Meet Bruce Ruff, Senior Art Director

Q. When did art call you? (Note that if the “a” were capitalized, this would be a completely different question.)
A. Very early in life, art came calling when I was in grade school. I would copy political caricatures from popular magazines, and I got a book on sketching animals. I decided back then I wanted to create commercial art of some kind for a living one day.

 

Q. If you had to go back and re-live one decade during your life, which would it be, and why?
A. I really liked the ‘80s a lot. I could go back to that decade and live it again; of course, I will need a Delorean.

 

Q. Please give us a brief run-down of your typical day.
A. I like to start my day with a cup of good coffee, and by looking at or reading something that inspires me creatively. Around this time, I will put on some morning music from various online radio stations. Then I’ll go over my pending jobs and tasks, to prioritize my day. From there I dive right in and get busy with designing, concepting and collaborating with other members of our team.

 

Q. With the spirit of the season in full swing, inquiring minds want to know: If you could eradicate one holiday song from the face of planet Earth, which would you choose? Thank you in advance, because we know you’ll pick wisely.
A. It would have to be Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.” I bet his saxophone player Clarence would agree; it’s annoying when he stops singing in the middle of the song and asks Clarence if he’s been good, and if so, will Santa be bringing him a new saxophone for Christmas this year. So. Annoying.

Doctors need to advertise. It may not be a popular sentiment, or one the consumer likes to acknowledge, but it’s true. We’re all better served when physicians — like those at Great Basin
