Vanessa Bell, Chief Creative Officer (CCO)
Vanessa Bell is the owner and founder of Bell Design since 2006, an independent business focused on marketing, branding, website design and project management.
After an early start in the fashion world in London, she eventually segued into graphic design at Pentagram – an international multi-disciplinary design firm – where she worked in both their London and San Francisco offices. Later, as Director of Marketing in the corporate arena she advanced her skills in branding, systems and organization, and juggling large scale projects with the dexterity of a plate-spinner!
In Asheville, Vanessa has been able to nurture her creativity and entrepreneurial spirit further by supporting a wide variety of clients as they develop and grow their own businesses: from PR/marketing to website design, branding to business consulting.
In her spare time (hah!) she also co-founded and runs HADAYA Global, a grass roots organization dedicated to supporting refugees and at-risk youth, through the power of books, education and play. To date, they have worked in at least ten countries around the world and brought hope and joy to thousands of children.
