Katelyn BakerIn putting together this playlist I realized that every song I listen to can somehow relate back to working in an art department. From Robyn’s super relatable “these hours are killing me,” to Chris Thile’s “I'm coming back to you New York, 'cause I need another,” these are the songs and lyrics that have held my hand through, and pushed me forward in my career. They’ve given me confidence before an interview, allowed me to silently vent at my desk after round 5974878465 of tk layout needs more revisions, and given me the headspace to concept a shoot. But most of all, this playlist is a love letter to an industry that I could not feel luckier to be a part of.
