Chalsey Falk originates from good ol' Fargo, North Dakota. She attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. It was there that she began to form connections with some of the best faculty and an engaged design community. December of 2015, she proudly graduated from the School of Art & Design leaving with a BFA in Graphic Design & Interactive Media with a minor and fluency in Spanish.
As a designer, she is a hands on worker, with a process that starts with researching, writing and sketching. She is fascinated with the ins, outs, ups and downs of every project. Some of her greatest influencers are positive impact, human-centered design and results driven products. She strives to create based on the holistic view and satisfaction of an idea.
Chalsey is also a proud volunteer at AIGA, the national community for design, she as been on various committees: Design for Good, Portfolio 1-on-1, Sustainability and the UW-Stout Chapter. In addition to working full-time and volunteering for AIGA, she is also the co-founder of Beard and Blonde, a boutique studio specializing in photography and design for small businesses.
