HI

Brittany Davis

THERE! I am Britt, fueled by creative innovation and driven by the opportunity to use design as a tool to inspire.

Name: Brittany C. Davis

Currently, I am an honors graduate student at Savannah College of Art And Design pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. I received my undergraduate degree from North Carolina State University. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Industrial Design and Minor in Graphic Design. Through both my graduate and undergraduate programs I have encountered projects that focused on identity, branding, innovative product design, illustration, research and print. The projects included production for concerts, sporting events, consulting with inventors and marketing for events and guest lecturers.

Hometown: Winston-Salem, NC Current: Charlotte, NC When not designing: reading about design, thinking about design, volunteering.

I love what I do and have had the opportunity to meet some amazingly creative innovators – even some who have influenced my work. I love learning about how people create and listening to how they find inspiration, but more than that I love sharing knowledge and experiences.

Dreams: creative director, design educator, wearing sneakers to work everyday.

I hope you enjoying taking a peek at my creative journey thus far. Thank you,

Design Student Survival Kit | SCAD This was the final project for my Methodological Practice Studio. We were to select a fairy tale or children’s story and extract a message to develop a project. I chose the story of the Ant and the Grasshopper. The moral is “Prepare today for the needs you will have tomorrow” so I thought it would be neat to design a mini prep survival kit for design students to keep as a reference to guide them from student to professional.

Gold Rush 5K 2014 | UNC Charlotte This was an identity update project for UNCC’s annual scholarship on campus race. The previous logo had been use for 3 years and participants wanted a new design for the shirt they receive during registration. My initial inspiration came from the pavement and colors of the paint used on the road.

Crescent City Blues and BBQ Concepts

The project was a contest entry for an annual food and music festival in New Orleans which combines 2 of my favorite things outside of design - food and music. The colors were pulled from different hues of bbq and the “blues� were inspired by the character of the music.

Material Culture Study | Class Studio For this project we had to create a series of posters to promote an exhibit of our assigned object. My object was the Shoe. After conducting research into the history and material culture of sneakers, I decided to highlight the 100th Anniversary of Converse’s classic Chuck Taylor’s with and exhibit called “100 Years of Sole”.

Main logo, sub-brands and icons for beer-based apps. Knowing very little about craft beer and its culture I enjoyed exploring the terms, styles and tastes I encountered during my research. BreweryDB and BreweryMap Available on iTunes.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with a custom wood jewelry group based in Durham, NC founded by my former studio mates. I develop all the graphics in Illustrator and they use a laser cutter to create the pieces. Designs include pieces for Travie McCoy, CyHi Da Prince and Rapsody.(woodvilleinc.com)

Know Your History | Awareness Campaign

This was a self-driven project that started as a Facebook profile image for Black History Month. The first image received such a great responses I continued to make 1 for each day, plus a few extra. It grew into a blog, screen printed shirts and prints. The prints have also been featured as part of Black History Month displays for several programs.
