Staff Scoop: Joey Potter

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce you to my new friend, Joey Potter! Joey is the Graphic Designer for Fernbank and I recently got to sit down and get to know him a little better.

Joey joined the Fernbank family last May and has since kept himself busy creating artwork and graphics for the Museum as well as acting as the in-house photographer.

A typical day for Joey includes communicating with fellow graphic designer Marisa Crissey, creating assignments, planning for future work and collaborating with the different departments.

Joey always seems to be in a good mood whether he’s walking around the museum, working at his desk or taking pictures at different events.

“I love everything about my job, I really do.”

Joey told me that some of his favorite parts of his job are the variety or work he gets to do, getting new experience and learning from the people he works with.

Working as an unofficial (but much appreciated) in-house photographer, Joey gets to expand his photography skills as well as the Museum’s photo archive. One of his favorite events to shoot was the Dinosaur Egg Hunt this past spring.

“All of our events are fun, but watching the sheer joy of the kinds hunting for the eggs was really great.” Joey said of the event.

You can find some of his photos from that event as well as many others on Fernbank’s Flickr page:

At Fernbank Museum, there’s much more than dinosaurs and giant-screen films. Even with our website, e-newsletters, Facebook pages and Twitter updates, there’s still a lot we’d like to share with you. This blog is an opportunity for the people that keep Fernbank running and constantly expanding, to share stories from their point of view. We hope you’ll enjoy these first-hand, behind-the-scenes glimpses of what goes into keeping a world-class natural history museum running. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on these stories, to hear your personal experiences and hear any suggestions for topics. Happy reading!
