Employee Profile: Sean

Mar 3, 2023

In honour of Employee Appreciation Day we asked our newest team member – a co-op student and our Project Coordinator, Sean Rutherford, to answer 20 exciting questions.

  1. What is your favourite part of your position? Developing social media posts. I love using my creative side.

  1. What have you learned about working agency-side? Collaboration is extremely important and time is of the essence. Working together and doing check-ins prevents the creative process from being slowed or going off track.

  1. What’s a talent you have that many don’t know about you? I can sing. I make the music I want to make – low-fi or indie-pop – and this doesn’t always mean hitting the highest, lowest, or hardest singing notes.

  1. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I was brought up with a very realistic mindset so I came up with architecture. Sadly, I am not fond of science, so here I am in business.

  1. If you were to choose a completely different career what would it be? Either a singer or graphic designer. Nothing that entails a degree of science knowledge. It would have to be creatively stimulating.

  1. If you could be any superhero, which would you be? Spiderman. Being able to fly through the sky and climb up walls fighting local crime, all while being a photographer, would be pretty cool.

  1. How long would you last in a Zombie apocalypse? I’ve watched too many zombie movies and my knowledge of what to do is extensive. I could last years.

  1. If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask? Is there intelligent life similar to us on a planet within our solar system?

  1. What technology from science fiction do you wish existed? A hoverboard would be awesome.

  1. What is something that is really popular now, but in 5 years everyone will look back on it and be embarrassed by it? Social media dance trends.

  1. What’s the most ridiculous fact you know? The human system of blood vessels is over 60,000 miles long which is enough to go around the world more than twice!

  1. If animals could talk, which would be the rudest? Dolphins. They’re the bullies of the sea.

  1. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever worn? When I was a kid my sister dressed me up as an elderly woman with glasses, makeup, heels, and a princess dress. Luckily, very few saw the final product.

  1. What job would you be absolutely terrible at? Accountant. I’d probably fall asleep halfway through making an income statement.

  1. If you had an intro song that played every time you walked into a room, what would it be? Either “The Less I Know the Better” by Tame Impala (and walk in right on the beat drop) or “Some” by Steve Lacy.

  1. Where would your perfect vacation be? Tuscany, Italy

  1. What motivates you to work hard? Having goals, being organized, and taking it one step at a time.

  1. What product would you seriously stockpile if you found out they weren’t going to sell it anymore? Sour Straps. Not too sugary, not too sour. They’re becoming hard to find.

  1. Would you rather be completely alone for 5 years or constantly be surrounded by people and never be alone for 5 years? Being alone for 5 years would allow me to do some soul searching and further explore my spiritual being. It’s much harder to grow when you never have time alone.

  1. If you could travel back in time to any point in history, what would it be? The 70s, 80s, or even 90s. It seemed like a much simpler time, and the music, fashion and culture are things I indulge in on a daily basis.
