Hello! I'm Bridget and I'm a Graphic Designer. I became interested in design while in high school at Whitney Young in Chicago's west loop, after enrolling in Gallery 37 Center for the Art's AAEP program. I studied graphic design with students from other Chicago public schools for two hours a day my senior year of high school, and I was hooked. I graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Spring 2012 with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History. I like to ride my Surly Crosscheck and play with my two kittens, Betty and Veronica, in my spare time. I grew up in Rogers Park, currently live in Logan Square, and I like to travel. I am currently freelancing and looking for opportunities in Chicago and elsewhere. Read my resume to learn more, and feel free to contact me.
2011 - 2012 An 100 page book I created to document the history of an awesome neighborhood on the far northeast side of Chicago. Book includes then and now photographs of the area, sourced from the historical society and reshot by me and helpful friends, infographics illustrating how the 'hood as evolved and an interview with a lifelong resident. This project was inspired by that lifelong resident, my childhood neighbor, Helen Martin.
