In addition to teaching, Brytton is a freelance graphic designer and was a member of DEMO Project, an artist-run contemporary and alternative project gallery formerly located in Springfield, IL. Her exhibition practice is centered on the intersection of commercial and fine art practices, as well as the contrast of traditional historical production and current digital trends. Her work explores the presentation of self in the current society of constant communication and the self as an edited presentation in that context, including how the self is projected, edited, and misconstrued through digital communication. Her goals in the classroom are teaching how design can solve problems, tackle social justice and environmentalism while providing student’s with a mix of client and theoretical problems.
