Graphics are the icing on the promo cupcake. Art is any form is a gift – a talent – and even now an IT skill deluxe. When ERIK CANDIANI, head creative honcho at FOX’s KTVU in the Bay Area (San Francisco-Oakland TV market for the Argentine readers) went on the hunt for a new graphics pro, he had a high bar and great expectations (Charles Dickens reference noted). He’s thrilled at the new hire he made: LISA RUIZ. Even better, he’s worked with her before when they were both at CBS in Sacramento, KOVR. Lisa is a FITM grad (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA) who has had some of the most interesting jobs, like being a design consultant for Jane Seymour Handbags…in Malibu no less. She’s done art for public television in Napa, freelanced and worked with the Madison Square Garden Company where she honed Photoshop skills. Now she’s bringing energy and excitement to the whole KTVU creative team. Just in time for Christmas. Well Dunne! Lisa.

Think About This: “In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it ‘Christmas’ and went to church; the Jews called it ‘Hanukkah’ and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say ‘Merry Christmas!’ or ‘Happy Hanukkah!’ or (to the atheists) ‘Look out for the wall!” ~ Dave Barry
