In this episode, Chelsie and Erin talk about what makes a person’s career work for them, why design is important, work/life balance, and what goes into saying yes and no to a new project.

She is the owner of Lettering Works, a branding studio that builds community around causes and brands through quality, custom art and design. Chelsie is passionate about craft and sells her own line of art products at the Field Museum, Chicago History Museum, and other locally owned gift shops.
