NAME AND TITLE

Jacob Burr -- Junior Web Designer

MY TYPICAL WORKDAY

Get in at 8. Coffee. Talk to Joe. Coffee. Put on my nude colored glove for thumb support and pop open Illustrator. Start making wireframes. Attend a meeting or two and then talk with dev about previously mentioned wireframes.

HOW I CHOSE MY CAREER PATH

It seemed ~artsy~ and I really like computers so it was the perfect combo for me. 

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT ASCEDIA

Deciding between perks like having “Beer:30” on Fridays, annual rooftop cookouts and getting involved in community events like the Fight for Air Climb at the US Bank building... it's way too hard to choose. Actually... looking back at what I just said, we have a lot of fun here and I think that’s my #1 favorite thing about working at Ascedia.
