Behind the Scenes: The New Guy
Once in a while — but not too often, mind you — I have to flesh out a marvelous idea of sorts. I tell myself this is going to be the most amazing “insert whatever here”. This time around it’s not just gonna be an amazing blog, but it’s going to be an amazing blog about me being the infamous “new jack”. No, not the Urban Dictionary definition; the term defining a buffoonish rapper. I’m not that great with my words. No, I’m the new kid on the block, the new guy in the design world known as eLuxurySupply.
So, lets begin:
I’ve heard some say that new jobs are like shoes. The longer you have had them, the more comfortable they become. Well, when I came across this particular pair of shoes, I knew I had found the pair of shoes that had almost been made specifically for me. In my mind, this pair of shoes was what I have been looking for — a custom made pair with all the bells and whistles.
“Sean, what’s so great about this job?” you might ask. Well, I’ll tell you.
Along with Alex (my mentor and partner in crime), I tend to create a lot of the graphics on the eLuxurySupply website. I take the day-to-day ideas and beliefs that the company thrives on, and turn them into creative visual representations for our customers. The reason I enjoy my position so much is because I get to experience every new idea we have, come to life. I’m there a lot of the times when we want to start something new, something fresh and fun for our customers, and I’m there when that idea needs to be displayed for our eLuxurySupply family. I get to enjoy the fact that I just experienced that idea only being casually talk about 10 minutes ago, and now I get the opportunity to turn it into something for our customers to experience.
When I’m not translating our ideas on to webpages or emails, I’m creating print graphics. This aspect of my job is probably my favorite. I feel I do my best work when I get to create something physical. Something I can keep and send to others. I am excited to say that I we will be creating a product catalog for our customers very soon. Something that shows everyone what we here at eLuxurySupply are all about, our products.
One thing that I wish I could have been apart of was the beginning of this company. I do enjoy the stories of how the company started in a garage with only a few orders a day. Unfortunately, I didn't get to experience that or day one at eLuxurySupply, but I do get a taste of it every time I come to work, and that is what I enjoy the most.
