Katherine Forbes, Founder & Designer

I'm Katherine Forbes, founder of Designing the Row (as in Music Row) and creator of Music Biz Besties. I came to Nashville the day after I graduated college because I wanted to be in the music business. Even though I knew no one and nothing about the industry, I was determined to make music my career.

I got my start in artist management and became obsessed with website and social media analytics and the obsession organically grew into freelance work. Now here I am eight years later running my own business designing websites for musicians and small businesses! My primary goal when working with clients is to help them create an online presence that they're not only proud of but that makes it effortless for them to bring in sales and clients of their own.

Kailyn Liebetreu, Creative Assistant

Hey there! I’m Kailyn Liebetreu, the new Creative Assistant at Designing the Row! I’m a recent graduate of Lipscomb University, where I received degrees in Graphic Design and Marketing.

I have an eye for design, typography, colors, and enjoy combining these elements to create a variety of content. I also love photography! Whether I’m photographing people, nature, or objects, I am always happy to have a camera in hand! In attaining my marketing degree, I learned a lot about what makes a website, ad or campaign effective. I recognize social media as one of the most powerful marketing tools available to us, and I really enjoy working with all platforms to further a brand’s reach. I gained experience running social media accounts through my past internship with Provident Music Group.

I grew up in a little beach town along the shores of Lake Michigan, but have loved living in Nashville the past 6 years. The creative energy in this city is palpable, and there is so much to experience. In my free time I love going to concerts, trying new coffee shops, hiking, traveling, and photography!

I am excited to be a part of Designing the Row, and assist Katherine in web design and branding. I aim to start incorporating my experience with photography and social media; to offer these new services to our clients and further their reach in new ways!
