On-Air Graphic Designer for CNN Programs Including “New Day” and “Situation Room”

Julian Schieneman is an on-air graphic designer for CNN International. He’s responsible for daily workflow with producers and supervisors for the network’s programs “New Day,” “Newsroom,” “The Lead,” and “Situation Room.” Prior to joining CNN, Julian worked for companies including Fox Sports South and Fox Five. “Working in conjunction with show producers and editors, my job is to facilitate any graphic requests for on-air production. Often we have between 1-2 hours to complete the request, but during breaking news, we sometimes have as little as 10 minutes (yikes) to whip up something quickly.”

His fast-paced job means Julian is often learning on the go. “Although not the most desirable way to learn something, this taught me a valuable skill: Google-fu!” He adds that to succeed in the industry, he must be committed to keeping up with changing technologies and techniques.  “You’re only as good as your last project. We are creatives, and at this point have become very good at creating things. The reality is that most people do not have that skill and it's a valuable skill that separates you from [others].”

He enjoys knowing that he’s been employed by one of the world’s largest news providers for over 10 years—and continues to push himself  in his profession by attending trade shows, conferences, and watching trends.

Julian, who in 2007 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts & Animation from The Art Institute of Atlanta, says that his education taught the skills of adaptability and resourcefulness. “I can offer an array of skill sets that help out employers in a myriad of ways, whenever needed.” He recommends that current students stay inspired as they look at the bigger picture.  “The struggles of today will be the foundation of your success in the near future.”
