Hannah Kindred

Hannah sat down with us to share a bit more about her interesting day-to-day, and what brought her to Lexington.

AAF: Like many of us… you moved to Lexington. Where are you from and what brought you here?

Hannah: I grew up about 30 minutes outside of Lexington in Versailles. I moved away for college, and moved to Lexington to start work at Lynn Imaging & Monster Color in 2015. What I like about Lexington is, it’s not too big or too small with plenty of things to do and friendly people. It feels like home.

AAF: What’s your favorite part about being a graphic designer in Lexington?

Hannah: If I could describe our advertising industry in one word it would be: GROWING. I’ve found a great community of professionals and friends. The best part of my job is that I am never bored. I get to work on so many different kinds of projects for different types of clients. My favorite projects are booklets and page layouts, and we’ve also worked on a lot of vehicle wraps lately.

AAF: What design trends are you excited to see more of?

Hannah: I don’t know if it’s an emerging trend, but I love vintage inspired design. Old style with a modern twist! I love seeing something new that looks aged and handwritten. It gives the brand or message a really personal feel.

AAF: What keeps your spirits up?

Hannah: Being around people who love what they do and who are good at what they do, makes me want to be better and do better.

AAF: You always wanted to be in advertising, right?

Hannah: I had no idea what I wanted to do when I was growing up. The only thing I ever thought I would end up doing was coaching gymnastics (which I did in high school). When I went to college, I met with an advisor for students with undeclared majors. I like to make stuff, so graphic design was a natural fit. I took print and technical classes, and loved print.

AAF: When it’s time to refresh, where would we find you?

Hannah: I am usually with friends or family, hiking, watching a movie, doing a Bible study or at a concert. If I could be anywhere… I’d be in San Diego, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Nashville, or Gatlinburg.
