RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN (RISD) BFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN
Chloe Scheffe is a senior in Graphic Design at Rhode Island School of Design. She hails from Seattle, has a fraternal twin sister, and loves weird display type, fresh flowers, English quiz shows, and a good sentence. She currently designs for and manages the RISD Design Guild, and has done a flurry of internships, most recently with Michael Bierut at Pentagram’s New York office. Her work has been recognized by the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, the Core77 Design Awards, and Communication Arts. Someday (soon, she hopes) she’d like to work in London, design books for a small publisher, do a large public installation, or try her hand at curation.
