My name is Camilla Behrens and I'm a senior designer & art director at a brand agency in Los Angeles.
I graduated in graphic design at UCLA with a focus on brand development for fashion & lifestyle brands.
During my time at UCLA I also took classes in surface design & textile design, and use those skills in my current job.
While studying at UCLA, I worked for a jewelry brand here in LA where I was in charge of all creative including look books, advertising, web design and blog content. After graduation I worked at AG, a LA denim brand, where I eventually managed the art department. I managed a team of 3 designers, and art directed all look books, packaging, and other design and marketing collateral. After AG I ran my own design business for a while, with clients mostly within fashion and home. For the past two years I've worked as a senior designer & art director at CAA-GBG, a group within talent agency Creative Artists Agency. We help our clients create successful brands within fashion, home and sports. Our work include brand identity, brand strategy, packaging, look books, style guides, campaigns etc. Graphic design is a very broad field with lots of exciting opportunities, and has actually felt like a very practical educational choice as you have so many different directions you can take within the industry. I absolutely love being a graphic designer, and would love to discuss all the great ways you can get into the industry. UCLA was a great school where a lot of my teachers were working in the field, which gave me tools I could easily apply in any job. Feel free to check out my work at camillabehrens.com. Looking forward to speaking with you!
