Don’t let my BA in Biology fool you – Creative is my middle name. Actually, it’s Lori, but you get the idea. After stints as a veterinary technician, Herman Miller sales assistant and data analyst at Enron (I had nothing to do with their demise, I swear), I went back to school in 2000 for graphic design and found my calling.

I’ve been working in the design world for over 12 years, starting off at small, boutique design firms, moving on to in-house art direction for Blockbuster Online and now working on my own as a freelance designer/art director. My projects range from all aspects of print to online for ambitious start-ups, non-profits and small to Fortune 500 companies. I am proficient in industry software applications for both online and print production.

Design services include (but are certainly not limited to*):

  • Art direction
  • Website design
  • Email design and development
  • Corporate identity and branding (aka logo design)
  • Collateral/Sales materials
    – Includes business cards, letterhead, brochures, etc.
  • Annual reports
  • Social media marketing design
  • Infographics
  • Color palette exploration
  • Icon design
  • Label/Box design
  • Pretty much any printed piece

*Flash. I don’t do flash.

I love being creative, crafty (in the making crafts sense) and resourceful and I can make an art project out of just about anything. Something old to something new is my motto. I’ve even made my own toothpaste. Truth.

Living in and inspired by the amazing city that is Austin, Texas, I’m here to help you communicate your vision and bring powerful ideas to life.

    Suzanne is a unicorn. Which is the highest kind of multi-species collaborator, designer, art director, savvy person you could hope for. And she smiles a lot and laughs. Which is so necessary. She also listens and hears your needs with that intuitive sense that you can’t package or buy. A true designer for your individual needs. I will forever extol Suzanne’s virtues. We that same Biology background but have worked in design/web/advertising for many years. I have worked with many, many brilliant and talented designers in NYC, Texas, San Francisco and Suzanne is tops. A gem.
