AWARD WINNING CREATIVE DIRECTOR/EXPERIENTIAL DESIGNER
HHi, my name is Bernadett but everybody calls me “BE”. Hence my company name BE-design.
I am a Creative lead, Conceptual designer, and Design Educator, specialising in Experiential design for Events, Exhibitions, and Branded Environments. I am an Award winning designer with 15+ years Industry experience having worked both full-time and as a freelancer for major Experiential Event companies and Creative Agencies.
I love working with people and organisations that engage in collaborative practice. I am able to work on projects from concept to creation, or alternatively can tailor my services to your unique project needs.
I am a versatile creative with many years experience successfully working autonomously or leading design teams to win large-scale pitches. This is due to my naturally curious, highly creative, light-hearted personality. I understand the importance of listening closely to clients, unpacking briefs with care, developing and implementing well-considered design strategies and working side by side with surrounding team members. My leadership style is “lead by example”. I understand the need to inspire those I collaborate with, encouraging an open exchange of ideas from clients, colleagues and key stakeholders. I have mentored many junior designers as well as Masters and Undergraduate students. Some have gone on to take up prominent design positions across the globe. The approach I take to my work has resulted in an impressive portfolio that spans multiple design disciplines.
