Our graphic designer, Lucy Cook, is one of those people you can’t help but like. With an infectious laugh and a personal style that blends California cool with classic elegance, Lucy’s the perfect candidate for an edition of Meet Team Gen. She shares with us with her typical day is like, the best part about her job, and how she ended up at BCBGeneration.
Q – What does a graphic designer do?
A – As an in-house graphic designer, I collaborate with the creative team in the creation of all visual collateral that pertains to BCBGeneration.
Q – How did you end up here? Take us through your journey.
A – I’ve led a teaching practice and a freelance practice as well as led the Collage Nights at the Women’s Center for Creative Work. Then one day, I was referred to this opportunity by someone I very much respect in the graphic design community; it was an chance to work with the current art director, Kreshnik Kastrati — whose work I’ve always admired. The rest kind of just fell into place.
Q – What’s a typical day like for you?
A – There really isn’t one. Each day is different, but fun, fast-paced, and spontaneous in its own way.
Q – Tell us about your personal style.
A – Contemporary casual, feminine, elegant, and comfortable. I adore shoes! Especially platform tevas, converse high tops, and suede low heel sandals.
Q – Favorite piece from the BCBGeneration collection?
A – The red maxi I’m wearing. I knew it was going to be a favorite the moment I saw it. It reminded me of the Terrence Malick flick, Days of Heaven.
Q – One fashion rule you always follow?
A – Fishnet tights. I love the drama it adds to any outfit.
Q – You’re on a desert island. What 3 people do you want to keep you company?
A – Finnish American architect and industrial designer, Eero Saarinen and then…Tom Hardy and Adam Driver. This can’t be anymore random, but I like it.
Q – One thing people don’t expect about you?
A – I used to be a competitive distance runner. I placed in the Georgia regional mile and two mile races. I also was a volleyball defense specialist competing on a traveling team. Our training was held at the Florida and North Carolina NIKE volleyball camps.
Q – Best part about your job?
A – It’s the people that excite me. The joy in everyone’s personalities and skills coming together is absolute magic.
