Hello, I’m Brit.

I grew up solving puzzles and orchestrating neighborhood plays—preluding a formal education in communication. At the University of Georgia, I studied photojournalism, magazines and graphic design.

With an eye for beauty and a head for strategy, I then found my sweet spot in the world of branding. Today, you will find me tackling visual and verbal identity, naming and brand strategy projects with equal enthusiasm. This work ranges from startups to corporate giants...local businesses to international non-profits. As art director, senior designer, and resident intern mentor, I wear the nickname,“switch-hitter,” like a badge of honor.

Prior to my current role at Matchstic, I accumulated experience at Son&Sons in Atlanta, Moosylvania in St. Louis, and have worked with events and freelance clients for nearly a decade. Recently, I traded in a few wild years of co-producing CreativeMornings Atlanta, for Fridays spent at the Universtiy of Georgia as an adjunct professor of design.

Outside the studio, I head toward wide open spaces with my husband, Wes, and tend to my windowsill garden, yoga practice, and insatiable appetite for books.

I closely and curiously study the zeitgeist and brand culture. Current fascinations include color theory and trend forecasting. This thirst to learn continues to draw me to branding—as Michael Bierut has said, "use design as a secret disguise to infiltrate whatever world you want to go into.“

I believe that the curious students, the experimental practitioners and the deeply immersed meaning-seekers will create our strategic and offbeat brands of tomorrow.
