“I believe that good design is more than making pretty pictures, but about effectively communicating to produce results.”
Hello, I’m Susan Leeson, an award-winning graphic designer in the Sacramento area specializing in logo, print, editorial, marketing, web, social media and ad design for over 20 years.
I graduated cum laude with a B.A. degree in Communication Design in 1996 from CSU Chico where I was awarded the highest design honor, Outstanding Design Student. My design career was launched with job offers from two leading design firms in the Sacramento area prior to attending my own graduation ceremony. Since then, I’ve had the honor of earning Gold Sacramento Ad Club awards for my work and my designs have been published in respected trade publications.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work for a number of prominent design firms in the area with clients ranging from fortune 500 companies such as Intel and 3Com, to state agencies like CalSTRS and California Department of Food and Agriculture, to small start-ups and non-profits like the Business Volunteers for the Arts. Over the past few years, I discovered my love for editorial design as the Art Director for Kidaround magazine. Today I work as an independent graphic designer for marketing agencies and design firms while providing personalized service to local businesses.
As an experienced professional, I’m fiercely committed to excellence in everything I do. I’m obsessed with perfecting details and making sure that I get it right the first time. I’m passionate about creating quality, unique designs tailored to each client while meeting deadlines and staying on budget. Armed with strong communication and organizational skills, I have the knowledge it takes to lead a project from the sketchbook to the final product, while ensuring that what I create is not only beautiful, but produces results.
Don’t just take my word for it, see what my clients have to say about the success that I’ve brought them.
