Linda Fairchild & Company is a business development creative team that supports entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial ventures.
We understand the importance of the interaction between Visual and Literary communication, and how fine tuning that relationship affects the development and growth of the business. The world has shifted rapidly to 75% Visual, 25% Literary and that affects how we refine and push the message out.
We have deep and diverse experience designing business solutions that come from our unique artistic discipline and expression. As we structure the business solutions in a rapidly tech-oriented landscape, we need to continually revisit the visceral and the real.
As artists do each day as they face a blank canvas or a messy studio. Take the imperfect, messy landscape, shape it and focus in a dynamic environment.
Linda Fairchild's academic work in Design Science at Harvard University shaped her career and profoundly affected her thinking around problem solving and managing complexity in dynamic business environments. Her thesis advisor, Arthur L. Loeb, called his language "Visual Mathematics" and "Design Science" leading to his lifelong collaboration with innovators R. Buckminster Fuller and M.C. Escher.
Linda acts as Chief Creative Officer in the companies she supports, applying structural thinking to the entire landscape of the organization: teams, product lines, environments. She works cross-industry and has restructured medical practices; developed a unique monochromatic design concept for childrenswear in the high-volume garment industry; rapidly scaled product lines for fast-growth precious metal jewelry company; and transformed a historic building in the North Waterfront of San Francisco through the creation of an art gallery and intellectual salon. The building gained notoriety as a vibrant and highly visible, high demand location for emerging businesses seeking space.
Raised in eastern Canada in the Celtic province of Nova Scotia, Linda settled in California following her education in New England. She now lives in Mill Valley, a town well known for its community of Creatives and Thought Leaders.
