Originally hailing from Chicago, Celeste ventured eastward to study graphic design at Hampshire College under Idea Collective’s very own creative director, Thom Long. Showing a high degree of skill and tenacity out of the gate, we invited her to be a part of our intern program and we’re quickly impressed. Celeste is the rare designer who lives for the details in editorial layout. She’s IC’s go-to proofer and layout master. When she’s not busy rounding up stray commas and designing for Idea Collective, Celeste can be found on a horse…literally. Celeste is as highly decorated equestrian, recently winning 2nd place at the IHSA National Finals, making her #2 in the ENTIRE WORLD at the collegiate level. We look forward to having Celeste back in the fall once she’s done slinging bagels at her hometown bagel shop, Bro’s Bagels, in Wicker Park, Chicago for the summer.
