with my hands k

I'm LINDSEY SARAH THOMPSON, a multi-disciplined maker with a great deal of experience working in varied environments. I thrive off of a good challenge, believe limitation can be a great source of creativity, and have an innate curiousity and interest in function. That interest has lead me from a foundation in the fine arts and teaching, to the measurable aesthetics of marketing, and finally to a user's full experience of a product. Currently focusing on UX/UI design, I work with product and engineering teams to research user behavior, build flows to cater to those functional necessities, create low and high fidelity prototypes to prove out new concepts and features, and communicate clearly with my team to find balance between feasibility and extravagance in an agile startup environment. Always interested in the way things work, I’m getting my hands and head into the development of these interfaces. Context continues to refine a working process, while feeding a hunger for engagement and understanding.

ELD•EN specialized in the reimagining and revitalization of found furniture and niceties. A product of my fancy, I filled the roles of Owner, Curator, Artisan, Photographer and Designer.

Discerning, quality and intention driven, at ELD•EN old was never to be new again. Why would you ever want such a thing? Age has a quality of construction, a richness of history, an integrity of design and craftsmanship rarely seen in the new. The focus was to condition, polish, and build upon–in reverence.
