STE 009 – Indianapolis and Graphic Design with Hannah Jones
In this episode we talk with Hannah Jones about her move to Indianapolis, and how her transition from a small town was apparent in the adjustments she made to her new culture and workplace.
- Hannah possesses an undergraduate and graduate degree from Indiana University, and currently works in downtown Indianapolis in graphic design.
- We discuss how people from small towns and cities aren’t that different at a base level, and how their environments incentivize different behaviors apparent in both places (or, how all God’s children are terrible).
- Hannah’s takeaway points for moving to a city are related to cultural adjustment:
- Be patient–you’ll be a fish out of water at first, but continuing to deliberately meet new people will eventually generate a new network of friends and contacts.
- People in the city are stereotyped as being cold or unfriendly, but this isn’t true.
- Mean mugging (or: weaponizing RBF for fun and profit).
