Howdy! Bre D. Legan here – I’m a multimedia artist, writer, and dreamer. I love talking about big dreams and how to move from vision-driven ideas to mission-fulfillment action. (It is possible!) I hope to make design, copywriting, photography, and marketing services accessible to those who need them most through my freelance practice, bdl Design ("beetle" Design). Ask about my sliding scale of services for those who can pay it forward and for those who need greater affordability!
I hold a Summa Cum Laude Bachelor of Art Degree in Graphic Design, Photography, & Writing with a Leadership Certificate from Drury University in Springfield, MO, a Photography Certificate from Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy, and a Grantwriting Certificate from Seattle Central College in Seattle, WA. I was born and raised in a rural farming community of 700 and can trace my farming lineage to the same town for seven generations. I have previously completed a Global Communications Internship in Dharamsala, India and conducted research in Rome, Italy on the refugee crisis. Fast forward to now: by day, I do marketing (and a lil bit of everything else) with a small access-to-education nonprofit + am Drury University's Weaving Professor, and by night, I am a self-proclaimed witch with a penchant for making magic from the mundane. You can catch me slaving over my ancient typewriter, fiddling with an old camera, weaving strange materials with fibers, hanging out in goth clubs, hiking, building a mini-camper inside my Honda Element, and exploring when I can (my catch-phrase when I was 21 was "21 countries by age 21" which, I’m proud to say, was achieved!).
Ultimately, I strive to be a voice and provide a platform of support for marginalized people and wish for everyone to constantly become the best versions of themselves.
