic designer, with social media marketing, WordPress design experience, and technical support services training.

What is Yodel River?
I am always being asked "Where is Yodel River?" My childhood nickname was Yodel, and not everyone can spell LaRiviere. So Adele LaRiviere is Yodel River.

Where am I?
I live and work in British Columbia's beautiful Fraser Valley. I can work anywhere, actually. While on holiday in Mexico, I assisted a long-time client with a persnickety tech support issue. I've received newsletter updates via text message from a client visiting Hong Kong. And closer to home, my Chilliwack client uses Zoom for our "face-to-face" meetings. TeamViewer comes in handy when I remotely instruct a client in Greenwood while she learns how to best use her new laptop software.

I take on a limited group of clients. Relationships that negate physical distance. Clients are located throughout the province from Greenwood to Victoria - and now - Great Britain. No matter where I live and work I am virtually here for you.
