We’re happy to welcome back our friend Jill from Layered Vintage!
1. What inspired you to start your business?
The real reason is a tad bit sad but I needed an outlet and something to distract myself from life. My dad was diagnosed with aggressive lung cancer and 2012 to 13 were so tough. I had creative genes in me but had put them to sleep back in high school to persue what I thought would make me happy- successful career and money. Turns out it gets old… Especially when you don’t believe in it.
2. What is your big why?
Life is too damn short. I can’t spend the majority of my days doing something I don’t care about and even sometimes hate. The American Dream has changed or should change. I grew up thinking career, marriage, buy house and have kids. I did it and not loving my job made me someone that wasn’t I never wanted to be. Having a passion and pursuing it has been so fulfilling and as a result I know I’m a better wife and mom. It’s definitely a little bit selfish but we got one life and the choice is ours to find happiness.
3. Favorite TV Shows?
Homeland, Walking Dead, True Detective, Game of Thrones…. All movies my husband sucked me into and now I’m addicted and love watching them in bed together. We are such nerds!
4. Favorite Typeface?
No loyalty. I’d rather collab with calligrapher and use their work to steal any thunder that a font would have. None jump out they’re all boring to me.
5. One Random Fact:
I’m adopted. Was adopted as a baby from Seoul and have a blond sister ;)
