Allison is the Creative Director at CLB. She is a multi-disciplinary designer with a background in both graphic design and architecture. With over 18 years of design experience, her work includes award-winning architecture and graphic design– including several years working in global retail design at Nike, Inc and display design at Urban Outfitters.

Allison began her career at CLB in Jackson in 2007, where she worked on projects such as The Boulder and The Butte Residence. In 2009, she the relocated from Jackson to Portland, OR where she began to work for Nike in Global Retail Design. In 2014, she founded the design studio Open Studio Collective with the idea of keeping an open mind in all things in the design process: mediums, typologies, and relationships with clients and collaborators, to name a few. In 2019, Allison’s desire to return to the mountains with her husband and daughter brought her back to CLB, this time in the Bozeman office.

Allison holds a degree in graphic design from Indiana University and a Masters of Architecture from the University of Oregon. She has been an adjunct faculty member at the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts, and a regular design contributor to all things wellness supporting her love for trail running, health and wellness, and the outdoors. Allison enjoys working at all scales, and if her tool belt or hard hat is involved, she will be there.
