Our Humans of 3Q series continues this week with Karl Wolfmueller, Production Artist out of our Austin office! Get to know Karl below:
Explain your role at 3Q in 3 sentences or fewer:
I help to ensure quality control on all of our creative deliverables. I also help with creation and design of animations and video editing needs.
What sets 3Q apart from other agencies in the industry?
The team is uplifting, not downputting. I was surprised that everyone strives to meet high-quality standards, but with positive reinforcement. It’s nothing short of amazing and really set a new bar of standards.
What’s one marketing lesson you wished you had learned earlier?
Do fewer things better.
When coworkers from other offices come to visit, what’s one thing they absolutely have to do in your city?
Take a jog/stroll down by Lake Austin. Try some local food here; we have tons.
What’s something that makes your office cooler than the other 3Q offices?
Well after seeing the new San Diego office, I don’t think the Austin office will be THAT cool. But we have great views and it’s close to home. Can’t beat that!
What’s been the coolest thing you’ve done with your unlimited PTO?
Getting to go to the beach with my family!
Have you participated in 3Q 3%? If so, what’s been your favorite experience?
I was excited to help out at the animal shelter. I did this before many years ago in San Antonio, and it was nice to get back into that scene again.
What 3Q initiative outside of your job description are you most proud of being a part of? (3% diversity committee, etc)
Definitely the 3Q3%. It feels great to help give back to our community, no matter who we are helping. Always makes me feel great to help someone else out.
How do you spend your free time?
Mostly with my family, raising two (not crazy yet) daughters.
Tell us about your morale associate (pet: if you have one).
His name is Rohan (pronounced: row-one). He’s a mix breed (about 11 years old now). Very chill and only barks at strangers. Kind of the perfect pet.
What do you think has been the most interesting change in the marketing industry or in your channel this year?
That consumers are looking at products to use more than to own, e.g. Airbnb, scooters, cars, mobile phones, etc.
If you were given an unlimited amount of money to invest into one upcoming or exciting marketing technology, what would it be?
AR Technology in glasses and perhaps automobiles.
If you could choose any TV show or movie world to live in, what would it be?
Dragon Ball Z, no questions.
