We are thrilled to announce that Callie Bumba has been promoted to Art Director of Hey Now! Media.
For the last six years Callie has been with our team consistently growing and working her way up from a general Designer to Content Creator, Digital Design Lead, and now Art Director.
In her new role Callie will be formally overseeing and leading our talented design team, providing art direction and consistency checks on all projects, strategizing, concepting and creating on our branding work, running our print department, and continuing to bring her organized, focused, and thoughtful energy to our team.
Outside of work Callie spends her days inside of her cozy apartment with her boyfriend Matt and 11 year old dog Nando. If there’s one thing you should know about Callie, it’s that she’s a TV and film junkie. If we’re ever looking for a show to binge watch, she’s always the first person we ask. Her favorite thing to do in her free time is travel the world — her goal is to visit as many art museums as possible!
Ready to get a deeper look into Callie’s work from home life?
We interviewed her *virtually* so you can get to know her as well as we do!
What does your WFH set-up look like and what's your favorite part of working virtually?
I try to keep it as organized and clean as possible. As a creative person, I think it’s a direct reflection of how I’m feeling or how productive I can be. Some of my essentials are post-it notes, candles, a calendar, notebook, and magazines for design inspo.
I don’t miss the traffic jams on my way to and from the office but my favorite part of WFH has been the flexibility.
We know you’re a TV/Movie junkie, what are some of your favs?
My favorites lean toward the ones I watched growing up with my siblings (Dumb & Dumber, The Sandlot, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). They’re just so nostalgic for me but I also have a soft spot for sitcoms. I could probably write a dissertation on why FRIENDS is one of the best sitcoms of all time.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
My usual order from Chipotle. And they say you can’t buy happiness…
What does your ideal day look like?
On a day off work I’m definitely sleeping past 10am then probably heading to the nearest Target or planning the next trip I want to go on. I’ve already got my next 2 in the queue!
You’re a CLE native. What spots would you recommend to someone visiting?
I’ve been to dozens and dozens of art museums and The Cleveland Museum of Art is still ranked high on my list. Crocker Park is great too because there’s something for everyone while simultaneously getting some fresh air.
If you know Callie you know she loves to travel. What has been your favorite trip?
My trip to San Francisco has always been near the top of my list. The city and environment felt very aligned to my personality and I could see myself living there when I’m old enough to retire. All the times I’ve visited California I always come home feeling rejuvenated.
Some honorable mentions are NYC, Nashville, Boston and London for their museums alone.
What’s your favorite thing about being a part of the HNM family?
Collaboration. Not only do I thrive from hearing from other people on our talent filled team but I think it’s vital to exercise that muscle of being receptive and open to different ideas and perspectives.
