Getting to Know Us!

I am Brian Glissmeyer, the creative backbone of White Bark Design. I have over 20 years of experience in graphic design. I graduated from the University of Utah with a BFA in Graphic Design back when the Macintosh Classic was around. My passion for design started with typography and printing and discovering a unique ways to visually communicate information and products. There is nothing that excites me more than good solid design, the look and smell of ink on a #1 sheet of paper or the smell of wax used to layout galleys of text. Yes, this is old school stuff and things from the past but this is where my love of design came from.

Not too many things stay the same and we are forced to change with the technology and times. To quote the Six Million Dollar man, “We have the technology. We can make him better. Better, stronger, faster.” It is amazing the new technology, smart phones, faster computers, unlimited data and even tighter deadlines. I am grateful my design experience is rooted in “CRAP”. No, not that type! “CRAP” stands for, contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity. These solid design principles are rooted in training, experimentation, confidence and experience. When these principles are followed an incredible creative things can happen.

I have worked for some amazing companies such as Clarkson Creative, Franklin Covey, OCTanner and LexisNexis to name a few. Here is where I cut my, figurative design teeth, discipline, skills and philosophy as a designer. I have used these skills and experiences in freelance work for companies like ChemDry, 1800Vending, Certifinder and Seattle Sports.
