HearSay with Joey

By April 5, 2022Staff

Joey is an expert in all things video and motion graphics. When a client comes to HS looking to make an impact on a visual platform, it’s up to Joey to bring their vision to life and exceed their expectations.

But how exactly does Joey work on visual storytelling, and what is his creative process like? To find out, we asked him a few questions to dig deeper into all things video.

What is a day in the life of Joey Schultz like?

Snooze bar. Snooze bar. Snooze bar. Get dressed. Go to the office. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Get to work. Typically, after work I will take my dog, Bart, and maybe my cat, Harai, for a walk or an adventure. Or, I go to Judo class on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Later in the night, I generally work on something or hang out with my wife, rather than watching TV (I do watch a bit of TV though). I’m rewatching Dexter at the moment. Right now, I am working on a second strategy guide for the game Hive. I usually call it a night around 10:30.

How does a video help a client?

Moving pictures are better than regular pictures.

I think what video does for a client is help them communicate with their would be customers. Video can provide information that is useful for a client’s customers in a tricky way–people don’t like to read or take time to do anything, so a video is a nice way to entice someone into learning the desired info. They won’t read, but they may watch/listen.

What do you love about making motion graphics?

Well, the feeling about making something that is “right” and helpful, is a good one. But really, after I get to make motion graphics, design work, copy editing, or anything similar for clients, I get to use my skills to create what I want for myself. For example, I want to produce a strategy guide… So I do it.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Getting paid!!!!!!!!!

But also, having some sort of responsibility weighs well on a fella’s livelihood…and knowing that some clients and coworkers are truly grateful for what I can produce.

If you were a tile from Hive, which one would you be?

I’d be a new piece called insecticide. Like rock, paper, scissors, but insecticide always wins.

HearSay with Kewley and Bart, HS Dog Contributors

We love to talk to our HS family about what they bring to the workplace. And since our dogs are like family, too, we thought HearSay should spend a little time talking to our couple favorite four-legged friends. So Kewley, you’ve been a regular at HS for a long time. What keeps you coming back? I’m a rare breed that I LOVE to be in meetings. And if that meeting is in the Pomp Room with a few dropped snack crumbs, all the better. What’s a typical workday look like for you? Supervising comes very naturally to me. When my…

HearSay with Jordan – Graphic Designer

To spend any time with talented HS designer Jordan Biehn is to recognize he is a man who primarily lets his work do the talking. And though of fewer words, this “stand up” guy took the time to expand on his many talents and interests. When did you first consider a career in design? I was a junior in high school and my baseball coach also taught our art class. I began drawing and he introduced me to Photoshop where I started designing posters and flyers for our school. If you had a design superpower, what would it be?  Endless…
