Bart started his career at Central Austin Management Group, designing for local household brands such as Uchi, Ace Tailors and The Belmont. From there he transitioned his love for art and design to the nonprofit world and worked in-house for Austin Museum of Art (now, The Contemporary) producing the look & feel, collateral materials, and print and digital advertising for ‘La Dolce Vita,’ its signature annual fundraising event. While on the design team at LewisCarnegie, Bart worked on rebranding the Austin Bat Cave and the Delta Zeta national sorority, and the “Signature Course Stories” book and website for The University of Texas School of Undergraduate Studies. Currently as Senior Design at Arrow, he has worked to rebrand companies like National Medal of Honor Museum, Independent Bankers Association of Texas, Trinity Episcopal School and Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies. Bart has also worked as a freelance designer while producing branding, web design and print design for Swoon Salon, City of Austin's Souly Austin Business District Incubator, Cabo-bob's Burritos, and Austin Restaurant Week.
Within Austin’s design community Bart serves as the Programming Co-Director for the Austin chapter of the AIGA—The Professional Association for Design, where he is President Emeritus (2013–15) and has volunteered as CreativeMornings’ Summit Workshop leader and Advisory Committee for Austin Design Week.
