Lindsey is a graphic designer on Blue Beyond’s Visual Communications team, with more than ten years of experience in design work.
She has worked for a variety of companies, from smaller, locally owned business to national corporations. Through these experiences, she recognized how important employee care and engagement are — to both the employees and the employer. Lindsey knows that a job can’t be done ‘right’ without the people believing in the work and the purpose behind the work. Seeing people struggle with this concept in both her career and volunteer work has shown her how businesses so often need guidance to create atmospheres that bring management and employees together to thrive and give their best.
Lindsey is known for her genuine compassion for all those she works (and volunteers) with and for always being willing to lend a helping hand. She graduated from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis with a bachelor’s degree in computer graphics technology. She has volunteered for an animal shelter for over 10 years and has been a member of their board for five years.
I bring curiosity and compassion, both of which allows me to ask questions and care about what I learn and be excited for what I do.
For me, seeing the end product has always been the most rewarding, whether it’s been seeing a final print product, a logo being added to a sign, or even during my work with animals — seeing the adopted animal go to their fur-ever home. It’s the happiness of the ‘client’ that drives me.
I admire compassion the most. I think it is so easy to judge but it’s harder to take a step back and empathize with someone. I’d rather spend my time showing compassion than judgement. We all take a different path in life but that does not mean any of us are doing so in a right or wrong way.
While in college I worked with a local Indianapolis restaurant to create a branding package as my senior project. Seeing my final logo on signs, menus, napkins, pens, rugs, and so much more, is a feeling I don’t think I’ll ever forget. It really helped to validate that I was in the right career.
I had lived in Greenfield since I was 5 years old. Once out of college, I stayed in Greenfield, commuting to work and never really thinking I needed to get out. However, once I started looking to buy my first home, I realized that there was a whole world out there to explore – but for the time being, I moved an hour away from Greenfield to Brownsburg…small steps! Through this process, I learned that change isn’t always scary, and it has opened my eyes to the idea of exploring new places and trying new things. In my personal life, I usually like the safe bets, but I’m finding as I get older, sometimes the risky choices provide the greater outcomes.
My favorite place is anywhere with Paul, my fiancé. I know that can be a cliche response, but there is a reason for it. I am an only child, and my parents recently moved to North Carolina from Indiana. I am very close to my parents, and am not close to any other immediate family. It was a bit of a scary thought, being so far away from my family, but Paul not only makes me feel loved, but his family has brought me in like one of their own already. Paul makes every day interesting and keeps me on my toes. It’s always amazing to me how we’ve both helped shape the other into a person I don’t think either of us thought we could be. And we both support each other on this journey of figuring out who we are and what we want. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
