Bridget Drendel

Partner + Designer

Bridget Drendel is a partner and designer at Project7 Design. 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 on the studio’s print and web design 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, and also currently serves on two boards through the DMACC advisory committee and Dental Connections board.

Latte—any kind, hot or cold! And LaCroix, of course!

Office Music I'd Veto
Anything really loud. I prefer dead quiet, an audio book, or Kenny Chesney.

Best Part of My Job
The wide range of creative projects and, as cheesy as it sounds, the great people I get to work alongside every day.
