Bel Downie is Creative Director, Art Director, Designer and founder of Hitparade, a creative studio in Los Angeles. She is currently working at Google with YouTube Music.


My career centers around my passion for music, specializing in creative direction and digital design for artists including Action Bronson, Alt-J, Charli XCX, Chromeo, DRAM, Galantis, Hercules & Love Affair, Icona Pop, Janelle Monáe, Lil Uzi Vert, Missy Elliott, Niia, Santigold and The War on Drugs. 

When not designing, my passion for music extends to DJing and in 2016 I co-founded Act Natural, a monthly club music night rooted in the underground electronic world.
