Hello! My name is Shaylyn Berntson and I am the Senior Studio Producer in the Play Lab at IDEO. At IDEO I am a key player in our general studio operations, the handling of external and internal correspondence, the studio's brand strategy, studio experience, and more. I work hard to ensure studio efficiency, a streamlined workflow, as well as lead our social media and brand strategy efforts.
In addition to my work at IDEO, I also work as an Editorial and Social Media Intern at NYC-based travel company, Passion Passport. At Passion Passport, I leverage my love for anthropology, travel, writing, and photography to pitch, develop, and effectively publish various travel-related articles and content. I also aid in the production of Passion Passport's tri-weekly newsletter -- the Boarding Pass -- as well as their Photo of the Day series on Instagram.
In my spare time, I can be found out on the trail, camping in the mountains, or curled up with a good book. My passion for photography and travel also takes me various places where I've been able to document, learn, and explore. Most recently, I was a part of GoPro's Experience Different Campaign which was shot on location in New Zealand, and I also produced video content for Snap (famously known as Snap Chat) to be used in advertising initiatives.
Overall, I am a dedicated storyteller, photographer, and writer who strives to generate educational, enriching, and meaningful content, both personally, and professionally for brands and organizations. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Boise State University and am skilled in Microsoft Office programs, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop, and Final Cut Pro.
