Killer Employee Spotlight

When asked about their favorite part of working at our Seattle-based visual communication agency, every member of the team at Killer Visual Strategies (formerly Killer Infographics) generally says the same thing: it’s the people. From infographic and motion graphic designers to content writers, researchers, and project managers, we’re a team of diverse interests and talents. That’s why we often like to feature our team on the blog and give our clients and readers the opportunity to learn a little more about each of them. 

Our creative team is made up of designers, animators, and developers who tackle visual communication designs of all kinds, whether infographic, motion graphic, or interactive. Our visual communication agency also features in-house content editors, marketers, project managers, and leadership all under one roof in Seattle.

Some agencies don’t offer clients the opportunity to work directly with their full project team. Rather, they hire freelancers that work all over the globe and never even meet the clients they’re working for. But the Killer experience includes direct communication with your full project team — designer and all — for every infographic, motion graphic, and visual content project. Check out the articles below to learn a little more about who you’ll be working with.

From Indonesia With Dysentery, Part 3 of 3

Killer_Infographic_Josh_Indonesia

The two-week race was a blur of breakdowns, police encounters, briberies, hospitable Indonesians, collisions, and, above all, adventure. Röta loved to hate us. She broke down every other hour, but we fell in love each time she rose to the occasion, started up, and carried us over mountains, through jungles, and across the country – although, 2,000 km of the race was spent on the back of a truck. The emotions overpowered as we approached…

From Indonesia with Dysentery, Part 2 of 3

Killer_Infographic_Josh_Indonesia_02

Christening our ride was the primary objective. “Rot” is German for “red”; “roto,” Spanish for “broken”. Being the terminally ill, red beauty she was, it took but 30 seconds of discussion to agree on calling her “Röta.” I suppose if we were seeking linguistic accuracy, the name should really have been “Röto,” but Röta is a lady and there’s no denying that. I hold the umlaut’s worth as self-evident. We built her a roof rack,…
