* history, experience, life
Bryant Bartlett is an artist and graphic designer. Over his lifetime he has held many titles including Airman, Animator, Recruiting Coordinator, Central Flow Lead, Art Director, and Marketing Director. Although he believes himself capable of honoring any title he holds, Bryant most considers himself a creative problem solver—combining his critical thinking skills and visual communication prowess to solve the obstacles before him. His art and designs can be seen around the world including internal Amazon Recruiting Events, Washington Farm Bureau, Creative 24, TurnUp Activism, American Corner Mary (Turkmenistan), Pacific Lutheran University (PLU), Sweden, and throughout the United States Air Force including Arizona, Texas, and overseas in Al Udeid Air Base (Qatar).
Bryant has earned one Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Production Animation from Digipen Institute of Technology and another Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design from PLU. He also holds an Associates Degree in Intelligence Studies from the Community College of the Air Force.
Bryant believes that his varied past and prior life experiences bring a unique and important perspective to his work environment. His accolades from PLU include graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2021, introduction into the Pinnacle Society in 2020, awarded the Spirit of Diversity Award in 2019, and named to the Dean’s list every semester enrolled at PLU. His Air Force accolades include three Air Force Commendation Medals, an Air Force Expeditionary Medal, and he was named the 612th Outstanding Airmen of the Quarter for Q1 in 2013.
When Bryant isn’t creating or thinking about creating, he can be found backpacking in the gorgeous mountains of Pacific Northwest, spending time with his family, enjoying an immersive RPG, or volunteering in his local community.
