This month’s AIGA Maine Member Spotlight features Outreach Board Member, Timothy Plumer, Jr. We talked to his about work, his life in Maine, and his experience with AIGA.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your work.
I am unabashed at how much I love my work at Adobe. Inc. My current role there is to understand customer business objectives so that we can sell software and services that matter to our customers by providing real revenue benefits from using them. I lead a wonderfully talented team and we deep-dive into the creative and document cloud software to tackle business problems associated with each. We spend more time listening to business problems than we do showing off software in action, and no two days are alike. My overall goal, though it to make the world a better place through communication and the ability of each of us to tell our story—be it personal or business.
What brought you to Maine and how long have you lived here?
I have lived my whole life here in Maine (save for two quick, unsuccessful jaunts to New York upstate and Southern New Hampshire). I have lived in Winthrop, Orono, and now live in Gorham. I truly cannot imagine wanting to be anywhere else.
Why did you join AIGA Maine?
I work for a global company, but I want to have a local impact. The world of communication has been democratized by technology, and I want to see Maine thrive as a place where we offer next-level communication capabilities to companies in Maine and around the world. I want to help Mainers succeed as great designers with mad production skills.
What are a few of your favorite spots in Maine
– The Audubon Center at the Scarborough Marsh
– Anywhere in Orono (but I love OBC the most!)
– Pemaquid Point (look at a quarter from the 80’s and you might see the lighthouse on the Maine quarter).
