Hi! I'm Brittany Schade, a designer, educator, and adventure enthusiast. I currently work on web/mobile projects and teach interactive design at Western Washington University.


Brittany Schade lives in Bellingham, WA where she is an Assistant Professor of Interactive Design at Western Washington University. She teaches a range of topics including web, mobile apps, motion graphics, professional practices, and graphic design. Prior to WWU, Schade taught at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL where she also earned her MFA and BFA.

Schade embodies a diverse range of methods that she incorporates into her projects, including interaction design, printmaking, working with experimental materials, custom lettering, and installation. She has received several awards for her work and has been recognized internationally in print and online publications. In addition, she has produced work for various clients around the country in publishing, packaging, corporate identity, and digital product design. Schade also enjoys traveling to speak about design. Her interests outside of her career are spending time with her family, traveling, yoga, and being with her wiener-dog Charlie.
