Hello! My name is Briar Levit. I hold a Masters in Communication Design from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UK) and a BA in Graphic Design from San Francisco State University. I started BriarMade, in 2006, while simultaneously art directing Bitch magazine. These days my focus is BriarMade and teaching design at Portland State University.My goal is to design the best visual solutions as well as the greenest, from format through production.
Some fun facts: During my tenure as a designer, I have enjoyed living almost exclusively in places with names ending in -land: Oakland, England and now, Portland. When not creating printed matter in one form or another, I like to walk with my miniature, but ever-so-rugged dogs at the Columbia Gorge. Beyond that, you’ll find me combing through the thrift store treasures or basking in the sounds of Gabriel-era Genesis, Miles Davis, Aphex Twin and more.
