Meet Ashley Gorman, one of Anthem's designers, featured this week in our Employee Spotlight series.
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
A: As a designer, I take client logos and assets and apply them in an aesthetically pleasing way onto apparel and merchandise items. My favorite parts of my job are branding and illustration work. I love giving personality to the project and creating things that people love to look at and enjoy
Who had the most influence over you?
My family. Growing up they always encouraged my creative side, buying art supplies, making crafts with me, signing me up for art classes, and of course helping me go to an art college for a design degree. Thanks, Mom and Dad!
What color best represents your personality and how does that color make you feel?
That’s a tough one, but I would say teal. It’s a fun color but it’s also calming.
How would your best friends or family describe you in three words?
Friendly, ambitious, and silly.
What is your favorite activity to do locally and why?
I always loved the water, and I’ve recently taken up paddleboarding. I was born and raised in South Florida, so growing up doing water sports on a lake or at the beach always meant that there were slightly terrifying critters in the waters with you.
Out here, there’s just fish, much less scary — haha! Paddleboarding is easy and relaxing. When I’m out on the water, everything else melts away for a few hours, it’s what I do to unwind.
What is your favorite local restaurant?
I don’t eat out a lot, but when I do it’s The Post. The Boulder location has chicken tender baskets on Wednesday, it’s pretty fantastic!
Best concert you have ever attended?
Hands down Odesza at Red Rocks.
Where’s your favorite place in the world?
The house I grew up in, specifically the backyard. I spent so much time drawing, reading and hanging out there with family and friends. It also helps that the view is beautiful and relaxing.
“Why Won’t You Date Me?” with comedian Nicole Byer. It’s a hilarious, fresh and honest approach about life and relationships.
I love baking desserts: cupcakes, cookies, and cakes!
