Steve worked as an art developer for me. That means that he was responsible for interpreting editorial content as fresh and engaging visuals. He came up with great concepts (often very clever ones) and saw them through to completion. Sometimes he would implement the idea himself--as a graphic or illustration; sometimes he would commission and then art direct the concept.
Either way, his work stands as among the strongest in the program. Additionally, Steve is a delightful person who designers, editors, and project managers all enjoyed working with. If we’d had enough work, I would have been very happy to keep Steve on permanently.
