Hege Bryn

Senior Designer

Brooklyn, NY, USA
My work has especially focused on social impact projects through print and interactive web design for non-profit clients, as well as cultural and educational institutions. Recently I've worked on projects for organizations such as American Cancer Society, Vital Strategies, NASTAD (National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors), Climate Central, Enodo Rights, Northwell Health, Free Speech TV, Landesa and Gulf of Mexico Alliance, among others.

I have 15 years of experience as a designer, art director and production artist working at various agencies, media, and print production companies. In Norway, I've been hired by agencies TIBE Republic, NeoLab and Knowit Experience, where I've worked with clients such as Sparebanken Vest, BKK, Fjord Tours, Leroy Seafood, Odfjell, Austevoll Seafood, Friele Coffee, The National Stage (Bergen), and more.
