Each quarter, CHIEF team members nominate their peers for an agency-wide recognition—a chance to give kudos to those who go “above and beyond” and embody our agency values of passion, boldness and empowerment.

This quarter, in between bites of CHIEF-catered Cuban sandwiches, the entire team took the time to recognize Kevin McLean for his outstanding work and can-do attitude. Not only is Kevin an incredible designer and devoted team player, he was also game to answer some of our quirky questions for this fun Q&A.

Describe what you do at CHIEF in 3 words or less.

KM: Production Design.

What do you love about your job?

KM: The wide variety of projects—there is never a shortage of interesting stuff to work on.  

How did you discover your passion for design?

KM: I actually try to avoid the computer screen as much as I can outside of work.
