Hi! I'm Susie!
I'm a freelance graphic designer based in St. Augustine, Florida with my husband, toddler, dog, and cat. Born and raised on the East Coast of Canada, I bounced around to Toronto and Calgary before moving to the United States.
I started my career in journalism, working the 5:00 AM shift at the local radio station, writing stories and reading on air. I was offered an opportunity to work in the communications office at my alma matter and that began a decade-long pursuit in marketing & communications across industries and sectors.
My favorite part of marketing was always working with graphic designers to develop visuals that spoke to people. In 2017, I started working professionally as a designer and in 2019, began a diploma program in Graphic Design & Interactive Media. Graphic design is where it finally all clicked - visual communications that get customers to notice.
So What Exactly Do I Do?
I'm your graphic designer who can sit in on your marketing meetings and help figure out what you need. Whether you're a big company needing some extra graphics help, or a solo entrepreneur needing a little bit of everything to get started. I can help you develop your branding from the ground up, or strengthen current branding with awesome visuals across all channels.
Who Do I Work For?
I work for people who need me! That has included Real Estate brokerages and Realtors, breweries and liquor retailers, non-profits and events, school districts and education companies, oil & gas, and more. My clients are across the United States and Canada.
