Hi, I'm Brittney Gold! I am a senior in the PSU Graphic Design Program. I specialize in illustration and animation. I love packaging design, product design, narrative design, and am interested in gaining skills in web design.
I am passionate about graphic design because it allows me to combine the analytic and creative parts of my brain to create innovative solutions. I love web design and animation, and pretty much live behind my screen.
I'm all about creative process, illustration, art direction and social media. I'll be hosting a workshop about my own creative process in my sketchbook @ 6pm! Bring yours and let's make something together :)
Lately, I have been learning how good it feels to slow down. I've been thinking more than making, but with the things I have been working on I try to make sure that they are considerate, and positive while still being realistic.
I've always had a lot of interests. I came to graphic design because it allows me to interact with so many of my passions at once. I get to do everything—from typography to illustration to 3d modeling, and much more.

I am a working videographer and photographer finishing up a design degree. I love to work on complex projects that combine these disciplines as well as those that share the rich history where they intersect.
If I were to describe who I am as a creative I would have to say I am balanced, a little bit of the left brain a little bit of the right. I love exploring creative potential but I am also pretty good with business management.
I am passionate about creating multi-sensorial experiences. From branding to installation art, my goal is to create an experience, to tell a story, and connect with the viewer beyond just the visual form.
