People of PATTERN: Amy McAdams

What do your friends call you?
Amy, or the lazier ones just drop the “y”

How old are you (if you don’t mind me asking!)?
41

Where are you from?
Tipton, IN

Which neighborhood do you live in right now?
Fletcher Place

What do you do for a living?
Associate Creative Director/Pixel Pusher

What do you do as a creative outlet?
My day job is pretty creative, but I do things like this (PATTERN) and sew/draw/knit the occasional handcrafted thingamajig.

What’s the most interesting thing happening in Indy right now?
I’d probably say food (I know…boring).

Favorite local brewery, distillery or winery? (Or if not a drinker, then favorite eatery.)
I’m always up for a growler from Chilly Water or Bier. Going out? Probably Indiana City or Hotel Tango.

Last trip you took?
Nashville, TN, for the Brand New Conference

How did you first hear about PATTERN?
When Polina asked, “Do you want to do something for PATTERN?”

What was your favorite PATTERN meetup and why?
The Studio NTK one stands out. If I wasn’t a graphic designer, I’d totally want to be a fashion designer. Plus, seeing one of my favorite spaces in Fountain Square turned into a proper design studio, and hearing all about their process, was really cool. (and, I got to hang out with Laura Walters. Can I change my answer? My answer is: any meet-up where I get to hug Laura Walters.)

What event are you looking forward to attending this month?
Hmmm. That’s a tough one. I guess somebody needs to invite me to something.
