What's your role at Sharkk?
I am the content developer at Sharkk which means I mainly design packaging and manuals for all Sharkk products.
What were you doing before joining the Sharkk team?
Before joining Sharkk, I was a graphic designer for an international calling company.
What does a typical work day look like for you?
Pretty much package design, typesetting product manuals and designing the layouts for our Amazon product pages along with Sharkk.com's content. Oh, I'm also not the most tech savvy person, so I do a lot of product research.
As a technical graphic designer, what would you say are your favorite applications and why?
Hands down Adobe Illustrator is my favorite. The general rule of thumb when designing is that you use Photoshop to edit pictures, Indesign for typesetting and Illustrator for line drawing/logos. since I started at Sharkk, I've learned some typesetting (and a little photo-editing via Photoshop) capabilities/functions that can be done in Illustrator... which I didn't know about till now. Illustrator is a very powerful tool and it's made me look at it a whole different way now.
What attracted you to work at Sharkk?
When I'm not designing, I really like to write (poetry, if you want to call it that). I liked to design, but the writing aspect of this role is what really drew me in.
Oh! What do you like to write about?
I write about everything, but "resilience" tends to be the underlying theme in most.
What is your dream in life?
I've ben through quite a lot in my short amount of time -- now I just want to be happy and take care of my family. Oh and I'd also like to travel!
What's your favorite quote right now?
"If you're always comfortable, you're not growing."
When you're not working, where can you usually be found?
If I'm not somewhere quiet drawing or writing, I'm usually hanging out with my wife and step-daughter. Or with friends and family, pretty much.
