Meet Savy! While she’s not out hunting down Seattle’s best gluten-free beer, racing soapbox cars or shooing kids off her lawn, she’s busy as one of Killer Infographics’ most talented and accomplished senior designers.
Title: Senior Graphic and Interactive Designer
State your job description: I design infographics and create illustrations for use in interactive and motion graphics.
How did you come to work at Killer Infographics?
I was spending most of my day coding but wishing I were illustrating, and one of my best friends worked at Killer—she was getting to illustrate all day. One thing led to another and she recommended me for an open position. My portfolio checked out, the culture was a great fit, and here I am spending 0 hours a week coding, which is nice. What is this “CSS” thing anyways?
What do you enjoy most about working at Killer Infographics?
The thing I enjoy most about Killer is our truly amazing team. Everyone works so hard and I’ve never been anywhere where everyone really looked out for each other the way we do. I’m eternally grateful that my peeps take extra steps to make my day easier, and in return I never mind going out of my way to help someone out. It really is a big family—a big-pun loving family that also loves beer and cat gifs.
What has been your favorite project and why?
We recently had the opportunity to work with Red Bull Music Academy on an exciting new project. The assignment was to visualize the first 2 minutes of 97-minute mix created by ’80s hip-hop legends The Latin Rascals. We chose a solution involving a physical visualization: construction paper cut into many different shapes to represent unique sounds within the intro of the mix. I was extremely proud of my team and myself for the illustrations and concepts that we delivered.
What are some side projects or hobbies you have outside of the office?
Apart from Killer I’m a very dedicated cat mom to my 13 year old Seal Point Himalayan Persian. Affectionately nicknamed, “Smoosh-face”, Bruno definitely makes working from home on sick days more enjoyable.
I’m also passionate about cooking food that tastes like mainstream food, but without mainstream ingredients. I’m really good at having allergies, so I get to be the girl at the party with a plate of lettuce and peanuts (not allergic to peanuts, at least), casting shade on everyone scarfing down tater tots and corn dogs. In my spare time I log my recipes and hope to design and publish my own cookbook someday. Just try making lasagna without soy, cheese, wheat or eggs. Amateurs…
When I’m not busy making allergy-free food, illustrating, or hanging out with Bruno, I’m usually outside hiking, snowboarding, or out adventuring with my husband, Jessie and a small gaggle of my strange but lovely friends.
