Congratulations, Chelsey!

Hats off to our very own Chelsey Finnimore—She was named to this year's class of "Twenty in their Twenties" by Crain's Cleveland Business! At Bialosky, we are designing environments, and graphic design is one more discipline within those services. Many of us in the firm have experience in design but not in her specialty. That type of thinking broadened our base of thinking. She is a confident and competent designer who is wonderful to be around. You find some young people in architecture who just get it far beyond their years of experience.
