Where is he now?
After College Pro, he took a job with the United Center doing work for the Chicago Blackhawks as a graphic designer, and did a lot of freelance work. “Being a freelancer and being a General Manager aren’t all that different. There really is no better way to organize your thoughts than running your own business, and I had to do that just as much as a freelancer”. Eventually, he took up post with Unique Stream Media. He got to take on as much work as he wanted, and run a one-man shop – talking to clients, making their copy, getting the assets, creating the design, animating it, and presenting it back to the client. It was a perfect marriage of his College Pro background (with a lot of cold calling, and following up on a lot of leads). He ended up doing so well, that he outgrew the company. As a designer, your work can be summed up in a reel (again, make sure to check his out!) and at this point in his life, he had a great one growing, but it was time to add more. He went to an interactive company called design kitchen. That was followed by his work as a motionographer at the Chicago Tribune newspaper, which was followed by a move to St. Louis. Jeremy has had the opportunity to do motion graphics with some incredible companies since then, such as Cinema 40, Amazon, Deloitte, and now, Splice, back in Minneapolis. His job, in case you actually don’t know what a motion designer is (don’t worry, I didn’t either) includes working with clients directly to spit out awesome projects while working with awesome producers. His big project right now includes working with Best Buy…I guess we all have to stay tuned!
