Senior Visual Experience Designer
Qmate since 1997-ish
How do you stay sharp?
I tend to sharpen up by checking out the creative accomplishments of others. Online communities allow access to tons of current work and amazing portfolios across multiple creative fields. It’s inspiring and always helps me stay excited about design.
Improving and expanding my skill set is also key to staying sharp. Video tutorials and blogs are an invaluable resource. Dabbling in related creative disciplines like photography and video help expand my skill set as well.
I also enjoy coffee.
What quality do you most value in your teammates?
I value my Quarry teammate’s ability to keep their cool. Hurling a fistful of papers or blowing steam out of your ears almost never helps. The low rate of panic attacks per capita at Quarry can most likely be attributed to the collective talent, experience and mutual respect found across the entire team.
Would you rather go into outer space or to the depths of the ocean? Why?
Is there a third option available? I would like more details before answering this one. Are they return trips?
