Our newest CD gets hands-on
Lover of musicals, RuPaul Drag Race aficionado and former Irish dancer Amy Drew brings skill and rhythm to our team as Creative Director. Visual design, front-end dev, illustration and hand-lettering make Amy a well-rounded creative. So much so that she’s sashayed her way from Senior Designer to her new CD role in just one year as a Cricketeer.
UW-Madison’s Communications Arts program launched Amy into the design world, and she racked up six years of agency experience before joining our team. Her diverse background with clients like Glue Dots and Nonn’s helped her hit the ground running here. She’s branched into the education space with us, tackling big UX design lifts for clients like EdNavigator and Future Forward, along with design support for New York State Education Department. Amy's based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, holding down the Eastern time zone for us.
After a year, we can confidently say this: Amy’s a doer. Amy figures it out. And yes, Amy drew that (@amydrewthat on IG, everybody).
Dive a bit deeper with her answers to samples from the Proust questionnaire:
What is your greatest extravagance?
Probably any tea I purchase that’s not in a cardboard box—fancy tins of Earl Grey are my weakness. That, and my budget for skincare items could probably use some trimming…
Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
“Sorry.” And then when I’m told I’ve been saying sorry too much, I’ll say I’m sorry for that too. Sorry.
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
Music—listening to it and making it. Mexican food is also up there.
When and where were you happiest?
Pretty much any time I’ve been on or near a large body of water.
If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
A corgi owned by an independently wealthy woman living in a big city. I know that’s really specific, but imagine the pampering and adoration! Not to mention probably being pretty oblivious to any of the bad things happening in the world.
