Ever wonder who the great minds are behind Birchbox’s pretty photos and gorgeous graphics? Here are two parts of our secret sauce: meet Kathleen and Rebecca, the newest additions to our Creative Team!
Rebecca, our new Graphic Designer, recently moved to the Big Apple after earning a BFA in Graphic Design and Drawing, plus a minor in Business—such a smarty pants—from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Rebecca kept herself busy the last semester of college with essentially five jobs (one internship, three jobs, and freelance work), and we’re happy to keep her just as busy here at Birchbox where she creates amazing graphics spotlighted in your boxes each month. We love her happy demeanor and bright smile just as much as her creative genius. Find out more about Rebecca after the jump!
Name/Title: Rebecca Sloat, Graphic Designer
Hometown: Green Bay, Wisconsin
Unofficial role: Vector Queen
Fun fact: When I was three, I unwrapped all of the Christmas presents under the tree before it was even light outside. I was most excited about a Pink Power Ranger watch and some slippers that were meant for my dad.
Beauty confession: I’m totally going to get reprimanded for this… but I don’t wash my face!
Best beauty trick: Lotion to tame fly-aways. When my hair gets a little frizzy, I run a bit through the ends. I always have lotion in my purse (again, I hate dry skin!), so it does double-duty.
Kathleen, our new Production Assistant, recently graduated from The Savannah College of Art & Design where she studied photography. She puts those shutterbug skills to work every day at Birchbox producing beautiful images (plus she’s a master at re-touching photos—see unofficial role below). We’re big fans of Kathleen not only for her photo work but also for her sweet personality and always stylish outfits. Read on to learn more about Kathleen.
Name/Title: Kathleen Lynch, Production Assistant
Hometown: Winter Springs, Florida
Unofficial Role: Retouching Machine
Fun Fact: I know a lot of random trivia! Jeopardy is totally my game.
Currently Loving: Jouer’s MMT. I love the coverage and how lightweight it is.
Worth the splurge: A good mascara!
Best Beauty Trick: Conditioning before shampoo. I feel that it keeps my hair looking healthy and doesn’t dry it out too much.
