Get to Know Margaret

Why do you think clients should choose to work with Bluegrass?

I get to work with two of the coolest girls in the world, Jen and Mayme.

When people ask what you do, how do you respond?

I am a graphic designer which means I always try to identify the type fonts used in the opening credits of movies. I usually mention my thirty-plus years of design work within the Thoroughbred industry as well. It is a highly specialized area of expertise and I really enjoy working with our area's horse farms and equine agencies and businesses because of that experience, as well as the wide range of commercial businesses we are so blessed to have here in the Bluegrass region. Maintaining attention to detail, utilizing the rich history of design, and looking at projects from many different perspectives are just a few of the ways I approach my work. Certainly, the range of clients we work with at Bluegrass keeps things interesting as well as the constantly changing aspects of the creative process.

What is a little known fact about you?

My uncle, Orris Reynolds, Jr. of Louisville, Kentucky, was the first Kentucky Derby festival king in 1937 when the Kentucky Derby Festival was more like Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

What is an accomplishment you’re proud of?

My 40-year marriage, my two sons (both Eagle Scouts), and my 40+ years career in design.

Who are 4 people in history you would invite to dinner?

Margaret Mitchell, Edith Wharton, Damon Runyon, and Cot Campbell...all great storytellers.

What is your favorite part of working at Bluegrass?

The people. We have such a great mix of professionals who are really dedicated to doing the best job possible for our clients. And our clients are the best of the Bluegrass as well. Our Bluegrass team really enjoys acting as the 6th man off the bench for our clients.

What is a little known fact about you?

I have a West Highland White Terrier, Rufus (my third) and a gray tuxedo rescue cat Emma Lou, who torments Rufus unmercifully. I also have my four-legged grandchildren: a retired New York Champion Thoroughbred racehorse/stallion Ibboyee who is now a Grand Reserve Champion Dressage horse and a hunter/jumper and his various offspring; Pearl, a Border Collie/Corgi mix; Sprout (daughter of a Jack Russell named Bean), a Jack Russell/Corgi mix.

Why do you think clients should choose to work with Bluegrass?

We take special interest in becoming a part of each of our client's teams in order to give the best customer service possible.
