Team Member Spotlight: Lindsey Maymon, Digital Designer

If it has to do with art or music Lindsey is in love with it, and as one of Blackstone’s uber talented digital designers, she is right at home in the ever-changing world of digital creative. Keep reading to learn more about Lindsey and what makes her tick! 

Tell us how you first got involved in with design? 
I took a digital design course in college to break up my boring business classes one semester and fell in love with Illustrator, switched majors, and focused on all things design.

What was your first impression of Blackstone?
“Uhh it’s 9am and that guy has bourbon in his coffee mug?”

What has been your favorite project at Blackstone?
Our own rebranding and website. It was really fun/challenging for us as designers because it’s not like many of our clients are digital agencies. We were able to try a lot of new exciting things!

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
My fiance, Ryan.

What is the greatest challenge you have had to overcome in your life thus far?
Being pregnant. I am in a constant state of hanger.

What is the one thing you cannot resist?
Cheese fries. Always. And the roasted corn the boy scouts sell at Harvest Homecoming.

What is your greatest fear?
Definitely spiders. In every shape and size. Especially this special breed that grow in my parent’s basement we named spickets (a dangerous crossbreed of a spider and cricket).

What is your favorite thing to do?
Kayaking on a river or creek somewhere drinking a beer.

What’s the weirdest job you’ve ever had?
I wouldn’t say it was a super weird job, but I worked at a movie rental store for a while. I was the unofficial scary movie expert.

Which one would you want most – flying cars, robot housekeepers, or moon cities?
I really think flying cars would be dope, but practical me is saying a robot housekeeper because keeping my house clean with a baby is going to be tough.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
Paleontology. I have actually held fossilized dinosaur poop before.

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?
Please stop listening to Yellowcard.
