OTIS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
Chase Shewbridge will graduate in May with a BFA in Graphic Design. Chase’s design work ranges from careful minimal compositions to messy grainy typography and everything in between. When designing, Chase enjoys considering all possibilities in a digital space by bringing in hand drawn or self-manipulated imagery or typography to add a special level of dimension. He believes in merging music into design whenever he can. His design playlist includes Donna’s Dim All The Lights and the entirety of Robyn’s new album. Chase dreams of designing album covers and packaging for artists like SZA, Solange, Wet, and Frank Ocean, to name a few.
