ARI MCBRIDE (Graphic Designer/Marketing Associate) is excited to start a fourth season with Aurora. Arí spent the previous 18 years working as Art Director in the Atlanta advertising industry. At Clockwork Advertising she had a blast as an instrumental part to the launch of Don Julio Tequila in the US (which came with its own perks). After starting a family, Arí went on her own to develop BoyMeetsGirl Creative, an 11-year marketing & design partnership servicing clients in the corporate world from Suntrust to local manufacturers like Biolab and the occasional startup looking to find their spot in the marketplace. Ari is a graduate of The Atlanta College of Art & Design with a degree in Advertising Design—but has always had a deep love for the performing arts. Now at Aurora, Ari handles all branding, print and web design—adding a fresh and colorful perspective to all our programming. Ari along with Aurora's savvy marketing team help promote our broad range of now more than 800 events a year, creating memorable campaigns and eye-catching visuals that make Aurora one of a kind. She’s blessed with a testosterone-heavy household, a messy house and lots of loving hugs before bedtime!
