My name is Chelsey Bachner.
I hold a Masters Degree in Production Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. I'm a life long learner and am always engaging in ways to improve my skills and my value as a designer. I strongly believe that designer should learn as many medias as possible to translate an idea visually in order to disrupt the status quo. I am competent in 3D modeling, rendering, 2D Graphics- both flat design and realism- as well as animation. I have worked on exhibit designs that incorporated augmented reality and digital interfaces tied directly to physical products and displays. Lately I have been learning about interactive and reactive design using sensors as data input that drives visuals. As much as I love working in the digital realm, in my heart of hearts I am a tactile designer with a love of physical structure and materials.
I am a member of AIGA and attended the Shape of Design conference in 2017. I was an attendee of SEGD's Digital Bootcamp in 2017- a seminar which was a crash course in interaction and data driven design. I have also attended online seminars on smart material technology. This past winter, I executed the field design for the NHL Stadium Series at Annapolis Maryland. I digitally painted over 20,000 square feet of realistic ocean waves and aircraft carrier decking. I am currently Design Lead on a multimillion dollar corporate environment rebrand for a large healthcare manufacturing company. I am skilled in reading architectural elevations and strategically branding architectural spaces for maximum brand impact while staying in budget. Recently, I attended the in the SEGD Management Design Conference.
I have been called a “unicorn” in reference to my skillset, approach to design and general willingness to take on any challenge. I love working collaboratively, learning from other designers and passing that knowledge on to junior designers.
Thank you for taking the time to read my cover letter and attached resume.
