Bridget Drendel

Chief Creative Officer

Bridget Drendel is Project7 Design’s Chief Creative Officer. After starting her design career at DMACC, Bridget studied in Toronto and at Columbia College Chicago. With experience in a variety of studios and corporate environments, she honed her skills before co-founding p7 where she focuses leading design and web projects as well as client relations.

In April of 2017, Bridget founded p7 alongside Katherine Hutchison after the pair teamed up to work on freelance client projects together. Eventually they decided to buy a printer—but because Bridget knows she’ll ramble, you can find the story of two freelancers turned business ladies in Kat’s bio.

Outside of the office, Bridget enjoys spending time with her husband and two kids. Her family loves traveling, spending time at home, and planning new adventures. Bridget has been an adjunct at DMACC since 2008. She also currently serves on three boards including the DMACC advisory committee, Dental Connections board and Women’s Reciprocity Group of Des Moines.
