Fractional Creative Director

Invest in your organization's future without the overhead cost or commitment.

Just because you can do it in-house, doesn't mean you should.

Publishing reports, branding, and web design can all be daunting tasks for even the most dynamic and skilled leaders. Not to mention knowing who to hire, when, and the project management it takes to ensure creative projects run smoothly. 

Inconsistency and inefficiency of communications and design projects can be the slow death of your organization.

Don't let funding or staffing limitations prevent you from producing the products your organization deserves.

Good design improves the success of businesses, nonprofits, and governments alike. Yet, communications budgets at mission-driven organizations are notoriously underfunded, and design budgets even less so.

Some organizations have a communications director, but even fewer have a creative director. Subject matter experts and administrative staff are left to navigate creative projects without support, which can lead to burnout and overspending.

This is where The Bridge Studio comes in as your Fractional Creative Director. Choosing The Bridge Studio to lead the creative arm of your organization means:

  • you and your staff can stay focused on what you do best, saving you time and money;
  • you’ll have a supplementary leader on your team to ensure communications and design projects hit the strategic mark on time and budget; and
  • your communications and branding will be consistent across platforms, projects, and programs — attracting the eye of new audiences and funders.


If you’re ready for a quote, let’s schedule a call to discuss your organization’s needs. By understanding your goals and unique requirements, we’ll be able to produce a tailored approach and cost estimate that gets you the results you deserve.

Hi, I'm Michelle Fox, the creative director and owner of The Bridge Studio.

I’ve worked with mission-driven organizations since 2006, and have a deep understanding of how communications teams within nonprofits and government agencies work.

I began my career at ChildFund International in Richmond, VA. Then moved to the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C.. At the Institute of Social and Environmental Transition-International, I served as the Director of Art + Communications. There I helped attract over half a million dollars in funding for creative communications, conducted my own research, published reports, white papers, and presented internationally on the role of creative communications and design in driving social change and building urban climate resilience.

This track record speaks to the level of commitment I put toward the projects and people I collaborate with. I can help you attract funding and deliver against your promise to generate real-world impact with the grants and funding you are awarded.
