Each week at Brooks Bell, we have a short meeting Friday morning with the entire team. During the meeting we get updates on tests and the company, and award a “Star of the Week.”
This week, our Star is interactive designer, Lou Pascucci. Recently, Lou has taken on a lot of projects and has a lot going on. He always keeps creativity top of mind, and presents great new ideas. Congratulations Lou!
What led you to have a passion for design and UX?
I think it was a mixture of things. For one, my family always encouraged me to be creative. When I was little I used to draw all the time (mostly corny little comics that I’d pass to my friends in class to make them laugh), but in college I started teaching myself photoshop and illustrator and realized I could really create everything right there on my computer. As a communication and marketing major, I started becoming very interested in how to connect and communicate with people using design. In the end, it has really been a way to bring together my passion for learning more about the human psyche and my desire to be creative.
What are you reading?
Collapse by Jared Diamond. Super interesting non-fiction on a study of why societies choose to succeed or fail.
Can you provide any pointers to make Nerf guns shoot farther?
I’ve tried everything. My gun is just weak. If you want to pull off a cross-office nerf-assassination you’ll need to steal JJ’s Nerf Rifle “The Retaliator.” That thing packs some power.
The Brooks Bell Star of the Week is a team member who has gone above and beyond typical expectations during the week. The award is designed to empower our team and ensure everyone’s hard work is appreciated and recognized.
The winner receives a large trophy they get to keep for the entire week, fully equipped with extra Nerf darts (extra protection for those impromptu Nerf wars). They also get the honor of selecting the following week’s winner.
Sound like fun? Check to see if we’re hiring.
