A graduate of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Vivienne came to Chicago upon graduation to pursue her interest in art and design. Growing up she dreamed of becoming an astronomer, and that love of pondering about the outside world, personal discovery and making life more meaningful is still at the heart of her work. It’s also what brought her to the Netherlands before joining the BatesMeron team to study Dutch design, history and out-of-the-box thinking.
Vivienne’s passion is creating smart designs that visually satisfy her love of the details, from typography and risography to pixel moving. In her free time, she spends copious amounts of time and money on finding new, funky typefaces, paints portraits, catches up on comedy podcasts and hones her recipe for the perfect bloody Mary.
