In the latest installment of our Columbus Creatives: A Day in the Life series, we talk with Lindsey Billingsley, a Senior Digital Designer at DSW. She loves staying active whether it's rock climbing, running or playing ultimate frisbee!
Hello! I’m Lindsey Billingsley and I’m currently a Senior Digital Designer at DSW but have worked at various agencies in the past. I live in Grandview, but I’m hoping to buy a house in Clintonville in the next year or so.
I’m a big advocator for breakfast! I make sure to eat a solid breakfast every morning, usually including some homemade bread. On the weekends I love to venture to Knotty Pine for breakfast, but Big Mama’s breakfast burritos are my heart and soul. I can’t focus if I’m hungry so breakfast is a must. I’m the resident coffee hater in my office but I still love caffeine. Once I’m in the office I always crack open a Diet Coke before starting to sift through the unavoidable bulk of emails. Once I’m through those I always make a to-do list for the day (I love having a do-list).
I generally try to pack my lunch but sometimes I’ll grab a Mediterranean chicken wrap from my office cafeteria. I like to pack lunches with lots of protein and healthy fats to keep me full longer. I usually hit my stride in the afternoon and can accomplish a lot right after lunch.
Evenings are different every night for me. I’m involved in a lot of sports and every night I can be found either playing ultimate frisbee (my first love), soccer, running, rock climbing at Vertical Adventures or working out at OrangeTheory Fitness. I love spending my free time designing jersey’s for my teams and helping Columbus Ultimate Disc Association organize their leagues as their Social Media Coordinator. I usually have at least once freelance project going on and sometimes even paint pet portraits on the side. I try to make dinners too but I more often have dinner out with friends. I’m addicted to Bibibop, Big Mama’s Burritos, and Yats. Eventually, I crawl into bed to dream until I do it all over again!
