Brandy VanGessel is a multi-disciplinary designer creating 3d visualizations, graphics, environmental and product designs for entities like Steelcase, Meijer, Michigan State University and the Detroit Lions. She is passionate about creating experiences and providing education through design.

Beginning as a 3D generalist in 2008, she went on to hold Creative Director positions at environmental design firm Britten Studios and CGI firm Think Chromatic. She is a graduate of the DAGD program. Currently, she does design work at her firm specializing in branding, packaging, product and environmental design for emerging markets. As an instructor, she emphasizes real-world techniques and practical application, encouraging students to seek efficiencies and use the design process to guide their work.

As evidenced by the 3d printer in her dining room, Brandy is a lifelong maker and enjoys creating clothing, costumes, and home decor. When she has time, she loves diving into a good fantasy novel."
