Welcome to the new Creative Perspectives blog.
As much as we love our web site, it doesn’t really tell the whole story of who we are and what we do. That’s important, because when you work with us at Creative Perspectives, you not only get our design skills and our technical expertise, but our perspectives on design, technology, User Experience, and the industries that we serve, such as the Life Sciences, Telecommunications, and Technology industries.
We’ll also be using the blog as a way of keeping you up to date about Marionette™, our exclusive platform for developing interactive content. Marionette is the sum total of everything we’ve learned as developers over twenty years.
(Haven’t seen Marionette at work? Ask us for a demo.)
The Cast of Characters:
Ellen White: Ellen founded Creative Perspectives in 1985 with $50 for a used museum case that repurposed as a makeshift lightbox. Since then, she’s grown the company from a one-woman graphic design shop to an interactive development company with clients around the country and is known around the world.
Ellen is our President and Creative Director, and is responsible for a our design style that’s been called “elegant”, “international”, “beautiful”, and “thoughtful’.
Tom McCrystal: Tom joined Ellen in 1989 as a design associate, and is now the Chief Technology Officer at Creative Perspectives. And old-school programmer, Tom’s written working code in 70 or 80 different languages, most of which you’ve probably never heard. (SNOBOL? Algol? Z-80 Assembly? Anyone? Anyone? Bueler?)
Tom is also engaged in the public policy side of technology, and was the founding Chairman of the Virginia Piedmont Technology Council. He’s currently serving on the Advisory Committee on Privacy of the Joint Commission on Technology and Science, his sixth appointment to JCOTS in ten years.
Davis Murphy: Davis joined the team in 2006 fresh out of Full Sail University. Starting as a production associate, Davis is now a member of our technical staff as a multimedia producer focusing on Flash, Actionscript, HTML/CSS and PHP. He takes great joy and pleasure from working on the web and creating solid and dependable interactive experiences.
