A little bit about Lynn and Jude...

Why I love this job:

Every job is different which means every day is different. No two clients are alike so I never get bored or find the work monotonous. That's a true gift and one this career lends itself to completely. My role as a writer and account service contact has continued to fulfill and reward me in so many ways.

My favorite quote:

Everything in life changes and it's how you deal with change that determines your destiny. This quote says it best..."Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." - Dr. Suess

When I was a kid I wanted to grow up and become…

A squirrel. Hey, I was 5 and my parents said I could be anything when I grew up and I believed them. And what happened? I ended up in the ad business working with a bunch of very smart talented nuts I adore. Not bad at all. 

3 books that tell you a bit about me:

Last of the Home Town Heroes by Bobby Plump
Perfume by Patrick Suskind
The Measure of a Man by Sidney Poitier

My dream binge-watching experience:

I've always been a huge fan of Doc Martin. It's so well written and the dry humor is just wonderful. And yes  I'll admit it...I could watch a season of Amazing Race in one sitting without much difficulty.

Why I love this job:

This will sound cliché, but I get to do what I am passionate about. My role changes a bit with each client or project, but when it comes down to it, I love to design things almost as much as I love seeing a client’s reaction to a new website, logo, brochure, ad or whatsoever is on the docket.

My favorite quote:

"The answer is, remove my outlet for creativity and I would be left with just the execution." - Chef Grant Achatz

When I was a kid I wanted to grow up and become…

As far back as I can remember I loved to draw and to write, but had no idea what I wanted to become. Then I entered a student contest to design the state of Michigan's bicentennial logo. To everyone's surprise I won the contest. I thought that was pretty cool and my future was born.

My dream binge-watching experience:
