— Creative communications, research, and design for a better world —

We hold a vision of a future where all living things can live and thrive equally.


To use design, strategy, and communications to encourage understanding, collaboration, and cooperation for positive change.


The Bridge Studio is an interdisciplinary design studio based in Boulder, Colorado. Our name is inspired by the long-horizon view seen from the bridge of a ship. Our branding process was inspired by natural systems and geometry. This resulted in a logomark that resembles a compass, ship's wheel, and mandala. Our logomark inspires us each day to look to the future and pursue solutions that are in harmony with people and the planet.

The Bridge Studio was founded by Michelle F. Fox in 2009.

Michelle F. Fox, Director

Michelle Fox is the Director and founder of The Bridge Studio. She believes that design thinking, systems thinking, and creative communications are a potent combination. Together these three things can be used to deliver innovative solutions that address the problems and opportunities of the 21st Century. That is the nexus and niche that the Bridge Studio stands to fill.

Michelle’s early career started in change management and business consulting, which continues to inspire her work today. Since 2006, she has worked in communications for international and domestic nonprofit organizations, think tanks, action research groups, and government, including N. American Tribes. She has been building her international portfolio since 2011, and has traveled to almost 20 countries. Michelle is inspired by the challenge of intercultural environments and finding ways to connect people through art.

Michelle graduated with honors from the School of Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University. There she earned a dual Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic design and Craft/Material Studies and minored in Art History. She continues to explore all of these areas today as she pursues a creative life of service in Boulder, Colorado.

— Art, Craft, and Resilience —

A short documentary and publication by Michelle Fox on art, fine craft, and resilience.

Beyond Resilience

Beyond Resilience was written, illustrated, and designed for people who want to understand what all the hype around “resilience” is about, why it’s important for communities, cities, and governments to consider, and the role that creative and visual communications can play in achieving resilience. In this publication, Michelle goes one step further and considers how an understanding of resilience and the complex system dynamics that it results from can be used to create transformative and long-lasting change in the world today.
