As part of our ongoing Employee Spotlight Series, this week we sat down with Adam Bush from Atiba’s web design team.

 How long have you been with Atiba and what is your role?

I’ve been with Atiba for 1.5 years. My role is User Experience and User Interface Designer.

What is your favorite part about working at Atiba?

I love the flexibility offered to team members at Atiba. I also get to work on a wide range of projects, including custom software builds, web designs, mobile apps, and pretty much anything with user interface. Our clients also span a wide array of industries. I love being exposed to all of the different work Atiba’s clients do.

What motivates you to wake up and go to work?

Not everyone gets to literally conceptualize and create software used by hundreds of thousands, even millions of people worldwide. It’s pretty exciting and makes me love what I do.

What led you to get into your work today?

I actually don’t come from a design background at all. I never really knew what I wanted to do after college. I had 4 different majors in college and a few jobs that weren’t directly correlated with a ‘technical’ design job. I’ve done market research, digital marketing & growth hacking, product management, and venture capital.

A few years ago, my friend and I decided to build our own app, completely designing/business ops that pushed me into the custom software design world. And here we are.

That being said, understanding how product design directly affects and is affected by an overall business (marketing, sales, etc.) and/or its customers, is the most important part of product design—and my not being directly from a design background has definitely differentiated me from most product designers in a very positive way.

Are you a morning or evening person, why?

Evening person, but coffee makes everyone a morning person, right?

If you could high-five one celebrity, who would it be?

As a Cleveland native, it would definitely be Omar Vizquel between the years of 1994-2004 (as a Cleveland Indian).

Is there a secret skill you have?

My weirdest skill is finding four-leaf, five-leaf, six-leaf, seven-leaf, and even eight-leaf clover. Almost every time I go outside I will find at least one four-leaf clover.

In high school, I was a huge baseball player (and as you can imagine, unbelievably superstitious). Before every game, I would have to find at least 4 four-leaf clovers to know I would have a good game. Everyone thought I was insane, but in four years before every single game, I found at least 4 four-leaf clovers.

Adam BushWhat pops into your mind when you think of the word “relaxation”?

I am an extremely, extremely high-energy person, ‘relaxation’ doesn’t exactly mean relaxation to me. I am also a crazy sports person. To ‘relax’ every day after work, I pretty much go play some type of sport. Whether that be pickup basketball, pickup soccer, throwing the baseball, golf, disc golf, rock climbing, working out, flag football, you name it, that is my form of ‘relaxation.’ For whatever reason, sports have always helped clear my head. It is nice to relax my mind and do nothing but think about how I can win a game or beat the other team.
