Hybrid Studio is the home of independent designer and photographer, Brian Bjerketvedt.

Over his 20+ year career, Brian has built a unique set of skills that blend disciplines. A bit analytical, naturally curious and always learning, Brian has had the pleasure of working with clients and brands such as Life Time Fitness, Under Armour, Ecolab, General Mills, Honeywell, Gander Mountain and PepsiCo.

Now he works directly with clients and freelances for agencies and in-house design/marketing departments.

Photography

I've always loved the process of image-making. Working with photography-centric brands as a designer is one of my sweet spots. Moving behind the camera is a natural creative evolution.
From concepting to retouching to color grading, I bring 20+ years of art direction experience to my craft as a photographer.
 
Who hires me
Agencies & In-House Departments
I have experience leading projects, teams or working closely with an existing team. My value comes in my ability to concept and execute at a high level across a wide range of marketing channels.
 
Businesses and Marketing Leaders
Businesses typically come to me when they are ready to show up in a new way. I commonly tap into my network to build small teams around specific needs as businesses grow and evolve.
 
Start-Ups
Getting in on the ground floor to help shape a story or validate the viability of an idea is about as fun as it gets. I'll work at the appropriate speed and right level of fidelity based on where you are at and where you need to go.
 
Digital Product Owners
Regardless of the stage of your product, I can partner with technology and marketing teams to improve a product's UX/UI and bring cohesiveness to the visual language.  I have experience building proof-of-concepts, prototypes, gathering feedback, making iterative changes and delivering assets for launch.
