Chelsea Lightfoot graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) focused in Graphic Design from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2014. That same year she began working for The Point Collective – a small design firm owned by veteran designers Jaime Merz and Mandi Chase. As the first employee, Chelsea has had the opportunity to learn from the lead designers and grow into an experienced designer with skills across web and print platforms.
Chelsea has worked in every facet of graphic design including (but not limited to): client communication, project management, initial conceptualization, adapting original designs into web and print collateral, publishing and managing customer facing websites, creating casual video tutorials, and social / email marketing. Her favorite projects always include building detailed digital layouts, usually in website form, that present information clearly to the viewer. She prioritizes organization and efficiency in her work to facilitate the timely completion of projects and collaborative efforts.
Chelsea prefers to spend her free time listening to podcasts, playing videogames, baking, and taking pictures of her charismatic cat, Dandy. Recent personal accomplishments include purchasing tickets for her first trip to Japan and finally catching an elusive stray cat to get her spayed and vaccinated. She envisions a future full of travel and animals of all shapes and sizes.
Chelsea also finds speaking about herself in the third person unnerving.
