Nice to Meet You: Kelsey Greer

Role at FoxFuel:
Graphic Designer

 


 

Kelsey’s Favorites

Show on Netflix
Parks and Recreation. Ron Swanson is my dream man.

Happy Place in Nashville
Picnic with my friends at the Love Circle. Or swing dancing in the park.

Dad Joke
Ahh, my favorite joke to make. I like the one about the dad convention (Hint: click the image to see the joke.).

90s Band
dcTalk. That’s who I grew up listening to. But also because I didn’t know secular music existed until the early 2000’s. That or the A*Teens ABBA Generation album.

Spirit Animal
Kristen Wiig. It’s my goal to dress up as all of her SNL characters for Halloween. I think being Target Lady was my favorite costume yet.

Recent Ad or Ad Campaign
I love the KFC colonel campaign. They’ve really stepped it up on their marketing, and their site got a new design. I love the different celebrities as the colonel—it’s like a guessing game! I’m still not gonna eat their food.


All About Kelsey

What’s the most frustrating comment, question, or feedback you get from clients?
When a client doesn’t like something and doesn’t have a reason why, it can be frustrating. Sometimes it’s just, “I don’t like it,” and no constructive feedback. I just have to read their minds…

What’s been your biggest adventure?
I was sponsored by Panasonic to go on a free two-week trip to Japan in high school. Overall, that was a huge adventure, but the best night was when we went on a scavenger hunt all across Osaka (which is the third-largest city in Japan). It was me and another girl (we were both 15) running around the city asking people if they spoke English. We had to navigate the subway system and take pictures of landmarks. We won. As winners, we chose to do karaoke. It was a great night.

If you were permanently exiled from the design world, what would do instead?
I’d be a cruise ship performer. Or a board game inventor. Or a voice over artist. Or a hand model. Or on SNL.

What’s your guilty pleasure font? (bad font that you secretly like)
Cooper Black. I just really want an excuse to use that typeface on a shirt or something. It’s so retro.

What could you look at all day?
Pugs. And hot air balloons.

What best gets your creative juices flowing?
Watching a movie, listening to a podcast, reading a book/magazine, doing a headstand. I also have a long list of design resources that I draw inspiration from.

Would you rather be in a real version of The Walking Dead or Jurassic Park?
Jurassic Park! I want to see if a saddle would fit on a dinosaur. And I’m totally freaked out by zombies. I can’t even be in the same room when The Walking Dead is on. The sounds are so gross.

Nashville’s Best Donuts : Happy National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day! So we got a giant inflatable donut, stuffed our faces, and took some pictures. We also scoped out the Nashville donut scene so you can skip straight to the good stuff…

Five Daughters Bakery

Both adorable and delicious, Five Daughters’ donuts will put you into an instantaneous sugar coma as visions of sugar cane sprinkles and locally sourced ingredients dance through your head.

We’d recommend the 100 Layer Donut, of which one FDB superfan said, “It’s like America and France made slow sweet love and had a pastry baby.”  … Je t’adore, our little French-American bundle of joy.

Shipley Do-Nuts

Okay, so these aren’t exactly local, but they’re just so darn good. Lawrence Shipley, Sr. created the recipe back in 1936 when they sold for 5¢ a dozen. Always hand-cut, and always served hot, Shipley Sr.’s “do-nuts” took over the south, growing to what is now a franchise of more than 190 stores. Can’t get that 5¢-a-dozen price tag anymore, but that same gooey goodness stuck around.

Utterly Nash

Best compliment to a sugar high? A caffeine buzz, obviously. Utterly Nash serves up its tasty concoctions next to the aeropress and organic fair trade dark roast chocolate-covered espresso beans. Now hold on, they don’t crank out your average glaze and jelly sugar rolls – this some classy dough. Lemon Thyme Caramel, Poppyseed, Luxardo Cherry… prepare to question everything you’ve been brought to believe about donuts.

Fox’s Donut Den

You’ve seen the dancing lights; the ones that call you out of the fury-inducing Green Hills traffic that forever clutters Hillsboro Drive. A moment of sweet relief sweeps over you as you walk through the doors and into something resembling a glitter-bombed diner. But they’re not serving Reubens and malt milkshakes with extra Oreo pieces, oh no…they’re selling your childhood memories. Chocolate sprinkles, bear claws, apple fritters, and so many perfectly bite-size little donut holes…Fox’s Donut Den has your joy to go.
