ABOUT & CONTACT INFORMATION
"For as long as I remember, I’ve always had an intense passion for drawing. That’s why when I started my own design consultancy in 2013, ‘Pencil’ seemed like an appropriate name. It’s where my love and passion for design started and also the primary tool for both communicating and creating great ideas." - Bertholt, Founder & Principle Designer
BERTHOLT SCHROEDER \ ber-tōlt \
Bertholt has managed and executed dozens of design & visualization projects for clients as big as P&G, Miller Coors, Yum, Sargento, and as small as single-person startups. After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a BS in Industrial Design, he joined a small design firm in Cincinnati specializing in visualization, video, and packaging design. He also returned to the University of Cincinnati as an adjunct professor teaching classes in industrial design and design communications. In 2013, he started a design consultancy called Pencil so that he could pursue his passions of providing expert product design and illustration services, producing his own products, concept art, and illustration, and working together on projects with his wife and other designers. In 2013 and 2014, he collaborated with The Launch Werks to provide design services to start-up companies in Cincinnati; including Frameri Eyewear. In June 2014, he relocated his family to Buffalo, NY and looks forward to many years of consulting in New York.
Fun Fact: I used to want to be a paleontologist, and yes, I still draw dinosaurs.
