In 2015, while a junior in high school, Sam Stoke and his family made the move to North Idaho
to be closer to family and to live somewhere that offered new opportunities.
“What I love most about being a part of the Coeur d’Alene area is being able to support small businesses, attend events, and explore what the area has to offer with like-minded people,” he says.
After earning his AAS in graphic design from North Idaho College, Sam dove right into his field, working as an in-house graphic designer for an online locksmith supplier, followed by working as a designer for a screen printing and embroidery shop, where he remained for four years before taking a position as a graphic designer with Like Media in 2022.
As a member of the Like Media design team, he is grateful for the opportunity to be part of a company where he can work on expanding his skill set, collaborate with talented people, and witness his work “turn into tangible things out there in the real world.”
When not designing, Sam enjoys the outdoor opportunities and adventures the area has to offer. You will find him snowboarding during the winter months, and camping and hiking during the warmer seasons. Year-round, he looks forward to time spent with friends, his significant other and family.
