Many of our long-time clients and website perusers will recognize this familiar face and name. But we’re thrilled to announce that we and he have finally made it official. Master visual storyteller, Eric Mueller, is now a full time Story Stick Marketing employee and newly named Design Director.
Over the years, Eric’s career included positions as a product designer, illustrator, post-secondary design educator, animator, UX designer, and creative director at his own design firm. As Story Stick’s lead illustrator and visualizer for the past 8 years, Eric has created video graphics, infographics, interactive media, data visualization, storyboards, and illustrations that have helped our clients connect with their audiences in the most memorable ways possible.
“Imagery has been an effective way to communicate abstract and concrete ideas since humans painted the walls of their caves,” says Eric. “Today, visualization is a six-syllable word for using any technique to create images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. My mission is to provide imagery that not only conveys information easily and well, but also stirs the imagination.”
In this age of social and online media, we know three things: First, our clients are always looking for more show, less tell. Second, a picture is worth 1,000 clicks. Third, Eric is the right mix of passion, intelligence, talent, and personal commitment to help Story Stick deliver the first two.
