Producer, Project Manager... What's in a Name?

Recently the Producer Group at Hot Studio re-examined our label. "We're producers... right?" we asked ourselves in a heated internal meeting.

I fully recognize that no one outside of the design industry would understand why some interactive producers cringe when referred to as (God forbid!) a "project manager," "account manager," "production manager," or any number of unrepeatable terms.

At a design studio founded by a painter and calligrapher (yes, I'm talking about Maria) who first got into business as a teenager painting jean jackets, it is fitting that Hot Studio should celebrate the art and artists in our midst!

Sitting in front of a monitor day in and day out isn't always the best recipe for inspiration. Nature, music, and art are all good catalysts for great ideas, and that's exactly why Hot Studio's visual design team got out of the office and ventured over to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to check out "Meet Me at the Center of the Earth," the Nick Cave exhibition.

What's Really on Your Resume?
