Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Will Bryant

Independent Illustrator, Designer, & Art Director

Portland, OR, USA
As a young freelance creative I've had the privilege to work with premier clients such as Ace Hotel, Benefit Cosmetics, Chronicle Books, Converse, Fiat, Good Magazine, K2 Snowboards, Levi's, Nike, Ogilvy & Mather, Poketo, Ray Ban, Stussy and numerous bands/record labels.

I have experience in apparel design, typography, branding, collateral, book design, murals, installations and have exhibited work internationally.

I plan to continue my own art practice while pursuing an MFA at Portland State University. My ultimate goal will be to follow in the footsteps of my mentor, Kate Bingman-Burt, and become a professor while continually producing work that creates opportunities for an audience to interact with the artist.

PUBLIC SCHOOL

Partner

PUBLIC SCHOOL is a group of creative folk working in east Austin together, yet not together. We share studio space and ideas as well as a fondness for the Mexican food on our side of town. When a project demands numerous skill sets, we collaborate to produce the end result. Collectively we have worked together for Good Magazine, Chronicle Books, and Rockport Publishing.
