This is the first installment of a new monthly feature where we take a closer look at one of the Stacks' team members. This month, we are proud to feature Jeremy Whiteford, Art Director for Stacks. 

Jeremy has been part of the Stacks team for over two years and in that time has become an employee with drive and passion that is unmatched within the organization. His commitment to delivering world-class design and artistic direction sees him stand out not only amongst his peers but in the industry that is software development.

One of Jeremy's highlights for 2017 was the rebranding of Stacks. From a new and improved icon to a bolder set of colors, Jeremy has helped put Stacks on the map when it comes to our brand.
