SLANT officially welcomes Connor Lock to the team!
Those of you who visit SLANT HQ often are probably saying, "Um, behind on your blog news much? Connor's been there since July." You're right - Connor started with us in the summer of 2010 as a Slantastic intern while he completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Charleston.
And upon graduating (as Valedictorian - smartypants) he began working with SLANT part time. We keep getting busier and busier (and busier, and busier) and were thrilled to promote Connor to full time status. His title: Artistic Intelligence. What that means to you: Graphic Designer.
Want to get to know Connor? He's energetic, skateboards to work and is an instructor and mentor to teenagers at a local skatepark. He went to high school in Manchester, England and managed not to pick up a British accent. He knows what a proper pint pour is supposed to look like so don't serve him one with too much head... or ELSE. He thinks this video is really funny. He's a BANa believer and his screenname is conman7bst for all sorts of cryptic reasons.
As SLANT's Artistic Intelligence, he has contributed to tons of projects from storyboarding to package designs and logo ideation. And while he knows his way around a computer, he starts his creative process with pencil and paper - the kid can draw!
So as you can tell, we know Connor pretty well by now. We hope you get to know him too - say hi next time you're in the neighborhood!
