Hannah Kindred

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

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

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.

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

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.

What design trends are you excited to see more of?

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.

What keeps your spirits up?

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.

You always wanted to be in advertising, right?

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.

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

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.
