You know how to tell if someone’s a right-brainer? They’re the ones who can’t keep straight which hemisphere of the brain is devoted to which set of skills. How do I know this? Well, let’s just say that before I wrote this post I had to look it up.
I have, at times, described ours as an entire industry run by A.D.D. folks. There’s a reason it seems that way. The most artistic folks we’ve had the pleasure of working with – the graphic designers, art directors, illustrators, etc. – have exercised the part of their brain associated with visual, creative, imaginative, inductive thinking for so long, the more logical hemisphere – the one devoted to planning, and process – has atrophied. And many of the best web developers we’ve worked with are extremely thoughtful, logical people – folks who’ve long over-exercised their left brains.
But, there is a beast out there. The beast is crafty and creative, logically artistic, linearly non-linear. This beast is equally at home in either half of his or her skull. The beast of which I speak is the Graphic-Designer-Who-Knows-How-To-Do-Front-End-Website-Work. You may also know this beast as the Front-End-Web-Developer-Who-Has-A-Passion-For-Graphic-Design. Regardless of what you call it, the beast is exceedingly rare. Some say it’s the mythical unicorn.
We’re unicorn hunting. If you’ve read this far, and if you think you’re a unicorn, and if you’re interested in working in a place that values passion; intelligent and exquisite design; and smart strategic storytelling – ping us. We’d like to see what you’ve got.
