In our latest installment of C4D Staffer Spotlight, we’d like to introduce you to a vital member of our design team, Nathan Billman. He consistently delivers outstanding design concepts for both client and internal C4D projects, bringing content marketing to life with compelling visuals in everything from e-books and white papers to complex interactive infographics and video.
Enjoy some fun facts about him in this month’s Q&A:
What current trend is inspiring you right now?
The awareness of the value of design — whether it’s how to translate your metrics into compelling data visualization or the branding continuity from your custom assessment to emailed results — has brought design to forefront of discussions and a true differentiator in brands today.
What’s one of your favorite projects you’ve worked on and why?
Any interactive or motion graphics projects has really pushed me to think more critically and creatively about how the user is interacting, both actively and passively, with the content being shared.
What’s the most important or interesting thing you’ve learned since joining C4D?
Seeing the inside “trade secrets” of the process, the complexity and deliberate journey a campaign nurture can take a buyer through has been fascinating.
What city do you live in, and what’s great about it?
Coopersburg is not really a city, but I love that it’s a “burg” where I can walk to the grocery store or local ice cream shop (or the diner that knows me by name!) but am also in between the Philadelphia Zoo and NYC Broadway.
What inspires you?
My family… there’s nothing more important than that.
Tell us something interesting you’ve done. My wife and I had a surprise wedding. That’s right, no one knew about it. My wife and I put together everything from the setup to the wedding cake, invited a small group of close family for an “engagement party” and, surprise, got married! To this day, my mom still doesn’t find it funny.
