Isla Bell (@islabell) works as a designer at The Bold Italic. She grew up in Namibia and Scotland before landing in SF 6 years ago. She's always been into photography and is drawn to clean colors, balance, and geometric shape. Her heart beats really fast when she captures a moment that feels right...also when she drinks too much coffee. Isla probably uses the word "dude" too much and has been playing Major Lazer "Get Free" on repeat for about a week now.
