The Crew

Brynley Farr
Creative Director
ByFarr owner Brynley Farr is a native sandlapper raised in rural SC. As a child she was obsessed with creating- blank paper became books, shoeboxes became robots and pantyhose eggs became snow globes so "work" is her dream. Brynley loves the process of research and design; most of her work begins as coffee stained sketches and comes to life through collaboration with the outstanding team.  
Laura Windham
Lead Designer
The daughter of an artist and an accountant, Laura knew she wanted to be a graphic designer since she was seven. She is a self-proclaimed nerd, and can often be found lecturing the team on the merits of Harry Potter. She enjoys traveling all over the globe, exploring the mountains and... cats. When you visit ByFarr, you can probably spot Laura by the smoke coming off her keyboard.
Lindsay Colvin
ByFarr Coordinator
Lindsay is a born and raised South Carolinian, with a thick southern accent to match her southern charm. She loves being outdoors with her husband and pup, and taking long walks near the Congaree River. On any given day you can catch her reading Southern Living magazine on her back porch or baking a pound cake in her kitchen. At ByFarr, Lindsay manages the studio and keeps projects rolling along.
Chesson Merritt
Social Media Coordinator
Chesson is a Columbia native that loves to share her passion about all things local through her writing and photography. She enjoys exploring the South, one craft brewery at a time, with her husband and running 5K races. You can spot her behind the lens of a camera, cheering on Clemson, or biking around Kiawah Island. At ByFarr, she creates social media content and works with clients to tell their stories.
Sydney Wickstrom
Junior Designer + Presswoman
Though Sydney was raised by an accountant and an engineer, she developed a keen since for the arts that was fostered by her grandmother. She loves everything outdoors, and can often be found tending to her vegetable garden; trekking through the southern forests, or sailing with her in-laws along the Carolina coast. She is a reader and fan-fiction writer. At ByFarr, she assists in design work and manages the letterpress.
Besides being ByFarr’s favorite team mascot (sorry Finn, the fish!), Captain lives in Chapin with his owners, Brynley and Chris. He loves swimming, paddle boarding and chasing his cat, Junior. His jobs at ByFarr are barking at the UPS truck and sunbathing in front of the glass doors, which keep him very busy every day. He’s only 5 years young and looks forward to being the only shop dog for quite a long time.
