We had the good fortune of connecting with Lynn Finney and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lynn, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Left Design LLC was derived from the thought process that I had as a child. I was always an out of the box thinker and my mother would hear me talk about things that felt like I was in “Left Field.” She would always tell me that, and I kept that phrase in the back in mind. I realized thinking and going “Left”, was something I could establish as being unique and expressing yourself without the thoughts of others interfering.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
“Left” represents being unique and expressing oneself regardless of what is familiar or uncommon. This definition was derived of what “Left” means to me and it truly sets me apart from anyone else. Everyday that I work with someone new I discover things about my craft and creativity that inspires me to go the next level. Creating this brand was not as easy, but with a few late nights up cultivating my skillset and keeping a positive attitude I shifted into a new realm.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would definitely take my friend to Slutty Vegan. The food is amazing and fulfilling. Another great spot to go to is Ponce City Market, on the rooftop. The vibes there, quick treats, and drinks are good.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to thank anyone that has ever worked with me. Believing in my craft and skillset means a wholeheartedly lot. I love the thought of being able to become someone’s visual pioneer and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
