Learn more about Brigette’s endeavors in the field of design and her experience volunteering with our chapter.

Tell us a little about yourself. What is your current job?
I am Senior Graphic Designer at The Franklin Institute Science Museum, where I work on various print, environmental and exhibit related projects with the rest of our 4 person design team. As a life-long appreciator of science and astronomy, I’m happy to get to geek out about both science and design at my job! Outside of my full time position at the museum I do freelance work for local non-profits and small businesses, sell graphic design related posters & printables in my etsy shop and am currently working on publishing a card game that I developed with friends and did the graphic design for. Aside from all of that designing, I enjoy hiking in the Wissahickon, playing board games, throwing theme parties and meeting new people.

How long have you been in the field?
I graduated from Moore College of Art and Design and have worked in the field for six years, over five of which I’ve spent working at The Franklin Institute.

Why design? What inspires you to do the work you do?
I always enjoyed art growing up, but never considered it as a career path until I took a graphic design class in high school and fell in love with its mix of creativity and problem solving. The most satisfying aspect of graphic design to me is being presented with a problem to solve—a logo that needs to evoke the unique feel of a business, an interactive that needs to communicate a science concept in an interesting way, a public transit ad that needs to inform people about a social issue – and striving to find the most effective and elegant solution to that problem. The degree of success often varies, but the creative process is always rewarding.

How long have you been an AIGA member?
I have been an AIGA member off and on since college, but plan to stay one for a long time. 

Why did you join AIGA?
Initially I joined AIGA during college to network, and then got involved again to attend events and connect with the rest of the in-house design community.

How have you benefited from your AIGA membership?

In addition to getting more involved through being part of the membership committee, attending events and conferences has had the biggest impact on my career and my work. Both the In-house design conference that our local chapter put together and the national conference in New Orleans last year were truly transformative experiences—in the new perspectives, fresh inspiration and valuable personal connections I gained through each of them.

What do you enjoy most about the Philadelphia Chapter of AIGA?
I really enjoy that the Philly chapter of AIGA is such a welcoming and friendly community—it’s easy to get involved in the organization in many different ways, as well as have the opportunity to connect with designers from every kind of background.
