In the Life: Design

As you may know, it’s hard to run a creative agency without a Graphic Designer. Lucky for me, I’m Red Thread’s Designer. But my role goes far beyond just making logos.

Everyday I get to make cool “things.” These “things” could be a brochure for a dental office. Or they could be commissioned street art. Or they may be photography for a salon. Or videography for a fundraising event. Graphic Designers do not only create business cards and flyers, we make beautiful media that functions.

As Designers, we get to analyze placement, color, size, etc. These properties are all related, and work together to create a cohesive work of art. It is our job as designers to guide the eye.

…..And we just like to make things look good.


Don Draper might smite me, but whiskey tastes awful. There’s nothing pleasant about foul smelling cough syrup stirred together with a bit of regret with a hint of gasoline.
When I joined Red Thread last year, it was up to me to use my overbearing need for timeliness and efficiency to keep everyone in line and getting their work done. My presence was an adjustment for everyone.
