“The art department took our idea and created exactly what we were looking for.
The printing looks great and the tanks are so soft.” – Courtlyn
What does your work space look like?
Organized, laced with chaos and infused with a healthy heaping of geekiness.
What has been one of your proudest moments working at Creative and why?
Possibly a year or so ago when there was a massive undertaking with a client that usually gave us a set logo to work with. I began doing like 8 different designs in a short turn-around which I more or less had license to flex my creative wings a little. And to my surprise, they liked almost all of them on the first turn-out. I was expecting them to pick a few, but not all of them.
What are a couple words of advice to give someone just starting out in your profession?
I’ll pass on what my professors told me: Do not get attached to your work. Ultimately, it’s driven by your clients tastes, not yours, so you have to learn to take (productive) criticism. And in the same vein, don’t get cocky, don’t get stuck in doing things only one way and end up closing yourself off to other ideas and thoughts, other POVs. You’re choking your creativity. The best ones are the ones always learning.
