1First, tell us about yourself, your company, job profile, etc.
My business partner, Grant Wright, and I founded eSchoolView in 2008 in a second-story room of a house that served as an office. We now work with more than 700 school districts and educational organizations across the country.
2Tell us a bit about your business and what you do.
We offer a wide array of products to power educational organizations, whether that’s website design and hosting, online portals, document management or ADA compliance. Our products are custom built specifically for the field.
3Congratulations! As the winner of the 2018 Muse Creative Awards, what does winning this award mean to you and your team?
It validates the work we do day in and day out to create products that are at the forefront of the industry.
4Where do you see the evolution of creative industry going over the next 5-10 years?
Continually evolving. We work with clients who are preparing students across the country to be ready for the future and our products need to reflect that leading edge.
5What are your top three (3) favorite things about our industry?
The opportunity, creative ingenuity and expansive showcase platform (desktop, responsive sites, and custom-built apps).
6Who has inspired you in your life and why?
The eSchoolView team. We hire people who are excited about what we do and the opportunities we offer our clients. We celebrate success every day. We work hard but also know when to stop and play.
7What makes your COMPANY specifically, unique in the creative industry?
Our Content Management System (CMS) was built from the ground up specifically for educational organizations. And, more than half of our team has worked in the field, from superintendents and board members to technology specialists and cabinet-level executives. We understand website management must be intuitive for all levels of users, and websites should always be easy to update from any device. We have an arsenal of editing tools, neatly packed within an intuitive interface designed by our award-winning team that teachers and administrators can use from their classrooms and offices.
8If you could give one piece of advice to someone considering a career in creative industry, what would it be?
Look for opportunities. Challenge your team. Build communities.
9What resources would you recommend to someone who wants to improve their skills in the advertising industry?
The World Wide Web is a vast resource but look for credentialed professional development that fits exactly the skills your team needs to boost. And, don’t balk at the investment.
10Tell us something you have never told anyone else.
It’s a secret.
11Finally, what is your key to success?
The courage to take risks and working with a dedicated team I trust.
