There’s nothing like going to check out a website and getting taken back by its ‘WOW’ factor. While having the best product on the market will always be our #1 priority, it certainly doesn’t hurt when it looks OH SO GOOD!
Back in the day, WhatRunsWhere looked a little rough around the edges.
Almost four years later our brand is looking sleeker and smarter than ever, thanks to our amazing team.
We interviewed one of the masterminds behind the scenes. Meet our UX/UI Designer, Shane Turner…
1. First things first, tell us a little bit about what you do here at WRW?
I work on the front-end design of our website as well as our product design. I also produce all our branded materials, tradeshow displays, brochures, reports, etc.
2. When you’re not in the WRW office, what are some of your favorite thing to do?
I love playing drums (www.waterbodies.ca), jogging, writing songs, painting and drawing, taking baths and eating cookies.
3. Name one of your life’s greatest accomplishments (so far)…
Gus Henry Turner, my 4 year old son. He’s funnier and more handsome than I am. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true.
4. Who is your mentor and why?
My dad, Stuart Turner, he has shown me how to be a perfect father. He’s always been supportive of anything I did. He let me have a drum kit when I was 10, I don’t even think he wore earplugs to drown out the horrible sound of me learning how to play.
There probably isn’t a job he hasn’t had; he’s been in the navy, a personal trainer, bus driver, cabinetmaker, private investigator, and Police Officer. In addition to all of that, he’s the only person I know that can beat me at arm wrestling.
5. What is some advice you would give to anyone who wanted to follow your career footsteps?
Do great work and create something everyday. If you are passionate about what you do and you do great work then people will notice.
6. What is your favourite part about working at WRW?
We have a great office space complete with all necessary items, such as a ping pong table, basketball net, and Tassimo with plenty of coffee.
7. If you weren’t a UX/UI Designer, you would be a full-time ______________________.
Artist. If I weren’t creating designs on a computer I’d be an artist.
