It is no secret that I have a soft spot for technology and science. I almost exclusively work with tech companies on their PowerPoint presentations.
It wasn’t until junior year in high school when I finally had to make a choice between art and science, and science ended up in the backseat. The only studio art class and the science fair class were scheduled at exactly the same time and since the science fair class was created for kids like me that’s where I was initially placed. That’s when I realized I really wanted to be in that art class. Fast forward to today, and I’m what a friend creative director calls a scientific graphic designer.
I often live vicariously through my design work for technology companies. I have the pleasure of learning how all kinds of different and somewhat unheard of technologies work. Being able to combine my desire to design and interest in technology is the epitome of “doing what you love”.
So I’d like to share a video presentation from a new favorite Youtube channel EngineerGuyVideo by Bill Hammack. If you look Bill up you’ll be directed to EngineerGuy.com where the website tagline reads “The most irreverent & playful engineering videos ever made!” And indeed they are.
These videos are amazing because you can tell that Bill enjoys explaining how things work. He kind of reminds me of Bill Nye. He makes the subject matter enjoyable and that kind of believability doesn’t come from practice alone.
