Kaelynn is a sponge for ideas. She’s enthusiastic to learn, and she observes everything. No detail goes unnoticed. And she’s just a little bit nerdy, which means we run to her for technical skill as much as we call on her artistry.
How do you get your creative juices flowing?
I love listening to music! Part of my process is listening to music or a podcast. Between that and a warm cup of coffee or tea I am good to go for the day. I also like walking, especially when I think I’m out of ideas.
What’s your favorite thing about being a designer?
Problem solving. I love it. I love that an idea can just stew in your head until it is perfect. I love knowing a design so well that you can explain every single element of the design and exactly why you did it. I love helping people be happy and successful because of successful design.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I was a competitive dancer growing up. I did everything: tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, contemporary. Tap was my favorite. We even went to a national competition for dance and placed 4th overall for one of our tap numbers. But we we are always taught that the trophy didn’t matter. Dance taught me how to be a better person, and it is a big part of who I am and who I want to be.
