Designlovefest was created in 2009 out of Bri’s own obsession with type and images. DLF rapidly became a daily read for over twenty thousand people, thanks to Bri’s exquisitely curated layouts featuring bright colors and style, mixed with witty typography and a flair for the unexpected.

Since then, Bri has taken the role as Art Director and has worked with many brands such as Benefit Cosmetics, Target, Gap, Banana Republic, and more.
