Daniel Vining

I am a multimedia designer, journalist, photographer, & fabricator.

Designer

Topography and brand design has been a passion of mine my entire life.  I've drawn signs and created logos since I was a small child.  I've been designing logos for over a decade, mostly geared around motorsports.  I've created designs for leagues, series, events, teams, sponsors and companies.

I have had the pleasure of working with clients ranging from established online sim-racing leagues to race tracks and racers of all types in-between.

Journalist 

My journalism career began in high school.  After my first two years of journalism study,  I was promoted to my high school newspaper's Editor-In-Chief, a title not normally received by a Junior classmen.  Congruently, I was promoted to the Public Affairs Officer for the school's Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps unit.

In 2003 I began my first website, TheSpeedzine.com.  There, I covered news and opinion from around the motorsports world.

In 2011, I was hired and served as a news correspondent for Speed51.com, another well established motorsports news publication.

Over the course of the past five years, I have been a part of several online communities centered around the motorsports industry utilizing social media as the publication medium.  Through this, I've developed strong social marketing skills and presence among a loyal following.

Photographer

Photography is another passion that has followed me through all the various stages of my creative career.  This passion began in high school, where after receiving very high marks in photography classes, I was appointed the high school yearbook's Senior Photography Editor.

In 2005, I began shooting photos for the racing community at NODAK Speedway in Minot, North Dakota and Dacotah Speedway in Bismark, North Dakota.

In 2011, I was hired and served as a photo journalist for the popular motorsports website, Speed51.com.  There, I shot photos of various motorsports events across the country including the prestigious Snowball Derby in Pensacola, Florida. 

Fabricator

Since 2004, I have been a professionally trained and skilled fabricator in the aviation industry.  My aviation fabrication career began in the U.S. Air Force, with stints at various aviation companies for over a decade.  See more details, including my aviation resume' here.
