The creative life isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s for those who believe in themselves enough to trust their instincts, leave their comfort zones, and push their talents to the limit. If you’re up for it, keep going.

Ashley HackettGraphic & Web Design , 2013
"[My education] gave me the knowledge of graphic design and the story of printing to do what I do on a daily basis. The instructors were extremely helpful and always did what they could to grow and be a better professional."Read More
Ashley Hackett is working as a dreamcatcher for Lithographics, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee. She’s responsible for print sales and marketing—and spends much of her time networking. “Customer service plays a big part of my day, and at the end of the day it’s [all about] how I can help my customers get what they need.” Ashley moved into her current position quickly after starting in Lithographics’ mentoring program. Today, she says that she loves working with designers and customers to bring their designs to life. “Printing is a forever changing medium and I get to watch it evolve along with the different designed pieces that come through the doors.”
Ashley finds creative inspiration in different printing techniques and by following print work. “My heros would have to be Heather Lose and Kenneth Hackett. Heather has always been an idol to me. Kenneth has always pushed me to follow my dreams.” She recommends that current students get hands on in their learning of the craft. “Spend a day with a pressman to see how much they put into the work that is being printed. It’s truly a fascinating process from start to finish. Experience a web press up-close start to finish.” She adds that it’s important to value the power on networking. “You never know who you will come across in your profession that could open doors for you. Study other peoples printed pieces and figure out what methods they took to achieve it. Brush up knowledge of paper. Paper knowledge goes a lot farther than you would think.”
Ashley, who in 2013 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Tennessee—Nashville, says that her graphic design program got her involved in the design community through networking. “[It also] gave me the knowledge of graphic design and the study of printing to do what I do on a daily basis. The instructors were extremely helpful and always did what they could to grow and be a better professional.”

Jonathan HumphreyCulinary Arts , 2011
"Having this [culinary] foundation has allowed me to get the right opportunities so I can continue to grow as a chef."Read More
Jonathan Humphrey is a sous chef at Mason’s at Lowes Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, responsible for assisting the executive chef in the daily operations of the restaurant. Jonathan maintains the kitchen inventory, oversees organization and cleanliness, and helps to set up and work the line. After working the line at lunchtime, he finishes prep for the evening dinner service.
He’s also a two-time winner of the “Savor Nashville People’s Choice Award.” “The competition features 10 of the best chefs in town and some pretty sophisticated palettes, so it’s a big honor to win,” he says. Jonathan adds that he finds inspiration from competing with other chefs and learning from their culinary histories. “It’s good for young chefs like me to learn from more experienced chefs.” He counts Grant Achatz of Alinea in Chicago as a hero. Chef Achatz battled and beat stage four tongue cancer. “Every chef knows how the tongue is one of the most important tools you have as a chef, but he remained committed to excellence and was able to overcome it.”
Jonathan, who in 2011 earned Culinary Skills Diploma from The Art Institute of Tennessee—Nashville, says that his education helped him to build a solid foundation of the fundamental techniques for cooking. He adds that it helped him learn to carry himself like a professional chef. “Having this foundation has allowed me to get the right opportunities so I can continue to grow as a chef."
