Hello!
I am a graphic designer and teacher living in Nashville. I’ve recently finished my Graphic Design MFA at the Rhode Island School of Design. I hold a BA in History and International Studies from the University of Washington. Prior to graduate school, I co-founded, managed, and designed [b]racket magazine as well as a screenprinting studio, Mesh Printing. My ability to plan and manage projects is largely due to my experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Moldova from 2009-11. I have taught graphic design, screenprinting, and English as a foreign language at Daegu Catholic University and RISD.

I am available for projects and collaboration. Email me at chrisbcote@gmail.com
