A graduate of North Carolina State University’s College of Design, Kristen Brower (affectionately known around the office as “Sparkles”) is our Graphic Designer at Intent. Learn a little more about her today!
Name: Kristen “Sparkles” Brower
Start Date: Started interning in June 2016, started full time in July 2018
Position: Graphic Designer
Brief overview of what you do: I am the creator of all visuals, graphics and branding for Intent. Sometimes I’m tasked with the hardest challenge of them all: interpreting Kelly’s thoughts and constructing them into visual form.
What brought you to Motivator/Intent: During my sophomore summer, I was looking for a graphic design internship to introduce myself to the working world. It didn’t take long to realize Motivator/Intent is not a typical workplace, and that my job would last much longer than just that summer.
What do you like most about working at Motivator/Intent: I enjoy the ability to be creative with my projects and to work alongside great people!
Hometown: Charlotte, NC
Hobbies: When I’m not busy trying all the delicious new food and beer around Charlotte, I can be found hanging with my cat, working out or figuring out a jigsaw puzzle.
Book you’ve read over and over again: I’ve never been a big reader. I had to read “Night” in English class in eighth grade and then again in 10th grade.
Top 3 movies: Legally Blonde, Mamma Mia!, Finding Nemo
A bit about your family: I am the youngest (therefore favorite) of three. My family lives nearby, so we get to spend a good amount of time together. My favorite part of our time together is playing with my nephew, a quick and curious toddler.
Favorite food: Pancakes
Thing you’re scared of: Animals that act too much like humans — the Easter bunny, mascots, some animated characters.
Worst habit: Bad posture
Dream vacation: There is still so much I want to see! The top of my list right now is either Greece or any tropical island.
Favorite cocktail: I can never say no to a margarita.
