How well do you know the NAC staff? Each week we highlight a different member of the NAC team to help you get to know us better!
This week's #TeamTuesday feature team member is Creative Director, Leigh Alison. As a lover of all things design, Leigh has her degree in Graphic Design from The Art Institutes and has freelanced for many well-known brands in the Philadelphia area for over 10 years.
Learn More About Leigh:1. What do you enjoy most about your position?
Creative license. Coming up with new and interesting methods to convey an emotion or message. I'm really looking forward to our Queen of Hearts Masquerade Ball in March. There is a lot of creativity and behind the scenes planning which goes into it. I enjoy the creative process and seeing the execution unfold.
2. What is your proudest accomplishment?
Supporting my family for nearly 10 years as a freelance artist and stay-at-home mother of three.
3. What is something most people don’t know about you?
I originally went to school for Psychology/Pre-Physical Therapy, but went back to my roots and graduated in Graphic Design with Honors.
4. What motivates you to succeed?
I find inspiration everywhere...whether that be in the color of the sky, a shape of an object or even a juxtaposition. Art is everywhere; so is beauty.
5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Europe: I hope that Paris is in my future.
6. What are three things that you can’t live without?
My kids aside: music (and of course my headphones), coffee and art.
7. What’s the best gift you ever received?
My children are my best gift. However, I still treasure an inspirational letter from an old co-worker.
