Meet our Fall 2013 Jurors!
Jason Laughlin graduated from the University of Louisville in the year 2000, which turned out to be a much less exciting year than many anticipated. During college and beyond he did tours of duty (and he means that in the nicest way) with The DeLor Group, Abney Huninghake Design and red7e. While at these agencies he did work for Churchill Downs, AAA, Sprint, Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, and others – many, many others. • Currently Jason is a Senior Designer with Kindred Healthcare, where he helps to guide the brand of a Fortune 500, 55,000-employee behemoth. All the while he works to show the world that in-house designers can do great work. He has a shelf somewhere with Louisville Graphic Design Association (LGDA) 100 Show Gold and Silver Awards and Louies and an Addy thrown in there somewhere to prove it.
