At the crux of our philosophy, we’ve always been committed to developing the best design and BIM software that’s in tune with the needs of designers. To do so, we’ve leveraged input and implemented product feedback from practicing architects, landscape designers, landscape architects, and lighting designers, among other design professionals. Another vital part of these efforts involves the help of our internal industry experts on our product marketing team, so we’re excited to announce that there are three new additions to this ever growing group: Luc Lefebvre, senior architect product specialist, Jim Woodward, senior entertainment product specialist and Brian Nicholson, senior landscape product specialist. After all, there’s no such thing as having too many industry experts.

However, what if that performer isn’t a musician or an actor, but a video gamer. For Remco Teunissen, bringing such an out of the ordinary event to life is part of his everyday workflow in his job of coordinating all of the drawings and set-up and take-down of these events.

We’re always excited to learn more about unique applications of our software, from designing bicycles and perfume bottles to acoustics, which is what led us to John Murphy from Events Scaffold Resources, Inc. Murphy is the mind behind scaffolding structures at events like the X Games, Dew Tour, and the ESPYs, and uses Vectorworks Spotlight software to make it all happen. After starting out as CAD operator for architecture firms, he transitioned to a field that he admits is a bit out of the norm. “I really enjoy this work,” Murphy says. “I’ve studied all forms of drafting and this is just such a unique discipline.”
