Now that we’ve covered the major do’s and don’ts of the creative interview process, let’s dive into the most nerve wrecking aspect of the interview: the tough questions headed your way.
Remember, you don’t have to be nervous, you just have to be prepared!
And even more than that, you have to be yourself.
Here at Go Media, one of the most important aspects of the interview is getting down to the core of who you are. Since we’re a super small, and really tight-knit group, the biggest nightmare is finding a candidate who doesn’t vibe with our crew.
So take a deep breath, relax, and tell us who you are.
When creating art for custom stickers, it is best to create artwork at a minimum 300dpi. You may use photoshop or illustrator, or a free alternative like Gimp.

Resolution is not usually a concern when using Adobe Illustrator to create vector artwork.
One of my favorite movies of all time is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I also really love the movie posters that featured a torn paper effect across the person’s eyes with some text underneath. Nice job by BLT on the original posters. I thought it would be cool to make my own version and show you how I did it.
If you want to skip this whole thing and make it easy, I’ve made a Smart Object Photoshop Template so you can easily add your own photo and text. Just double click the smart object layers, paste in your photo, save, and voila! You can even swap out the torn paper images if you’d like.

Cedar Point, to me, represents everything great about America, about summer, about life. Inside those golden gates are thrilling rides, elephant ears, cheesy singing & dancing shows and questionable fashion choices. I mean, be still my beating heart.

After a tear or two, I pulled myself together and realized that this wasn’t a time for sadness but of celebration. Not only was Jeff being granted the ability to pursue his next dream, but I mine. Thanks to Jeff, I have been been offered what I consider to be the biggest and best opportunity of my life.
