About our Speaker

Bridget Drendel is a partner and designer at Project7 Design in Des Moines, Iowa. 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. As their workload grew, they needed to see their layouts in print but had to have a business location in order to lease a printer. So, they rented a space and the rest is history. Today the p7 team has grown to six full-time employees, a web developer, two cats and, of course, a printer.

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.
