Q: As a Boxcar Creative insider, what trends do you see amongst the group? Any unique in-office habits?

It’s not a trend, per say, but I think everyone at Boxcar works on finding ways to improve and expand their craft. It’s awesome to see our project manager learning HTML and CSS (shout out, Sean)!

Q: What’s your vision for the world of digital communications? How does Boxcar Creative align with that vision?

A: My vision for digital communications is to continue delivering useful information in unique and engaging ways. Boxcar has a great team with many skill sets and the ability to adapt to whatever challenges we come across.

Q: Who are you outside of Boxcar Creative?

A: I have a wonderful wife and two boys. Most my time is spent avoiding the takedown with one child on my back and another hanging on my leg, ha!

I enjoy doing things outdoors. I like camping, fishing, working out, and tending to my ever growing number of animals. You can also catch me playing some pickup basketball on the weekends!

Q: What has been your favorite Boxcar Creative project? Why?

A: I can’t say I have one favorite. I enjoyed designing and working on Cool River Cafe. Sionna logo development was a fun project. Not only did we illustrate the logo, but we animated it as well. I think it turned out great!

Q: Where do you look for inspiration?

A: Oh man, inspiration is everywhere! Nature, film, music, magazines, online, the boxcar team – the list could go on! For web design, I visit sites like Behance and CSS Design Awards.

Q: What part of your role at Boxcar Creative are you most passionate about? Why?

A: I can narrow it down to three things – Design, user interaction, and animation. I enjoy the process of creating something and then having it “come to life” through user interaction/transitions and animation.

Q: What is the most rewarding part of working with a client?

A: Simply helping them with their needs. There is great satisfaction completing a project knowing that you have helped tell their story or improved their process!

Q: What advice would you offer a young professional just starting in the industry? Is there something that you wish someone had told you?

A: Constantly be learning. Technology is always changing and you need to have an idea of what’s going on. Find ways to keep inspired. Surround yourself with those who share your interests and are motivated.
