Bill Kaminski

Senior Graphic Designer

HOW I STARTED IN THIS BUSINESS:

I’ve always been into art. It hasn’t always been design, but it’s always been art. In fact, I knew I had a future in art in kindergarten when I made the best hand turkey. After high school I went to MATC for commercial art to see if I could do it and make a living out of it. After that, I went to MIAD and started working with Macs, and that really changed everything. I started working at an ad agency right out of undergrad…and that was pretty much it.

WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT MY JOB:

I like being busy. I really thrive on the pace of the environment here. There are a lot of puzzles that you need to put together from a lot of little puzzle pieces, so I also like that I can lean on the consistency of the design aspect to put those pieces together. Plus, I really enjoy working with the different disciplines in one place – the writers, the photographers, web people, social media…and all of it blending together.

WHEN I’M NOT AT WORK:

I’m working. Kidding…kind of. For me, design is more of a lifestyle. Outside of the office I teach design courses at MIAD, so I take the life approach that you never stop teaching and you never stop learning. That’s gotten me to this point because I constantly want to learn new things, fix bad habits, find new methods…I think you have to stay sharp within your niche so that there will be a need for you to keep doing what you’re doing. Outside of all of that, I like binging on Netflix, fishing, biking, really anything outdoors.

BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED:

Never say ‘never’, and never say ‘always’.

IF I WEREN’T DOING THIS:

I’ve always been super into anything related to fish and the ocean, so I’d probably be doing something like marine biology.

TO ME, POSITIVELY ENGAGING MARKETING MEANS:

It’s all about creating and fostering connections.
