My name is Rachel Bristol, I am a graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design(SCAD), with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design and a Masters in Art Education. During the past few years I had unique opportunity to work for two divisions under The Walt Disney Company, ESPN and Disney Design Group(DDG), Disney Theme Park Merchandise.
One of the reasons I chose to work for Disney is because I love designing products that bring happiness and joy into people's lives. Designing products is my way of helping people to express themselves! Whether they are celebrating a marathon or simply
looking for a shirt that highlights their personality, the details matter to me. As an artist I thrive on curiosity and discovering new creative solutions that reshape the world around me. As a designer I understand the joy in creating and as an artist I know the value in expression. Together they bring a happiness no one can deny. I am in search of the "right" fit where art is the focus.
During my time with ESPN I worked in a competitive, fast paced, deadline driven environment, producing on-air graphics for ESPN Networks across multimedia Platforms. The confidence and skill set I learned while working for ESPN have proven to be invaluable. As a designer for Disney Design Group I was able to partner with Research and Development, Marvel, Star Wars, Dooney and
Bourke, and runDisney to create original merchandise for Disney Parks andResorts; domestic and global.I was continually relied on to provide innovative concepts and fabrications to create dynamic designs that combined fashion forward trends with the Disney flare.
I am a graphic design professional looking for a company that embraces talent and thrive on molding and shaping their designers. I am a dedicated, passionate professional whose skills in both graphic design and painting give me a unique edge in creating distinctive designs. I have an impeccable eye for detail and I define perfection as an underlaying harmony between the client’s needs and the design. When it comes to my work I always go the extra mile so that it can be the best it can be!
