Hi! I’m Brianna Burton, a designer + developer from Denver, Colorado. Creativity has driven me most my life, from drawing on the walls of my childhood home, to now pursing a full-time career in design.
Besides creativity, travel has also been one of the biggest driving passions in my life. In high school I spent my summers as a student ambassador for the US, traveling to over 6 countries around the world; including Mexico, Italy, France, Malta, New Zealand, and Australia. It was in these experiences that I learned how to see the world as a whole, treasure our amazing similarities and appreciate our wonderful differences.
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010 with a degree in Advertising Art Direction and a minor in Technology, Arts & Media. While in college I decided to study abroad in Barcelona, Spain and continued seeking adventure in different corners of the world. That decision solidified in me what I had experienced years before. That I was truly a nomad.
After college, I settled into a 9-5 life with freelancing on the side (someone’s gotta pay the bills) and found myself grounded, but my passion for travel stronger than ever. So I started Observant Nomad in January 2012 after I felt the need to inspire myself to feel the same way about the adventure in my own backyard as I did about international traveling.
These days you’ll most likely find me creating something new, speeding the car away for a weekend road trip, jumping out of airplanes for kicks, sampling new exotic foods, or planning my next far away adventure.
