design:retail's annual 40 Under 40 award recognizes the retail design industry’s top young professionals and up-and-coming future leaders, including retailers, designers, architects, manufacturers, brand managers, entrepreneurs and innovators.

We are pleased to share that Bergmeyer Associate and Senior Environmental Designer, Hannah Friskey, has been named as one of the 40 Under 40 honorees for the class of 2020! Stay tuned for the full profile which will be featured in the May/June issue of design:retail magazine.

"Hannah’s creative leadership of brand strategy and environmental graphic design projects enhance Bergmeyer’s capabilities as a design collaborative every day," explains Brian Perlow, Associate Principal at Bergmeyer. "She has considerately developed the customer experience for an extraordinarily diverse variety of clients in such markets as retail, restaurant, and transportation.

"Bringing an inspired focus to her design work, Hannah has a distinct and expressive point of view. Her strengths as an environmental design leader come from her laser-sharp focus on creating emotional connections with our clients, her superior graphic and verbal communication skills, and years of experience in the retail client world. Hannah puts forth instinctually-strong insight and a long-term strategic view in her work, elevating Bergmeyer's environmental graphics and brand strategy expertise to a whole new level. Exceptionally skilled in both two and three dimensions (and shifting gears between them), Hannah's creative dexterity is what clients are seeking out when they retain our firm.

Outside the office, Hannah can be found hunting down beaches (even in the dead of winter), taking her French Bulldog named Pepe for walks (she is pretty amazing), and most recently, Marie Kondo-ing everything she owns."
