I needed an excuse to show you my dog.
Just to confirm, that’s my fiancé Mike, me, and my fur child Toby named after Toby Flenderson for any fellow Office fans.
I'm Lindsey Rae, a graphic designer, coffee addict, and animal enthusiast working and residing in the Philadelphia suburbs of Pennsylvania. My passion has always been generating new ideas and working hands-on whenever I can. Though I’m a lover of both pixels and print, I'm a paper perfectionist that geeks out over the little touches that can bring a design to life. After interning with companies like Disney and Crayola, I spent about 4 years working in the toy industry. This gave me the foundation to understanding all things packaging, working alongside licensors like Nickelodeon and Mattel, designing and building showroom set design, as well as casting and directing photoshoots.
Currently, I’m working at Frankford Candy, located in Philadelphia. I work with an array of licensors both in children’s entertainment as well as popular food brands. From designing the product itself, to what the consumer sees at retail; this role is a full-circle process. I’ve gained a solid understanding of many FDA requirements and other government guidelines regarding the food and beverage industry.
When I'm not fulfilling my daily design duties, you can find me actively experimenting in the kitchen, hiking, sipping coconut coffee, crafting, reading, lettering, dancing until the microwave beeps, or likely filling my phone with more photos of my dog. I welcome any opportunity to expand my cranium and experiences.
Instead of boring you to death with facts and bullet points, let's chat! If you're looking for a hardworking designer or someone with some extra enthusiasm, I can promise you both. Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
