I am an interactive art director that's in it for the game.
After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Creative sequence, I have found a level of sophistication in my design skills that surpasses what I learned in school. In addition to my design skills maturing, my ability to code and animate, essential for web design and banner ad creation, have reached a level that is just shy of right. Now, I'm not saying I'm perfect and that I know everything, just that I can do more than what I used to be able to and definitely more than a good portion of my fellow classmates. With a little help from my friend, the search engine, and problem-solving mechanics, I can create the right mix of design and functionality you desire.
So what are you waiting for? Ask me what I can do.
You see, it all started one day at my quant internship where one of the account managers was too lazy to say either of my names: "Stephanie" (seeing as it is three syllables) and "Thurber" (yup, two syllables was too hard as well). So, she took on the name "thurbs." Why she added the "s" is anyone's guess.
From there, my creative director thought it was catchy, and after your boss starts using it, you start using it. It spread like wildfire accross the creative clan and before I knew, "Stephanie" was just not an option.
My boss under the creative director got so attached to it, he started imagining it as a brand. He told me to go buy thurb.com until we realized it was some guy's blog about thurb being an alien dance or something like that.
Anyway, so it came to this: the name is thurb. It seems quite fitting. A little attitude, a little bit of me, makes it the right combination. So why don't you get to know me more?
