Studio Director + Design Director at Gensler
Mary Bledsoe is Gensler Austin’s Workplace Studio Director and Design Director, bringing with her over 25 years of professional design experience and leadership. Prior to Gensler, Mary’s career has included interior design leadership roles at several other prestigious design firms in Texas. Mary began her career in high-end retail design, transitioning to corporate interiors in the late nineties. She has since completed a wide range of project types for both public and private sector clients with a particular focus on Technology and Creative Class clients. Mary’s portfolio of work further includes several product collections for clients such as Milliken and Mannington Commercial.
Mary sees design as the intersection of problem solving and art. She approaches design with a belief that the most meaningful solutions arise out of a collaborative inclusive process; that we don’t all approach things from the same perspective; and that you can achieve your own success while celebrating the talents and successes of others.
