New to the Family

Desk FotoliaNafees Mamnoon may be the most recent hire at Family Features as the Web/Digital Designer, but with her laid-back attitude and love for the web, she fits right into the family. Her drive and determination are inspiring to those around her in the workplace. I sat down with Nafees to find out a little more about her background and her love for web design.

What is your educational background?

I went to school in India where I got my bachelor’s degree from the University of Nagpur. I majored in finance and commerce. At the same time, I completed a diploma course in software engineering at Aptech Computer Education. A couple years ago, I decided I wanted to change my career. That led me to Johnson County Community College where I earned my degree in graphic design in 2017.

What does your average day look like at Family Features?

The best part of my job at Family Features is that it is unpredictable. No two days are alike. I assist the production and marketing departments at Family Features. I get requests from each department that require different skill sets. Depending on the project, I must switch between designer and developer roles. It is a challenging position, and I enjoy a challenge.

How is Family Features different from jobs you’ve had in the past?

Most of my prior experience has been in the corporate environment where I was just another employee. At Family Features, it feels more like being part of an extended family.

What is your favorite part about working at Family Features?

My team members. I truly appreciate the help and guidance I’ve received from my team members as well as my manager.

What is your biggest piece of advice for clients?

We work hard to provide the best editorial content to our clients. Please let us help you.

With your background in visuals, can you share some tips for clients creating infographics?

It’s important to have an overarching theme for each infographic, but also keep the content brief at the same time. Presenting complex data in small bits can make it easier to digest. Also, using visual elements can serve as an alternative to sharing information in long blocks of copy.
