Gina Russell


Hi, I'm Gina Russell. I provide thoughtful, achievable solutions to the challenges facing creative business owners. Their focus is making great work, mine is HOW the work gets made.

With my diverse background as a designer (Pentagram, Chermayeff & Geismar), leader of creative teams (Clinique Creative Operations), client liaison and small agency founder (Service Station Design), I have experienced the design process from many perspectives. Creatives trust me because I understand them.

Anne Wilsey

I believe that the power of an exhibition is in its ability to spark curiosity and kindle the imagination. As a designer and museum professional, I tell stories with objects and space that connect people with ideas.

I am a recent graduate of George Washington University's exhibition design program and a not-so-recent graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art's illustration program. I live in Washington, DC, where I serve the Smithsonian American Art Museum as a Program Specialist in the Luce Foundation Center.

Hi! My name is Crystal Nava and I am a graduate from Cal State Long Beach. I am a creative designer who is passionate about Sustainability and Biophilia. I like to incorporate these concepts into my exhibition designs, specifically for the younger audiences. I love working with children and my purpose is to make an impact in their lives. I intend to enhance their design thinking process and creativity. Fusing my background in art, design, and museum studies I aim to create innovative exhibits. In my free time, I enjoy going outdoors and taking pictures of my travels.
