The Designer


Gabrielle Blades

Graphic Designer and Business Owner

Gabrielle Blades graduated from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Graphic Design in 2013. She has three years of experience working with a variety of clients and projects. Her passion for the work she does comes from a lifetime of being an artist who wants to communicate ideas in new ways. Her range of skills goes from logo design and publications to illustrations and typography. Prior to Blades Creative, Gabrielle worked with the City of Chattanooga on the Multimodal Transportation Center Study, began contracting with LAUNCH Chattanooga, and eventually became a full time freelance designer. Beginning with pen and paper, connecting with her clients, and getting it right are just a few things that bring her joy. She also loves serving as Director of Events and Programming for AIGA Chattanooga. When she’s not creating things Gabrielle is a wannabe ballerina, cat lover, and professional vacationer.
