58: Angela Hardison

Categories: 100 Creatives

When we last put the spotlight on 100 creative forces in Phoenix, it was no secret there were more than 100 individuals who were making waves in the local arts community. So as we count down to our annual Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome (back) to 100 Creatives

Angela Hardison
Angela Hardison is a freelance graphic designer (previously of SeeSaw Designs), aspiring textile designer, and a photo stylist. As a brand new mom, she says her focus is currently shifting a bit as she learn the balance between being a creative and a mother.

She also runs Kin, a reunion shirt design company, and write a lifestyle blog where she shares glimpses of what she calls the beauty in her world.

Angela Hardison
I came to Phoenix with . . . A curious mind and a desire to learn. (I was born and mostly raised here.)

I make art because . . . It's in me. When I'm creative, I feel most like myself. And when I'm sharing that art with those around me, I'm fulfilled. I believe that everyone is born an artist in some form or another; some people forget that as they grow, but some of us (and I'm grateful to be one of them) can never let it go.

I'm most productive when . . . My desk is clean and I have good music playing.

My inspiration wall is full of . . . Vintage fabric and patterns, color swatches, old photos, and found typography.

I've learned the most from . . . Mentors who have believed in me, encouraged me, and taught me to create beauty everywhere I go.

Angela Hardison
Good work should always . . . Make you look twice and make you feel something.

The Phoenix creative scene could use more . . . Celebration and recognition.
