10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Alison!
What’s your favorite font?
That’s a tough question because I think it changes every month or so. Currently one of my favorite fonts is Clarendon. It actually was first published in 1845 and then was reworked in 1953. It has a classic old-world feel that I just love incorporating into my work these days.
Another one of my favorites is Feel Script. I used this typeface when designing my wedding invitations! It has a such a sweet retro feminine appeal that is so fun to work with.
Coffee or Tea?
I really love both! However, I am from Alabama and southern, sweet tea is very hard to beat!
Cheesecake or Ice Cream?
I would have to say cheesecake…with ice cream on the side.
What’s your favorite Bible verse?
Proverbs 3: 3-6: “Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
Who’s your favorite historical figure?
Corrie ten Boom. The bravery, strength, and peace that she walked in amazes me.
“Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.” Corrie ten Boom
What’s your favorite clothing store?
I love LOVE Anthropolgie…but don’t get me wrong there is nothing like finding a great deal at TJMAXX.
What hobbies do you enjoy when you’re not working?
I enjoy working out, exploring the outdoors, going on walks with our golden retriever Ellie, coffee shops, praying, studying the Bible, cooking, blogging, and always spending time with my precious husband Luke.
What inspired you to work in graphic design?
My dad! My whole childhood he kept a pen in his shirt pocket where he could always sketch designs and ideas onto napkins at restaurants or any other drawing surface. It was also so special to see him sketch up his latest idea or invention. He is a very talented painter, drawer, and industrial designer. Currently is an Industrial Design professor at Auburn University.
When I was in high school he would check me out of school to go see his students present their design projects and hear other design professionals speak. This sparked my interest in design so upon my acceptance to Auburn I decided to pursue graphic design. Even though I did not choose to major in “industrial” design all of my design classes were in the same building that my father taught in. It was so neat to have him help coach me along in the way in my design efforts. To this day is he is still encouraging in my designs!
The best part of being a graphic designer is……
The ability to create and make beautiful things with my hands. I love that God, Creator of heaven and earth gives His children the ability to also create. It is my desire to be used by God through my talents and creativity to serve others and love Him in return!
